A day after Yogi Adityanath took oath as the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Allahabad Nagar Nigam authorities on Monday sealed two slaughterhouses in the 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.

Adityanath, who is also observed as hardline mascot of Hindutava, has been advocating for the closure of illegal slaughter houses.

Soon after the BJP's thumping victory state, the BJP chief had assured that next state government in Uttar Pradesh will close all slaughter houses.

BJP president Amit Shah had on Friday said that he had promised to shut down all the slaughterhouses running in the state ahead of the Assembly elections.

He said there were three slaughterhouses in the city and "all are closed now". In a rally addressed in Maharajganj, party vowed to shut illegal slaughter houses in the state. "Uttar Pradesh will be on the map of developed states of the country".

Though, the manifesto pitches on closing down of illegal abattoirs, the owners of more than a dozen registered mechanised abattoirs were panic as such a step will cripple investments worth crores and the thousands of people will be left unemployed. "We deal in buffalo meat, not beef...modern machines have been put by us to improve quality of meat", Yakood said.
