A BJP LEADER IN MEGHALAYA RESIGNED FROM PARTY IN PROTEST AGAINST CENTRE’s NEW RULE ON BANS OF CATTLE TRADE FOR SLAUGHTER :

A BJP leader in Meghalaya has resigned from the party in protest against the Centre’s new rule that bans cattle trade for slaughter. Bernard Marak, a leader from Garo hills, had created controversy earlier this week by promising cheap beef to people if the party came to power. Assembly elections in the hill state, where beef is staple, is due early next year.    “I have decided to quit the party because I am a Christian and Garo first,” Marak said today. “The BJP is hurting sentiments here on the beef issue. Tribal society has its own laws. The BJP is trying to push Hindutva.”
