LDF Protest Against Ban on Sale of Cattle for Slaughter

23 June 2017

INDIA - Ruling Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI-M) led the Left Democratic Front (LDF) in Kerala, staging protest marches across the state against the Centre's notification banning sale and purchase of cattle for slaughter in animal markets.

According to DNA India, CPI(M) State secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan inaugurated the Raj Bhavan march of LDF workers in Kerala.

Speaking on the occasion, he said the state government would come out with a legislation if the Centre does not make amendments in the notification.

Mr Balakrishnan alleged that the cattle sale ban was part of the 'imposition' of the Sangh Parivar agenda in the country. (The Sangh Parivar refers to the family of Hindu nationalist organisations).

It was also an attempt to hand over sale of meat to corporates in the country, he charged.

The lives of lakhs (hundred thousands) of people depending on cattle and slaughterhouses would be adversely affected, he added.

LDF activists staged protest marches to Central government officers in district headquarters.
