Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday said that he will ensure that there is no shortage of beef in the state.
Parrikar, while addressing the state assembly, said that if there is shortage of beef in Goa, he will import beef from the neighbouring states.
"I haven't closed option of getting beef from Belgaum or some other place to ensure there is no shortage of beef," Parrikar said.
"Can assure inspection of beef, coming from neighbouring state, will be done by proper doctors or those authorised for it," he added.
Last week, Union Minister Ramdas Athawale said everybody has the right to eat beef.
Earlier week, a 40-year-old man was reportedly thrashed by four men in Nagpur's Bharsingi area on the suspicion of carrying cow meat.
