In a surprising announcement, BJP's Tripura in-charge Sunil Deodhar on Tuesday, 14 March, said that the party would not be banning beef in Tripura.
According to The Indian Express, Deodhar spoke to the media about factors that influenced BJP's victory in Tripura as well as the issues faced by the state.
In conversation with the media, Deodhar said that beef will not be banned in Tripura because most people there consume it on a regular basis and they are against the ban.
The Northeast region, including the state of Tripura, mostly consists of Christians and Muslims. In fact, it would be a little difficult for many to digest the fact that many Hindus in this region consume beef. This is the reason why there was no ban on beef consumption.Sunil Deodhar, as reported by The Indian Express
