Congress not opposing Assam cattle preservation bill: Ripun Bora

New Delhi, July 13 (ANI): Assam Congress chief Ripun Bora on July 13 said that the party is not opposing the new bill in the state that seeks to bar the sale of beef in areas predominantly inhabited by "Hindu, Jain, Sikh and other non-beef-eating communities or within a radius of 5 km of any temple" and noted that there should not be discrimination in name of religion. He said, "As far Congress is concerned, we are not opposing the new cattle bill. But we are demanding that there should not be discrimination. According to our constitution, everyone should be equal in the eye of the law. So why the sale of beef is prohibited within 5 km of Hindu, Sikh, Jain temples only?"
