We have made all arrangements for selling animals through online. At the same time, measures will be taken to ensure that online as well as physical animal markets are conducted in accordance with proper hygiene rules. On behalf of the ministry, a massive campaign is already being carried out on TV to make people aware. How to come to the market and buy animals, the guidelines have been provided. He said, 'The biggest religious festival of Muslims is Eid-ul-Azha. Due to human emotions, it is not possible to avoid them due to various disasters and famines including Corona.
Last year, even during the corona crisis, animal markets were held. The rate of corona infection is very high this year. Despite this, animals will be bought and sold in the animal market. All activities will be conducted by the government in coordination with other ministries so that the sacrifice can be done as smoothly as possible.
Regarding animal buying and selling guidelines, Tajul Islam said, 'Guidelines have been formulated on how to buy and sell animals. How the sacrificial waste is to be disposed of is also mentioned. Online as well as physical animal haat will be set up by maintaining social distance. Cattle stalls shall not be set up in places which obstruct the movement of vehicles on the road.
Participation of public representatives in all matters is essential. If the Member-Chairman of the Union Parishad fulfills all the duties of his village, then it is possible to carry out the work properly and all instructions will be given to him by the Government. The city corporation councilors will also supervise the cow markets. If they work on them, hopefully it will be possible to complete the sacrifice beautifully.
