Goa MP and Union AYUSH minister Shripad Naik today admitted that there is “certain anxiety” among the people on the issue of beef ban. “There is certain anxiety among the people. Some people have come forward with it (to express it),” Naik said while speaking to reporters at a press conference here. It is for the state governments to decide on the beef issue, he added.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra, who was also present at the press conference, refused to comment when asked about apprehensions surrounding beef ban and cow vigilantism.

“I have come here with the mandate to speak about Narendra Modi government’s achievements in the past three years. I will not trespass beyond my mandate,” Patra said.

Asked about a Rajasthan High Court judge’s comments on importance of cow, Patra said he won’t talk about the court.

While incidents of `Go-rakshaks’ indulging in violence have been reported from several parts of the country, the issue of beef ban came to fore once again recently with Centre’s ban on sale of cattle for slaughter at animal markets.
