Haryana's Health and Sports Minister Anil Vij has said that the people who cannot live without eating beef should not visit the state where stringent cow protection laws are in place.
"There are some countries we don't visit because food and drinking habits there don't suit us. Likewise, those people who can't live without eating beef should not come to Haryana)," Vij told reporters on Tuesday, when asked if the state would issue special permits to foreigners to consume beef in the state.
Vij said Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had clarified the issue and ruled out any plan to issue such licences and give relaxation to foreigners to consume beef in the state.
