Eating mutton and beef on Eid has become the dream of daily wagers, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Monday.
As Eid is around the corner, the prices of mutton and beef increased by up to Rs600.
According to the official rate, the price of a mutton has been fixed at Rs1200 per kg, but is being sold for Rs1800 per kg in the market.
On the other hand, beef was sold at Rs750 to 900 per kg instead of Rs600.
While the administration is absent, it is allowing citizens to rely on the mercy of the shopkeepers.
Shortly, before the Eid celebrations, the citizens complained about the exorbitant rise in prices of mutton and beef and asked the government to control the increased prices so that the common man could eat meat on Eid.
The butchers said that it was impossible to sell healthy goat meat for less than Rs1,800.
