JKNPP protests against MLA Rashid for hosting beef party

Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) on Saturday staged a protest over independent legislator Engineer Rashid hosting a beef party at the MLA hostel on Thursday.

The protestors raised slogans against MLA Rashid and demanded his arrest.

Earlier, on Friday, three districts of Jammu observed a complete shutdown, a day after three cow carcasses were found in the Chenani area of Udhampur District.

The Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) did not support the Jammu shutdown call.

However, several organisations, including, Shiv Sena Bala Sahib, Yuva Rajput Sabha, Shri Ram Sena, All Party Hindu Coordination Committee, Jammu West Assembly Movement, Dogra Sadar Sabha, Jammu Lawyer’s Forum and others extended support to the shutdown. (ANI)
