Just a day after the newly sworn-in chief minister Yogi Adityanath took charge of Uttar Pradesh, the Allahabad Nagar Nigam has sealed two slaughter houses in city.
It was not cleared that the move came after an issuance of executive order or it was a prerogative action of the civic authorities.
Yogi Adityanath had during poll rallies promised to shut down slaughter houses across the state if they were voted to power.
The BJP’s manifesto was clear –– all illegal and legal slaughterhouses in UP will be closed down from the night a BJP government is sworn in.
There are nearly 40 legal slaughterhouses in UP which are duly licensed by the Centre’s Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA).
