The government has decided to set up cattle markets in different parts of the country, including the capital Dhaka, informed Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives (LGRD) Minister Md. Tajul Islam, saying, “In the case of Eid-ul-Azha, the issue of not setting up a cattle market is unrealistic. Besides selling animals online, cattle markets will be set up in different places in compliance with the hygiene rules.”
The National Technical Advisory Committee on coronavirus on Sunday recommended not setting up cattle markets in Chattogram, Gazipur and Narayanganj, including the capital, to control the virus infection situation. At this time, they recommended to set up cattle markets in other places but not in the city.
However, despite the recommendation of the advisory committee, the LGRD Minister informed about the decision to set up cattle markets on a limited-scale in different parts of the country, including Dhaka.
“I am encouraging people to trade cattle online. But even after that, the cattle markets that have to be opened must follow the hygiene rules,” he added.
