South Delhi’s mayor, said in a report that, ” we will strictly close all meat shops. When meat is not sold people will not eat it.”He further added saying, “we have taken this decision keeping in mind the sentiments of Delhiites. The people complained to me. The fasting people were facing problems over the cutting of meat in the open. This is not a violation of anyone’s personal liberty. “
The statement of the Mayor was highly critized by many, including TMC MP, Mohua Moitra. She tweeted that she herself lives in South Delhi and can eat and sell meat whenever one likes and it goes against the constitution of India to stop one from doing so.
