NEW DELHI, June 13 - The Government should focus more on providing employment to the youth and ensuring livelihood for farmers and the poor instead of �meddling� in the personal habits of diverse people, the CPI (M) said today.
The Left party�s latest attack on the BJP-led Central Government comes a day after the Meghalaya Assembly passed a resolution opposing the Centre�s recent notification banning trade of cattle n animal market for slaughter.
�Clear message from States: Kerala, Meghalaya to Mizoram. BJP mustn�t be in the business of meddling with personal habits of a diverse people,� CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury tweeted.
He added, �Young India is crying for jobs, farmers and labour for livelihood. BJP gives vigilantes a free pass, so cows and beef remain the focus.�
The Meghalaya Assembly had yesterday unanimously passed a resolution opposing the Centre�s notification relating to cattle trade.
The Assembly demanded withdrawal of the notification, contending it would �impact the economy of the state and the food habit of its people�.
Cutting across political lines, the assembly members supported the resolution tabled by Chief Minister Mukul Sangma. � PTI
