Public slaughter of calf: Three YC activists suspended

Three Youth Congress activists were suspended in connection with the public butchering of a calf in Kannur district as part of a protest against the Centre’s ban on sale of cattle for slaughter.

YC Kannur district president Rijil Makkutty and activists Joshi Kandathil and Sharafuddin were suspended both from the YC and the Congress, party sources said.

The action came a day after party vice president Rahul Gandhi condemned the public slaughter of the animal.

Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee president M.M Hassan said that the action had dented the Youth Congress’ protest and the activists were suspended from the party.

“The public slaughter of the calf by the YC activists is against the Congress’ culture. The party condemns the incident,” Hassan told.
