Protest staged against order on cattle slaughter

Functionaries of various Leftist, Dalit and farmers’ organisations staged a dharna in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office here today seeking revocation of the May 23 central notification on cattle slaughter.

The protesters raised slogans against the Union government, accusing it of divesting the farming community as well as Dalits and minorities of their economic backbone and food habit. “The notification is part of the Centre’s hidden agenda of foisting a single culture over the country”, they said.

District leaders of CITU, KPRS, KRRS, DSS, and Tipu Secular Sena participated in the protest.
