Rijiju was quoting saying: "I eat beef. I am from Arunachal Pradesh. Can somebody stop me."

Rijiju further added that states having a Hindu majority could enact the legislation relating to banning of cow slaughter but it could not be imposed in the Northeastern states where majority of the people eat beef.

He said that the cultures, traditions, habits and sentiments of all the people in the country should be respected and honoured.
