The should focus more on providing employment to youth and ensuring livelihood for farmers and the poor instead of "meddling" in the personal habits of diverse people, the CPI(M) said today.

The Left party's latest attack on the BJP-led central comes a day after the Assembly passed a resolution opposing the Centre's recent notification banning trade of cattle n animal market for slaughter.

"Clear message from states: Kerala, to Mizoram. mustn't be in the business of meddling with personal habits of a diverse people (sic)," CPI(M) general secretary tweeted.

He added, "Young is crying for jobs, farmers and labour for livelihood. gives vigilantes a free pass, so cows and beef remain the focus (sic)."

The Assembly had yesterday unanimously passed a resolution opposing the Centre's notification relating to cattle trade.

The Assembly demanded withdrawal of the notification, contending it would "impact the economy of the state and the food habit of its people".

Cutting across political lines, the assembly members supported the resolution tabled by Chief Minister Mukul Sangma.
