Thrissur: SFI activists conducted protest against Centre's notification banning cattle sale for slaughter in as many as 200 different places in the district by serving beef among themselves and to the public. A march was taken out on Saturday morning in Thrissur from the area committee office of CPM adjacent to Azhikodan Smarakam on MG Road which passed through Swaraj Round before concluding at the corporation office. Students from colleges in Thrissur town and surrounding took part in the protest march.

District secretary of SFI, K. S. Rosalraj said at the protest meeting in front of the corporation office that campaign would be launched in colleges by SFI units  against the move of the BJP government to intervene in the basic right of the people in choosing food they like. It is a consorted move by the BJP-led government to destroy the diversity of India and such a ban on cattle trade for slaughtering would not have any effect in secular Kerala, he added. Loaves of bread along with beef curry were  served to hundreds by the activists who protested against the ban.
