Thane: Raj Thackeray-led MNS protest against the temporary meat ban comes in a bizarre way.
The party workers had taken a meat ban to a new low. They gathered in front of the gate of the Jain community hall in Vishnu Nagar area in Thane, Mumbai where the festival was going on and displayed a garland of meat and also attempted to roast chicken.
MNS city Vice-President Ravi More, Mahesh Kadam, Ashish Doke, Raju Bagve and women party workers were in attendance during the protest.
MNS Chief Raj Thackeray on Thursday told Thane Mirror, the Jains cannot make a decision on the policies of the state and asserted his party’s support to those willing to sell meat in the state.
“The Jains will not decide what will happen in Maharashtra. Digamma Jains roam naked showing their body, if that is okay then why is this meat ban issued in the state,” asked Thackeray.
“The MNS will definitely support whoever wants to sell meat in the state. We won’t follow the meat ban issued by the government,” he told the media at a press conference.
