Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) has fixed 11 spots to set up makeshift cattle markets ahead of Eid-ul-Azha.
The DSCC authorities took the decision on Sunday, said a press release signed by Md Abu Naser, DSCC public relations officer.
The spots are Uttar Shahjahanpur Moitri Songho grounds, Hazaribag Leather Technology College grounds, Postogola Shoshan terminal, Kamalapur Little Friends Club and Aftabnagar market, Meradia Bazar, Dania College grounds, Dupkhola Math, open places adjoining Dholaikhal Truck Terminal, Amulia Model Town and Rahmatganj sports grounds.
This time, cattle markets will be set up in open areas under supervision of the city corporations to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
Home minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Sunday said they are ready to monitor the cattle market but awareness among the mass people will be much more effective.
