Mumbai: Thousands of people are likely to be a part of protest march on Tuesday against the ban on beef in Maharashtra.
The march will start from Deonar Abattoir and culminate at Azad Maidan, said Sarvashramik Sangh secretary Vijay Dalvi, one of the organisers of the march.
"The livelihood of over a million people directly or indirectly engaged in the beef trade and allied industry has been adversely affected by the ban on beef in the state," he said.
"This has hiked the prices of other non-vegetarian items like mutton, chicken and fish which, in turn, will lead to spiraling in the menu prices in restaurants and eateries," said Dalvi.
Besides the beef industry representatives, around 150 students of Tata Institute of Social Sciences, NGOs, leaders of the Congress, the Nationalist Congress Party, the Samajwadi Party and others are expected to join the march.
