Hyderabad: Animal Husbandry Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav today said the prices and sale of mutton, chicken, and fish will be streamlined in a few days. There was a shortage in the supply of
these items due to the corona crisis and lockdown effect. As a result, the traders involved in selling them at high prices.
The minister chaired a high-level meeting on the non-vegetarian items being sold at high prices as there was more consumption of mutton, fish, and chicken in the city. He instructed the officials concerned to check the sale of mutton, chicken, and fish at higher prices. He said as Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao had announced to help farmers and other communities to get all help, the traders were warned of severe action for selling mutton and chicken at high prices. The free fish seed was distributed to villagers and the yield was likely to come in seven to 10 days.
The department officials were instructed to ensure that non-vegetarian food items are sold at normal prices. As per KCR directions, the officials were striving to ensure the availability of mutton, chicken, and fish.
