In cases where the BJP successfully secured power in such states, BJP governments have ensured that the population finds no trouble in consumption of cow meat.

The criticism comes after Parrikar said in the Legislative Assembly on Tuesday that there will be no shortage of beef in Goa and that if needed it could take help from neighbouring state Karnataka.

In a reply to question by a BJP member in state assembly, over the beef quality supplied by the neighbouring state, Parrikar said that the beef procured from Karnataka would be put to proper process of inspection. "However, as per financial close documents of GMR Goa International Airport Limited estimated cost of Phase I of the project is Rs 1,900 crore", the Chief Minister said.

"The rest (of the beef demand) is met by Karnataka", Parrikar said. Slamming Parrikar over his beef remark, VHP asserted that Parrikar was spoiling BJP's name and that he should immediately submit his resignation.
