“We are selling meat in Dadar area along with Shiv Sena workers, when police suddenly came there and started pushing and shoving us, later they detained us. But we will continue our agitation against the ban till the government and the civic body revoke the order.”He further also said that the party would set up meat stalls on all four days of the ban. On Wednesday, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray said his party would ensure that there was no ban on the sale of meat. While the BJP defended the ban, the opposition party Congress and the NCP alleged that the move was a BJP ploy to polarize voters and appease a section of society before the crucial MCGM polls in early 2017. Meanwhile, the Bombay High Court will hear the plea of the mutton traders on Friday. They say that the four-day ban on slaughter and sale of meat in Mumbai discriminates against their right to a livelihood.
