Danggo by criticising centre’s decision said government is trying to suppress the tribal and other communities who consume beef.

“More people are expected to resign from the party in the coming days, especially in the Garo Hills, for their anti-party activities,” state BJP General Secretary Bashailang Khongwir told news agency PTI.

Two senior leaders of BJP in Meghalaya, Bachu Marak and Bernard Marak, have also resigned from their post.

Earlier, BJP vice president John Antonius Lyngdoh said majority of party leaders are against the new rules on cattle trade which are affecting people of the state.

By adding further he asserted that we cannot accept the new rules on cattle trade and won’t go against our food habits; besides, the economic interests of people dealing in cattle trade and slaughter are put in jeopardy.

With the new rules on cruelty towards animals,  the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government has racked up controversy across the country which it should look after it for future perspective and harmony among the people as number of protests against it are being observed in several states.
