Opposition Congress voices concern over Assam Cattle Act in Meghalaya Assy

Shillong, Sep 14 (UNI) Meghalaya’s opposition Congress on Tuesday voiced serious concerns in the assembly over the Assam Preservation of Cattle Act, which has put restrictions on the movement of cattle to the State, where beef is one of the major staple diets, even as the government assured that the matter was being sorted out with the neighbouring State.
Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma told the house that the Meghalaya government had taken up the matter relating to the transport of cattle to the State through Assam and that his counterpart has assured that all documents required by the traders would be from Meghalaya.
He said that during his recent meeting with the Assam chief minister regarding the inter-state boundary issue, the matter relating to the transport of cattle had also come up and that there was in-principle agreement that all papers will be done from the Meghalaya side, but there is a bit of non-clarity, which, he said was being sorted out.
