CHANDIGARH/CHENI, Feb 10: Harya minister Anil Vij said on Wednesday that “those who cannot live without beef should not come to Harya”. His comment came on a day when Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said in Cheni that there was no controversy over the beef ban in the state. “Those who can’t live without beef should not come to Harya,” Vij tweeted. Khattar is in Cheni, leading an official delegation to attract investments in Harya. Asked about the beef ban in Harya and how foreign investors were reacting to it, Khattar said: “No one has approached the government in this regard.” He said 12 organisations had promised to invest around Rs.3,000 crore in his state. Harya introduced a law last year under which sale of beef was banned in the state. With the state seeking investment from other countries, the beef ban has became a sticky issue for the Khattar government. Vij is a senior minister in the first BJP government in the state which came to power in October 2014. (IANS)
