Meghalaya’s Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma, settled to have a discussion with the neighbouring states to make certain that there is no disruption in the transportation of cattle to Meghalaya, with Assam mulling a law to protect cows.

“We will take up the issue with Assam’s Director General of Police (DGP) and Principal Secretary of Animal Husbandry & Veterinary to come up with a mechanism so cattle coming from other states can be transported to Meghalaya,” Principal Secretary of Animal Husbandry & Veterinary GHP Raju, said.

Assam’s plans to enact a cow protection law has raised concerns in neighbouring Meghalaya, which has a largely beef consuming population. In May, Assam governor Jagdish Mukhi announced the introduction of the legislation in the assembly session this month. The proposed law also envisages a complete ban on the transportation of cattle from other parts of the country.
