Officials from the Allahabad Nagar Nigam (civic agency) shut two illegal slaughterhouses on Monday. A day after Yogi Adityanath took over as the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh the government has moved towards fulfilling its poll promise. Shutting down of illegal slaughterhouses was a prominent poll promise of the BJP and the initiation of the process has begun just a day after government formation.
The shutting down of the illegal slaughterhouses is being viewed as a direct effect of Yogi Adityananth. BJP National president Amit Shah, had vowed to shut illegal slaughter houses in the state while addressing a rally in Maharajganj. The same was reiterated on multiple platforms and Monday's crackdown seems to be a translation of the promise on ground.
