The effect of the second wave of corona virus is visible on the goat mandis of Delhi NCR on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha. The human being of the common people has decreased in the lockdown, while the cost of bringing goats from far-flung areas to Delhi has increased due to inflation, especially the rising prices of petrol and diesel. Talking about goats, it has become costlier by 50 percent compared to last year.
The Delhi government is taking strict measures to prevent a possible third wave of the epidemic. In many areas of Delhi, Mandia is not working like last year. This time the animals have come even less, and are expensive. Bakrid will be celebrated tomorrow on Wednesday. On that day Muslims sacrifice goats, ducks and other animals.
According to media reports, Ashu of Bareilly, who came to the roadside market in Seelampur, said that the administration is strict regarding the markets, so we have sold goats cheaply. We have suffered a loss. Already in the lockdown, our meat shop was closed for several months, due to which we had a lot of financial trouble, thought that selling goats would make some money, but it also made a loss.
Many customers who have come to the mandis say that goat is about 50 percent more expensive than last year. They say that they were assuming that if economic activities have come down due to the lockdown, then the prices of animals will be low.
Rizwan, who came to the goat market in Jafarabad with 75 goats from Atroli, located near Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh, said that we buy goats from the villagers, but this time the villagers have given us expensive goats and after that the price of petrol and diesel. With the increase, the cost of bringing the goats from the village to Delhi has increased. Due to the stoppage of economic activities due to the lockdown, the work of many people has ended, due to which they are selling goats.
