1.21 crore sacrificial animals available this year: minister
Bangladesh has 1.21 crore sacrificial animals available this year for the Eid-ul-Azha, Fisheries and Livestock Minister SM Rezaul Karim said today.
Last year, the number was hovering around 1.19 crore.
The country has enough cattle to sacrifice this Eid-ul-Azha and there will be no crisis of the animals this year, the minister said.
The minister spoke at an inter-ministerial meeting which was organised to determine the demand, supply of sacrificial animals and ensure their safe transportation during Eid-ul-Azha, at the livestock ministry's conference room in the capital's Farmgate today.
