A Correspondent :
As holy Eid-ul-Azha is approaching, the Chittagong district administration has decided to strengthen its vigilance in order to control the law and order situation and curb extortion in the cattle markets of the district.  
The decision was made at a meeting of Chittagong district law and order committee held on Friday at Chittagong deputy commissioner's the office.
DC of Chittagong Mohammed Zillur Rahman Chowdhury said in the meeting that the administration had to ensure a sound law and order situation and control extortion in the cattle markets. The meeting was also attended by high officials including the representatives of law enforcers.
Mohammed Zillur Rahman Chowdhury also said that no illegal cattle market could be setup in the district.  The Chittagong DC has already given directives to the concerned authorities to ensure the arrangement of temporary cattle markets and good management of the said markets. He said, "We have to make sure that no sick animal are brought to the cattle markets during the upcoming holy Eid-ul-Azha.
We also have to keep the law and order situation under control so that no anomaly can take place in the cattle markets this year."
According to sources, there might be a demand of more than six lakh sacrificial animals in the district in the upcoming Eid. The district livestock department and Chittagong district administration informed that a total 5 lakh and 91 thousand cattle are likely to be sacrificed in the district this Eid-ul-Azha. The authorities concerned are making necessary arrangements to setup temporary haats and provide other logistic supports.
Sources have said the district administration is going to arrange a total of 250 cattle markets in the district. The number of approved cattle markets for selling cattle was 240 in last year while there were several hundred illegal cattle markets in city and rural arrears in Chittagong. According to the sources in district administration, the Chittagong dwellers sacrificed a total of 5 lakhs and 40- thousands cattle in last year for Eid Ul Ajha.
But, the administration hoped that in the current year the number of sacrificed cattle will be more at least 10 percent of the last year.
 Locals presume that alongside the approved 250 haats several hundred illegal cattle markets might be setup in the district as well.  
District livestock officer Reajul Haque said the number of sacrificial cattle will be more than 5 lakh and 91 thousand in the upcoming Eid-ul-Ajha. We hope the demand for sacrificial animals will increase by at least 10 percent this year from that of the previous year."
"We have sent a letter to the concerned authority including the Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Science University to provide 80 physicians in the cattle markets. We want to make sure that the cattle brought to the markets are free from disease,' he added.
