No more animal slaughter in unhygienic conditions: CM
Panaji: Goa Chief minister Manohar Parrikar today assured crackdown on illegal slaughter houses in the state, which are run in unhygienic conditions and also vowed to protect animal rights.
Parrikar said the state government will work out a mechanism to ensure that there is no cruelty to animals, which are taken up for butchering.
"We cannot stop slaughtering because there is a demand for meat. This is a very sensitive topic," he said.
The chief minister, however, said that the state government will discourage the practice of butchering animals anywhere in the state in unhygienic conditions.
He said that the slaughter houses run by the state government too were in dismal state.
The issue was raised on the floor of the House by BJP legislator Vishnu Surya Wagh, who demanded to stop cruelty animals.
