Take similar steps to clean roadside garbage on a daily basis
Rawhide was not being bought and sold at prices fixed by the government, but the market situation was fairly good compared to last year.
Like previous years, the government has been approving applications of different companies seeking to export rawhide to create demand and enable better prices, said Tapan Kanti Ghosh, senior secretary to the commerce ministry, yesterday.
Fisheries and Livestock Minister SM Rezaul Karim says the government won’t allow import of sacrificial animals on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha.
Though the city corporations have designated 620 places in Dhaka South and 543 in Dhaka Northfor slaughtering sacrificial animals, the city-dwells slaughter their cattle on the streets in front of their respective houses, with bloods running down the streets.
Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sayeed Khokon today asked the concerned employees of the city corporation to remove the waste of sacrificial animals within 24 hours of the day of Eid-ul-Azha.
Supply of cattle is more than adequate to meet the Eid demand, but traders worry about transporting them to the capital and other big cities on time as many highways are in bad shape following the devastating flood.
