Kerala Chief Minister Com. Pinarayi Vijayan has stated that the state government will not implement the ban on cattle slaughter ordered by the central government. He stated :”The state government will give all facilities to the people to have food of their choice”. He added ” There is no need for Keralites to learn it from anybody in Delhi or Nagpur”. Nagpur is the HQ of RSS.
One is remembered of the bold decision taken by EMS Government in connection with the 19th September 1968 strike of the Central Government employees. When the Indira Government promulgated Essential Service Maintenance Ordinance (ESMO) against the strike, Kerala Chief Minister Com. EMS Namboodiripad announced that he will not implement it in Kerala, despite the threat of the ministry being dismissed.
The Left Democratic Front Government in Kerala was always with the people and their interests.
