Shillong: Hynniewtrep United Awakening Movement Central Movement today called
on the Syiem Mylliem to seek a report on Cattle Market at Khanapara.
HUAM President, bah Gillbert Kharraswai informed that for six months consumers
were sold beef which is not tested. Unlike before, the Khanapara Cattles today has
no marks whatsoever to identify they are safe for consumption.
HUAM North Khasi Hills District (Ribhoi District) also seek report on how this market
is managed now and whether there are terms and conditions laid down by the Hima
for Cattle sellers renting the area. It also alleged that proper rules and guidelines
which were in place earlier is now no longer followed now. The most shocking thing
found is that 95% of the labourers in this market are outsiders.
Thus, the organisation vowed to be vigilant and no cattle shall be entertained without
having identification marks. Further, it will see also that the market day will be only
once a week plus three concurrent days to transport them.
