Mapusa: After the passing of the anti-cow slaughter Bill in the Karnataka assembly, Goa’s beef market has been somewhat hit by this act as there is lack of supply from Karnataka. In view of this, Mapusa beef vendors on Tuesday sought Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant’s intervention to ensure regular supply of beef from Karnataka to Goa.
Due to the lack of supply of beef from Karnataka, these vendors have been compelled to shut their shops since last week.  The vendors have informed that supply of beef has stopped after the government in Karnataka passed the Karnataka Prevention of Slaughter and Preservation of Cattle Bill (2020). “Nobody is ready to transport the meat or livestock because if anyone is found transporting them, they are slapped with fines ranging between Rs 5 lakh and Rs 10 lakh,” the vendors added.
With the wedding season here and Christmas and New Year knocking at the door, these are totally dependent on Karnataka for supply of beef since there is no meat stock or livestock available in Goa as the Goa Meat Complex lacks the required facilities.
The vendors sighed that hundreds will be left unemployed if their business continued to remain dampened due to the non-supply of beef. Maharashtra and Karnataka governments have banned beef which has directly affected the sales in Goa.
