Jammu: Taking cue from Uttar Pradesh, Shiv Sena has started a campaign in Jammu demanding closure of all alleged illegal meat shops in Jammu region.
Saffron organisations led by Shiv Sena and Dogra Front have begun talking to the traders and other organisations for starting a full-fledged agitation against the alleged illegal meat shops in Jammu region, which according to them is city of temples and home to several sacred temples of the country. According to the leaders of these organisations, illegal meat shops should have been banned several years ago but the same was not done for purely political reasons.
Jammu is a city of temples. All illegally operating meat shops should be closed without any further delay. We are not against the consumption of meat but we firmly believe, none should be allowed to run illegal meat shops in the city of temples, said State President of Shiv Sena Ashok Gupta while leading a protest.
