Guwahati: Meghalaya state BJP chief Ernest Mawri has made sensational comments where assembly elections are being held on 27th of this month. He said there is no restriction on eating beef in Meghalaya. Moreover, he revealed that he himself eats beef.
Ernest Maury, speaking to ANI, made these comments. “I will not make a statement on the resolutions introduced by other states, but we all have beef with Meghalaya. There are no restrictions on our food. Yes.. I eat beef too. There is no ban on beef in Meghalaya. Eating beef is part of the way of life of the people here. No one can stop it. There is no such rule in India. Some states have enacted certain laws. There are slaughterhouses in Meghalaya. Someone takes a cow or a pig and brings it to the market. It is very pure. That’s why people are used to eating it,” he explained.

BJP-ruled states like Assam have passed bills to regulate the sale, transport and slaughter of cattle. Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sharma, who is the BJP’s face in the North-Eastern states, has appealed to impose restrictions on eating beef in Hindu-dominant areas.
Mavri also denied the allegations of BJP being an anti-Christian party. It is claimed that there is no such thing and it is a bad propaganda by the rival parties. It has been nine years since NDA came to power in the country. Are there any records of churches being targeted and destroyed? These accusations are just political rivals. BJP is doing bad propaganda that it is anti-Christian only for the benefit of elections. Meghalaya is a predominantly Christian state. Everyone goes to church here,’ he said.
