Maharashtra: BJP, Shiv Sena oppose plan to build abattoir in Bhiwandi

BJP and Shiv Sena corporators opposed a proposal to construct an abattoir at a cost of Rs 20 crore in Bhiwandi in Maharashtra's Thane district.

A delegation of leaders from the BJP, Sena and other organisations on December 27 met Bhiwandi-Nizampur City Municipal Corporation Commissioner Manohar Hire and submitted a memorandum opposing the move.

Commissioner Hire assured the delegation that the issue would be kept in abeyance till consensus is reached among all parties on how to move forward.

Bhiwandi, a powerloom town, has been a communally sensitive area with an almost equal proportion of Hindus and Muslims.

In late 1983, plans by a private firm to construct an abattoir near Sawande village in the township were met with large scale protests, resulting in widespread rioting and arson.
