CM Yogi Adityanath Assured Legal Slaughterhouses Won’t Be Shutdown
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath assured meat traders that strict action will be taken against those who forcefully shutdown slaughterhouses.
He told a delegation of meat traders who met him at 6 pm on Thursday that licensed slaughterhouses will not be shutdown.
UP Minister SN Singh told the media:
The Yogi Adityanath government has ordered closure of illegal slaughterhouses and imposed a ban on cow smuggling, both of which were key electoral promises.
To protest the crackdown on illegal and mechanised slaughterhouses in Uttar Pradesh, meat sellers went on an indefinite strike.
