Carcass Meat Issue: Clash Erupts Between Congress & Police On Thursday


Kolkata: The busting issue of a racket in selling carcass meat has now triggered a clash between the Congress workers and police here on Friday as the party staged a protest over this rotten meat supply racket.

As per agency report “Rotten meat market is thriving here, this kind of crime cannot take place without collusion with the ruling regime,” West Bengal Congress chief A.R. Chowdhury said.

Yesterday, the West Bengal unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) staged a protest after the racket was busted by the police in the state capital.

The party condemned the ruling Trinamool Congress, saying that the state machinery was involved in the racket.

Earlier in the week, the state government had seized 20 tonnes of rotten meat, suspected of dead animals and sourced from dumping grounds, meant to be supplied to eateries and departmental stores in the state as well as neighbouring Jharkhand, Odisha, and Bihar.
