Control on selling meat in Maungdaw

Maungdaw, Arakan State: The concerned authority of Maungdaw pushed the sole agent of butchery- Maung Maung Sein, a Rohingya community – to make difficult to sell meat in the village. The agent with police personnel arrested four Rohingyas from Ward number 5 yesterday and sent to the police station for slaughtering animals, said a villager from Ward number 5.

Similarly, the agent, Maung Maung Sein went to Pandawpin (Nawbolna) village where the butchers ran away when they saw police with agent was coming. The agent and police personnel seized all the remaining meat and arrested two persons who are sitting near a shop, said a villager.

The agent asked to butchers to pay him 50,000 kyat where he collected only 20,000 kyat before to sell meat at the villages. The butcher from Nyung Chaung village refused yesterday to sell meat with high price to the agent. So, the villagers were not able to get meat for their first day of Ramadan (fasting) month.

It is also one kind of plan from authority to drive Rohingya for their struggle to survive and hoping will leave  from their homeland to Bangladesh while  getting difficult to survive.
