Eat beef in your country and then come to India, says Alphons
New Delhi: Union Tourism Minister Alphons Kannanthanam on Thursday suggested foreigners to eat beef in their own country and then come here (India).
Asked whether cow vigilantism and restrictions on beef consumption in several states had affected India’s hospitality sector, the minister said on Thursday: “They (foreigner tourists) can eat beef in their country and come to India.”
Alphons Kannanthanam was addressing the 33rd annual convention of the Indian Association of Tour Operators in Bhubaneswar.
Alphons Kannanthanam also said that to promote tourism across India, his ministry had sought innovative ideas.
