UDF, LDF raise voice against cow slaughter ban

In a rare convergence, Kerala’s ruling Congress-led UDF and CPI-M headed LDF opposition, at loggerheads on several issues, have come out against the NDA Government’s move to impose a nation-wide ban on cow slaughter and beef, dubbing it as an encroachment on personal liberty.

Some BJP leaders in Kerala, one of the largest beef consuming states in the country, have sought to justify the Narendra Modi Government’s move by citing environment and health grounds. Leaders of the Congress and the CPI (M) have come down heavily on the Centre on the issue, terming it as a “sign of increasing encroachment of personal liberty and democratic freedom”.
