Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday directed to shut down of ‘illegal’ slaughter houses.
Apart from it he also ordered banning of pan masala, gutka in all government offices in Uttar Pradesh.
The newly-elected CM took the significant step as numerous government offices across UP bear the ugly sight of stains of `paan’ and `gutka’ on the walls.
In keeping with the BJP’s manifesto, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister today directed police officials to prepare an action plan for closure of slaughter houses across the state.
He also ordered a blanket ban on smuggling of cows and said zero tolerance would be exercised in this regard.
