While the BJP opposes the consumption of beef, Sanbor Shulai, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) minister in the Meghalaya government, is encouraging the people of the state to eat more beef than chicken, mutton and fish. Shulai, a senior BJP leader who was sworn in as a cabinet minister last week, said that in a democratic country, everyone is free to eat what they want. He can eat whatever he wants.

“I encourage people to eat more beef than chicken, mutton or fish,” he told reporters on Friday. Encouraging people to eat more beef will dispel the impression that the BJP will ban cow slaughter. Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Minister Shulai also assured that he will speak to Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma to ensure that cattle transport in Meghalaya is not affected by the new law on cows in the neighboring state.

Let us inform that a law has come in Assam to protect cattle, named Assam Cow Protection Bill, 2021. The purpose of this law is to ban the international export of cows through Assam to control the smuggling of cows into neighboring Bangladesh.

At the same time, on the complicated border dispute between Meghalaya and Assam, the three-time MLA Shulai said that it is high time that the state uses its police force to protect its border and its people. “If the people of Assam continue to harass our people in the border area, now is not the time to just talk and drink tea…we have to answer, we have to act on the spot,” he said. However, he said that he is not a supporter of violence.

He said that we should have the spirit to protect our people, we should use our force, Mizoram Police should go to the front to talk to Assam Police. Let us inform that in the past, there was a bloody clash between Assam and Mizoram police forces at Lailapur in Cachar district, in which five Assam Police personnel and a resident were killed while more than 50 others were injured. A case has been registered in connection with this matter at Dholai police station.
