Can meat be really transported by long distance trains?Am a vegetarian and am hence not able to understand what this fuss is all about. However, the larger issue is: can meat be transported all the way from Rajasthan? Why is that allowed to happen, when we have enough of livestock in Tamil Nadu itself?
A very big consignment of meat was seized at Chennai Central. The butchered animals were packed and sent all the way from Rajasthan. There were huge doubts that the meat was actually dog meat and not the traditional meat of goat/sheep. The tests followed and it was proved that the stuff was actually goat/sheep meat only.
Is it possible to transport meat in good condition by train, for 36 hours or more? What is the legal position? If yes, would the meat withstand the travel by train? Why should it come all the way from Rajasthan?
Obviously, the cost will be very high. When the local stuff seems to be very much available, why should it come all the way from Rajasthan? Members, who are non-vegetarian and know the actual position, may please clarify.
