Bangladesh Meat Merchant Association (BMMA) on Friday urged authorities concerned to stop importing cows from neighbouring countries to protect the local farmers and tannery industry.

Leaders of BMMA made the demand at a press conference at Dhaka Reporters Unity auditorium, reports BSS. 

BMMA Acting Secretary General Rabiul Alam said many cows are coming from neighbouring countries ahead of the holy Eid-ul-Azha though currently there are around 11.5 million cows worthy to be slaughtered during the Eid in the country.

He urged the concerned authorities to control extortion in cattle markets and stop taking access taxes from the cattle traders.

BMMA’s Sohel Ahmed, Nabi Hossain, Shamim Ahmed and Hazi Anowar were present at the press conference, among others.
