What did the BJP minister say?

Shantanu Thakur told news agency PTI that, “Why would someone smuggle three kilos of beef? Isn’t this absurd? He knows that such passes are issued for the convenience of people in border areas. He has deliberately hidden this.

BSF sources said such slips are issued by panchayats in border areas to carry goods to common people. However, goods cannot be transported to Bangladesh through this pass under any circumstances.
