Manna Bepari, the president of the Qureshi Meat Traders Association of Goa, while talking to ANI, said that the import of beef from the neighbouring states of Goa is getting hampered and so, they are suffering a huge loss but will call off the strike only when the state government will provide them complete assurance of safety.
"We used to bring meat legally from the neighbouring states and if the state government would support us then we will continue doing that. We demanded police protection from the government for selling beef in the state. Even after bringing it legally, the NGO's were accusing us falsely", Bepari said.
