Dr. Parviz Piran has been the best Joint Director that the Animal Husbandry Department of the BBMP has ever had. He is knowledgeable, involved, sympathetic, fair, rational and proactive.
He has always followed the law to the letter, unlike other officers who offer sops to extricate themselves and are quite willing to bend the rules.
He has given both time and sincere effort to understand issues. He has not waited for NGOs to file reports and just passed cursory comments on them.
He has spent a lot of time on the ground, visiting problem areas and tracking NGOs to check on the work they do.
He has held emergency meetings with NGO representatives on the roadside at 9 p.m. and only concluded the meeting after the issue was fully thrashed out. You do not get government employees who work like that.
Dr. Piran does not have ego hassles. He does not sit at his table and expect volunteers to visit him. He is always ready to get up and meet people in their time and space. He is always available, always responsive and always willing to go hands-on in any situation.
He has been an indefatigable driving force in the critical ABC Programme and has constantly encouraged sincere volunteers and responsible NGOs to participate.
He has always been the first person to visit areas where human-animal conflicts have occurred and does not relent till the situation is defused. He personally counsels people and communities, never resorts to knee-jerk responses and always looks for a constructive solution which is fair to both animals and humans.
THE URGENT REQUIREMENTS OF THE ABC PROGRAMME IN BANGALORE CITY CAN ONLY BE MET UNDER DR. PIRAN’S LEADERSHIP.
SIGN TO SUPPORT DR. PIRAN, NOW!

Extend Dr. Parviz Piran's term as Joint Director, AHD
Hate groups in Bangalore, the uneducated/uninformed public and ignorant local politicians have repeatedly tried to derail the successful and lawful Animal Birth Control Programme in the city and want to initiate a mass culling of dogs by means of lethal strycchnine injections and other brutal methods. Dr. Parvez Piran is the first official of the Health Department of the Bangalore City Corporation who has taken a constructive, hands-on approach, refused to entertain alarmists and rabble-rousers and made consistent attempts to engage, educate, counsel, organise and direct the management of street animals. His term is due to end in September. If he goes, all his good work will be undone, the programme will very likely collapse and advocates of animal welfare will be left without a leader. Not least of all, hundreds of thousands of innocent, sentient animals could be cruelly put to death.
