Congress' ex-AG misguided HC on beef issue: BJP

 

The Bharatiya Janata Party has blamed former advocate general of the erstwhile Congress government for misguiding the court on the issue of beef.

He has also blamed the Congress for creating a communal divide on the issue of beef shortage.

Former AG Subodh Kantak is the lawyer of the petitioner – the Govansh Suraksha Manch - in the case of alleged illegal animal slaughter at the Goa Meat Complex.

The high court has presently prohibited animal slaughter of existing 130 animals at the GMC and bringing animals from Karnataka and Maharashtra since the animals were not certified to be fit for slaughter.

According to BJP spokesperson Dr Wilfred Mesquita, Adv Kantak did not inform the Bombay high court at Goa that a competent authority, as per section 4 of Animal Preservation Act 1995, has been certifying the animals.

“The system of certifying animals by the competent authority is being followed since 2001”, said Mesquita.

 

He also alleged that the Congress is now using the high court order to communalise the issue by simply painting the BJP black.

Dr Mesquita also assured that beef would be made available within few days.

The state is presently suffering with shortage of fresh beef as restrictions are imposed by the court on the GMC - the only legal animal slaughter house in Goa.

The GMC, on the other hand, is now planning to import legally slaughtered animals from other states than Karnataka and Maharashtra to overcome the shortage problem.
