Chennai, May 31, 2017: DMK Working President M.K. Stalin on Wednesday said that the central government has to revoke its order banning sale and purchase of cattle to slaughter houses failing which another ‘Marina revolution’ would erupt in Tamil Nadu.
Leading the protest demonstration held by DMK in front of the city collectorate, Stalin said in the wake of the Madras High Court’s order on Tuesday, the central government should withdraw its order banning sale of cows and buffaloes for slaughter.
On Tuesday, the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court granted a four-week stay on central government’s notification on new cattle slaughter ban.
Citing the pro-Jallikattu protest held by the students and others here couple of months back at the Marina Beach here, Stalin said if the central government does not withdraw its order, then there will be another agitation on its pattern on this issue.
Stalin also questioned the silence of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K.Palaniswami on the issue while his counterparts of Kerala, Puducherry and Tripura have voiced their opposition to the central government’s rule on the cattle trade.
