Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami today informed the Assembly that court rulings on the Centre’s ban on cattle sale for slaughter at animal markets would be followed and declined to accept the opposition demand to pass a resolution against the new rules.
Responding to DMK leader M K Stalin’s demand for a resolution opposing the Centre’s new curbs on cattle trade, he said majority public opinion would be taken into consideration in this regard and declined to accept the opposition demand.
Stating that the Supreme Court and High Courts are seized of the issue, the Chief Minister said the government would implement the court rulings on the matter.
Palaniswami pointed out that a ban on cow slaughter is in force for the past 40 years in Tamil Nadu.
