(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The Sharjah Municipality launched a campaign on Monday to intensify inspections on livestock to ensure they are abiding by the municipality regulation and organise the selling of the animals for Eid Al Adha.
During the campaign, the inspectors will spread awareness about the hygienic conditions of slaughtering and authorised areas for slaughtering.
The campaign is part of the collaborated effort of the municipality, the Ministry of Economy and the Sharjah Police to monitor the animal prices, so as not tp allow traders to exploit the occasion.
Riyad Al Allian, Deputy Director of the municipality, said the municipality is making great efforts to control the market during Eid days. They inspection section is all set to keep a tab on any public health violation and would not tolerate those who slaughter animals in places other than the municipality's abattoirs.
He also stressed that the municipality will hold meetings with animal traders to learn about the latter's issues and to address them in order to facilitate their business.
The municipality has already allocated 52 stalls in Al Jubal area for animal traders who don't have stalls in the animal market to carry out their business. This would also make it easier for the municipality to control the trade and ensure the animals are healthy for consumers.
