G20 Summit: Preparations are in full swing for the upcoming G20 Summit scheduled to take place on September 9th and 10th in the capital city of Delhi, India.
Hundreds of delegates from both domestic and international locations are expected to gather in the city for the significant event.
However, amidst the grandeur of this summit, there arises an unusual concern—monkeys.
In this regard, officials have adopted a remarkable strategy to ensure the security of the venues connected to the summit that might be vulnerable to monkey intrusions.
In an innovative approach to keep monkeys away from the designated areas for the G20 Summit, officials have implemented a unique strategy involving langurs.
However, it's important to note that these langurs are not real ones but rather lifelike cutouts strategically placed to deter actual monkeys from trespassing into crucial locations.
With the aim of preventing monkeys from infiltrating important sites, authorities have strategically positioned these langur cutouts as a preventive measure.
Videos of these faux langurs have gone viral on social media platforms, capturing the attention of the public.
Satish Upadhyay, the Vice Chairman of NDMC, has revealed that large cutouts of langurs have been strategically placed in various locations across the capital city of Delhi. These cutouts have been installed near significant places like Sardar Patel Marg and Shastri Bhavan.
The purpose behind these cutouts is to prevent monkeys from coming to these areas, as they get scared and go back to their natural habitats.
It is worth noting that relocating the monkeys is not a viable option. To keep the monkeys away from these locations, the administration has also employed approximately 30-40 trained individuals who know how to emit sounds that discourage the monkeys from approaching these sensitive areas.
