Selling chicken, milk from same parlour will hurt religious sentiments: BJP MLA

This is hurting the religious sentiment of people. We request the government to look into it. Milk parlours and chicken parlour should be given to two different traders and shops should be opened at some distance from each other,” BJP MLA Rameshwar Sharma told ANI.The state government has started the project to increase the earnings of women from tribal society. The pilot project has been opened in Bhopal's Vaishali Nagar.
