The government of Sindh has not taken any decision on whether it would be permitting to set up the cattle markets on Eid or not.
It has released a notification in which it withdrew the permit to set up the cattle markest but that notification was directed for the regular markets, as was explained by Saeed Ghani, the Education Minister.
He told local media that the regular cattle markets are set up throughout the province two times a week. He informed that those markets have been closed as there was a surge in the coronavirus cases.
It created a confusion when that letter started making rounds about not allowing the cattle markets to set up. As per the letter, the local government department has told the home department that it is taking back the decision and is annulling the granted permission of setting up the cattle market on the Super Highway this year.
On the 2nd of June, the government had given permission to establish the market in Karachi and has asked people to abide by the SOPs and to take the preventive steps when they make visits to the market.
Saeed Ghani further explained that the government has not taken any decision on whether it would be allowing the cattle markets to be set up on this Eid or not. He said that they are considering allowing these markets with strict SOPs.
The home department would be drafting and presenting a list of the SOPs to the government for approval.
