HUBBALLI: Chicken and mutton must be sold at a fixed rate without making a burden on customers during lockdown, said Dr Suresh Itnal, Hubballi-Dharwad Municipal Corporation Commissioner.
He said this while addressing a meeting of meat vendors held at the Office of the HDMC Commissioner in the City today.
Meat should be sold at the same rate which was fixed before lockdown. No one should fix prices as per his wish. Mutton should be sold at Rs 600 per kg and chicken at Rs 160 to Rs 180 per kg. A rate board should be fixed in front of every shop. Social distancing must be maintained at every shop during the trading, he said.
The government has allowed the sale of chicken, mutton and fish. Coronavirus has nothing to do with meat consumption. Meat sellers must do business while maintaining cleanliness. Special garbage collection tippers will be sent to meat shops for garbage collection, he added.
If anybody found selling meat for more than fixed price, then call on 0836-2213888; said Commissioner Suresh Itnal.
Assistant Commissioner Aziz Desai, Medical Officer Dr. Prabhu N. Biradar and Veterinary Surgeon Dr. Salimath were also present.
