KARACHI: Administrator of Asia’s biggest cattle market at Sohrab Goth, Irshad Ahmed said on Wednesday that we have started arrangements and initial works for setting up Asia’s biggest cattle market at Sohrab Goth.
He said that it is a part of our religion as people purchase sacrificial animals to perform the Sunnah.
The administrator said that they are aware that millions of people will be coming to the mandi to buy animals and they have to facilitate them which is why a number of facilities have been established at the mandi so that people can easily shop around without any sort of hassle.
He said heavy machineries and tractors are being utilised for setting up a smooth and clean place. He further said that we are committed to facilitate the citizens with best services this year in purchasing sacrificial animals for Eid-ul-Azha.
He said that we will also coordinate with other governments and private institutions to serve the people in a more systematic way.
The mandi will be established at 1200 acres of land and its planning has been finalised; work is underway for the necessary facilities including financial, security arrangements and lighting.
