In Gurugram, Over 500 meat and chicken shops were allegedly shut down by Shiv Sena workers in view of the Navratri festival here. The workers yesterday assembled at Palam Vihar and forced shut down of meat markets in Surat Nagar, Ashok Vihar, Sector 5 and 9, Pataudi Chowk, Jacobpura, Sadar Bazaar, Khandsa Anaj Mandi, bus stand, DLF area, Sohna and Sector 14 market.
General secretary and spokesperson of Shiv Sena Gurgaon wing Ritu Raj said that they had served notices to every meat and chicken shop.
“This time we have not served notices to restaurants and other food chains which serve chicken as it is not seen openly. One will have to face consequences in case he does not follow instructions,” he said.
The sainiks also served notices to owners of non- vegetarian food outlets, asking them to close down their shops till the nine-day Navratra festival is over
