Staff Reporter :
With few days ahead of Eid-ul-Adha, the second biggest religious festival of the Muslims, sacrificial animals have started arriving in the city by trucks and boats from different parts of the country on Sunday.
Ten cattle markets of the city are ready to start selling cattle from today by respecting all kinds of health guidelines.
Some buyers from the city's different areas have started choosing sacrificial animals for buying.
However, there are not many customers in the cattle market due to coronavirus fear.
Visiting different cattle markets in the city, it was found that structures for keeping the cattle are being prepared.
Apart from the Hazaribagh and Gabtoli cattle markets, the traders are taking position in the market in compliance with the orders and prohibitions of the market authorities and hygiene rules. Mike is being used to openly declare that none has access to visit market without a mask, using hand sanitizers and hand gloves. The monitoring team is working to monitor these matters. If there is any problem in the animal, the veterinarians are giving necessary advice.
This picture was seen while going to the market on Sunday afternoon.
In the past, people were very familiar with cattle market. But the situation has changed this year due to the outbreak of the corona pandemic, traders said.
Karim Bepari came to Hazaribagh cattle market with 10 cows from Kushtia, said; there is no business for four months in the rural cattle market. Peoples do not have lot of money; they have lost their earnings due to corona attack. So, I came to Dhaka because a lot of rich people live here. They will have to make sacrifices.
Another trader Abdul Quader from Shahjadpur in Sirajganj said, he came to Hazaribagh cattle market with 15 bulls.
The sacrificial cattle market does not look good to him across the country. Even then, they have come to Dhaka with 15 cows since they are cattle traders.
Meanwhile, Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) and Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) have decided to allow only 10 makeshift cattle markets in Dhaka city ahead of Eid-ul-Azha.
The markets had taken up open areas of the city corporations in order to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission.
Monitoring teams formed to observe health related issues at Dhaka cattle markets
Fisheries and Livestock Minister SM Rezaul Karim said, veterinary medical teams will work in the cattle markets ahead of Eid-ul-Azha aiming to prevent sick cattle from entering the market amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The minister said, "The Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock will ensure that no sick or unsuitable sacrificial cattle are sold. We have veterinary medical teams. They will monitor it. Medical teams will work in the cattle markets so that sick animals cannot come to the markets."
The Fisheries and Livestock Ministry on Sunday formed eight monitoring teams to observe the activities of veterinary medical teams and other health guidelines in all cattle markets of two Dhaka city corporations before Eid-ul-Azha.
A deputy secretary has been included in each of the teams, a press release of the ministry said today.
