Mutton dealers’ harassment in Punjab; Mehbooba writes to Badal

JAMMU, APRIL 29, 2016 – Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti, Friday took up the issue of harassment of J&K’s mutton traders and importers with the Chief Minister of Punjab, Prakash Singh Badal.
 Requesting Punjab Chief Minister to intervene in the matter, Mehbooba Mufti said certain persons near Madhopur, in Punjab, realize substantial amount of money from mutton dealers as special tax for transportation of livestock (sheep/goat), notwithstanding the fact that livestock are procured from neighbouring state of Rajasthan.
The Chief Minister requested Badal that since the mutton dealers are not getting support from Police, necessary instructions are issued to the concerned so that they are not harassed and no tax is charged from them for transportation of their livestock.
