Manohar Parrikar the Chief Minister of Goa said on Tuesday that he is going to ensure that they don't face any shortage of beef.

Speaking in the Goa Assembly, he said, “We have not closed the option of getting meat from Belgaum (in Karnataka) or some other place to ensure that there is no shortage.” “I can assure the inspection of beef, coming from neighbouring states, will be done by proper doctors or those authorised for it,” he said.

Manohar Parrikar also said that around 2,000 kg of beef was slaughtered daily at the state's only legal abattoir, the Goa Meat Complex, at Ponda.

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

The Congress was quick to react to the Beef issue as Rajiv Shukla said that it was hilarious and ironic to see a BJP CM say there won't be "a shortage of beef in the state".
