Eid-ul-Azha: Sindh govt allows establishment of cattle markets

KARACHI: (HRNW) The Sindh government gave the go-ahead to allow cattle markets to be set up across the province, under strict compliance of COVID-19 SOPs.

The decision was taken by Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah after he chaired an important meeting pertaining to the establishment of cattle markets before Eid-ul-Azha.

The chief minister’s spokesperson said that the provincial government will ensure that organisers of the markets strictly adhere to the SOPs which will be issued by the provincial government.

CM Murad urged masses not to unnecessarily go to animal markets and directed the deputy commissioners to ensure people do not operate markets in streets and alleys. He said that children will not be allowed to go to the markets, in a bid to protect them from the coronavirus.

The chief minister directed authorities to allocate specific places where animals can be sacrificed. “If animals are slaughtered in streets everywhere, this will lead to the spread of diseases,” he said, directing authorities to establish designated places at the Union Council level.
