" NDMC also acquired rubber bullet guns for scaring away the monkeys, he added."
New Delhi, July 31 - Union Minister for Urban Development M. Venkaiah Naidu Thursday said that efforts are being made to tackle the monkey and dog menace inside and around Parliament House.

The measures being taken include scaring the monkeys away by trained persons who disguise themselves as langurs, Naidu stated in a written reply to the Rajya Sabha.

He said that the New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) has hired 40 young people for this purpose.

NDMC also acquired rubber bullet guns for scaring away the monkeys, he added.

Naidu added that a team of dog catchers will be visiting Parliament House and surrounding areas twice a week to catch unimmunised and unsterilised stray dogs.
