Yogi Adityanath orders blanket ban on cow smuggling, directs closure of slaughterhouses

Posted April 02, 2017

In keeping with the BJP's manifesto, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday directed police officials to prepare an action plan for closure of slaughter houses across the state.

The Chief Minister will then meet Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh at his residence, after which he will call on President Pranab Mukherjee. "You are welcome. You are the Chief Minister of UP and along with that you are a member of this House", the Speaker said while inviting Adityanath to speak.

The presence of two heavyweights as deputy chief ministers and various regional and caste satraps in the ministry has made the task a tricky balancing act for the party.

During his meeting with Shah, Adityanath is likely to discuss portfolio distribution in his ministry.

He was also a contenders for the chief minister's post but missed out to the Gorakhpur MP.

His ministry had Rs 650 crore of tourism projects aimed at developing various religious and heritage circuits which, he said, will see speedy implementation now.

After being assigned the charge of India's most politically-crucial state, Adityanath assured that Uttar Pradesh would soon be considered as the supreme state in the country.

He, however, added that it should be done as per the Constitution.
