BJP MLA Michael Lobo, raised the issue of beef-shortage in the ongoing Monsoon session of the assembly, saying, " Some so called cow protectors are standing at the state border and blocking entry for beef being brought to Goa. Goa meat complex is shut. We've failed on this front. There are many meat eaters in Goa. Tourists come here to eat beef."

He urged that if the crisis is not addressed by the government then certified cattle in Goa should be slaughtered at government meat complex.

"Some people may not like the way I am talking. If we do not want beef to come from Karnataka & Maharashtra, then certified cattle in Goa should be slaughtered at govt meat complex. It has to start," Lobo suggested.

Taking into view attacks by 'gau rakshaks' in the name of cow protection. LObo asked the concerned minister when Goa meat complex will start.

"I want the minister to tell me when Goa meat complex will start & whether there will be an interference from so called 'gau rakshaks'. I respect them but there are people in Goa in large numbers who eat beef. You cannot stop that, Lobo said.
