After the slaughter houses, the new chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath cracked down on the dirt in the state. He advised against the use of pan masala, plastic and pan in government buildings and offices said the deputy chief minister, Keshav Prasad Maurya. The chief minister, Yogi Adityanath inspected the annexe and directed the officials to maintain cleanliness of both the annexe and the state of Uttar Pradesh so that change was visible, said the deputy CM. After taking over as the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, he has actually hit the ground running.
He began by strong crackdown on illegal abattoirs but he has also directed police officials to prepare an action plan for closure of other slaughterhouses in the state. He has also ordered a blanket ban on smuggling of cows.Taking illegal slaughterhouses into account was a key poll promise made by Bharatiya Janata Party in its election campaign. In a rally addressed in Maharajganj, party vowed to shut illegal slaughter houses in the state.
“Instead of the blood of cattle, there will be streams of milk and ghee flowing throughout the state,” Shah had said. So far he has shut illegal slaughter houses in the city of Allahabad and one in Varanasi. Officials claimed that the slaughterhouse in Varanasi had been shutdown in 2012, but they continued to operate in a clandestine manner. Officials said that the slaughterhouse was sealed after the caretakers were unable to furnish valid papers for the cattle.
