2,000 kg of beef slaughtered daily in Goa, Manohar Parrikar says assuring adequate supply

Goa Meat Complex

New Delhi:
Chief Minister of Goa Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday said that 2000 kgs of beef is slaughtered every day in the state and assured that adequate supply to meet the local need will be maintained at any cost.

Around 2,000 kg of beef is slaughtered daily at the state's only legal abattoir, the Goa Meat Complex, at Ponda, around 40 km from state capital Panaji, Parrikar said in the state assembly responding to a question by a ruling BJP lawmaker, Nilesh Cabral.

He said to avoid beef shortage in the state, his government had kept open the option of importing it from Karnataka.

"The rest (of the beef demand) is met by Karnataka," said the Chief Minister, adding, "The government does not have any intention to restrict bringing animals for slaughter at the Goa Meat Complex from the neighbouring state."

Amid mob violence in many states over beef and at a time the Centre's restrictions on cattle trade for slaughter have raised protests in the south and northeast, Parrikar's comments were mocked by the Congress.

"BJP CM of Goa saying there won't be shortage of beef in the state. This is hilarious and ironical," Congress leader Rajiv Shukla told the news agency ANI.
