The Chittagong City Corporation (CCC) authorities have fixed 387 spots in the city for slaughtering sacrificial animals and urged the city dwellers to use the designated places to keep the city clean.
Mohammed Abul Hossain, secretary of Chittagong City Corporation told the Dhaka Tribune that they selected 387 slaughtering spots under 41 wards of the city in an effort to accelerate the cleaning work during Eid-ul-Azha this year.
“Besides, we will put up tarpaulins canopies in the slaughtering spots,” said the CCC secretary.
“We have set a target of cleaning all the sacrificial waste within a day. As part of the cleaning drive, we have canceled the vacation of the cleaning staff of the corporation. Around 5000 cleaning staff will work to keep the city clean on Eid and the day after Eid,” added the CCC secretary.
Vowing to go tough on unauthorized cattle markets, the CCC secretary said they would take tough measures against those who set up unauthorised cattle markets in the city.
The corporation authorities have already leased two permanent and six makeshift cattle markets in the city for Eid-ul-Azha.
With the two permanent markets in Sagarika and Bibirhat areas, the makeshift markets are located in the city’s Karnaphuli, Saltgola Rail Crossing, Steel Mill, Komol Mohajon Hat, Patenga City Corporation High School and Postarpar School areas.
