There is only one cattle market in the entire city of Dhaka. It's situated in its northern part. But one cattle market is hardly enough for a city of nearly 20 million residents. There should be at least another cattle market in the southern part of the city.
Dhaka South City Corporation should take steps to set up a regular cattle market for those living in the area. This will not only be convenient for its residents but also curtail the monopoly of Gabtali's cattle traders.
