NEW DELHI: Congress leader Manish Tiwari on Tuesday called the Maharashtra government's ban on meat, a sign of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s ‘fascist’ behaviour.

“The real question is whether the state has the right to transgress and intrude into personal choices. If this is not fascism, then what is?” asked Tiwari.

Tiwari also appealed to the secular groups of the country to come together and fight against the fascist attitude.

The Maharashtra Government has banned meat in Mumbai for four days, in view of the Jain festival of Paryushan.
