Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Md Atiqul Islam said ‘DNCC Digital Hat-2021’ has been initiated with a view to preventing the spread of coronavirus.
“The North City Corporation under its own management will make arrangements to slaughter 1,000 sacrificial animals during Eid-ul-Azha…. Meat of those cattle will be sent to respective owners by 25 freezer vans,” he said while inspecting Airport Road and Dakshin Khan areas in the city, said a press release.
Leather of those sacrificial animals will be given to an NGO named ‘Manab Seba’ (Human Services) in order to help underprivileged people, the mayor said.
People who will buy cows online do not have to pay any extra money to the city corporation, the mayor said, adding “Buyers can buy cattle seeing the animals on live.”
