Mumbai's Mira Road-Bhayandar civic body bans sale of meat during Jain fast, politicos react

New Delhi, Sept 08 (ANI): After a widely criticized beef ban in Maharashtra, residents in a part of the state will not get any meat for eight days. The slaughter and sale of meat has been temporarily banned in those areas because of a Jain festival starting later this week.

Political reactions flowed in on Tuesday over the issue. Congress leader Manish Tiwari on Tuesday called the Maharashtra government's ban on meat, a sign of the Bharatiya Janata Party's 'fascist' behaviour.
