GUWAHATI, June 24 - The Greater Guwahati Qureshi Meat Association has alleged that the slaughterhouse operated by NEC Food Processing Pvt Ltd often supplies poor quality mutton due to which the retailers have to face the wrath of customers.

Besides, the procedure of procuring meat from the slaughterhouse is complicated, causing severe inconvenience to the meat traders, the association said.

The Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) had directed around 200 meat traders under the association to source meat from the NEC slaughterhouse at Sixmile following a directive from the Gauhati High Court.

�The slaughterhouse has been forcing the traders to sell poor quality meat. Moreover, the rules of the slaughterhouse are tricky. It charges Rs 125 per goat. The traders are not allowed to be present when the goats are slaughtered, and thus there is every possibility of an interchange. The mutton is given to the traders after eight hours. That is why the traders cannot supply fresh meat to the consumers,� the association said in a release.

Stating that the rules of the slaughterhouse have caused immense inconvenience to the traders, the association president Muslim Ali and secretary Maqbul Ahmed said that if the situation does not changes, many traders would be forced to stop their business.

�Several rounds of discussions have taken place with the GMC, NEC Food Processing Pvt Ltd and Assam Livestock and Poultry Development Corporation, but nothing has changed. The slaughterhouse often supplies old goats. When customers buy such meat, they vent their ire on us,� the association stated.

The meat association demanded that the GMC put up boards displaying NEC�s phone number in front of the retail shops so that complaints can be made directly to them. The association also alleged that the GMC has not renewed the licenses of the meat sellers for the last three months.
