THANE:  The Mayor of Mira Bhayander township, adjoining Mumbai, today said there would be no relaxation on the ban on sale of meat for the entire eight-day 'Paryushan', the period of fasting observed by the Jain community.

According to some media reports, the municipal commissioner had proposed that the sale of meat be banned only for two days.

Mayor Geeta Jain, who belongs to BJP, told PTI, "The commissioner has recommended a ban for two days, but we don't agree with it. Unless the state government directs us, there would be no change in the ban (for entire Paryushan)."
