Chicken mela organised to dispel Covid-19 rumours
Hyderbad: With sales of eggs and chicken badly affected by rumours that consuming them would cause Covid-19 infection, the Telangana Poultry Breeders Association and Telangana Poultry Federation along with National Egg Coordination Comm-ittee, organised a chicken and egg mela to dispel those fears at People's Plaza, Hyderabad on Friday.
The event that saw an estimated 20,000 people eat egg and chicken preparations was inaugurated by minister K.T. Rama Rao. 'Coronavirus and chicken are not connected. My family and I, and even Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao are eating chicken and eggs every day,' he said at the event.
