According to an article in the TOI, Mukherjee has been advised to either take of his specs and keep it in the pocket or to wear contact lenses when he visits the city next week because the monkeys here are known to have a strange fascination for specs.
Some visitors even recall when their spectacles were snatched the monkeys actually wore them and posed for the cameras before breaking the glasses.
Fed up with the monkey menace, the districts administration has deployed ten langoors to keep the monkeys away during Mukherjee's visit.
The President will visit Mathura-Vrindavan and will lay the foundation stone for the world's tallest Chandrodaya temple. He will also be visiting the Banke Bihari temple.
Security has been stepped up and additional CCTV cameras have been installed ahead of Mukherjee's visit.
