No orders given to stop selling chicken, eggs: BJP on slaughterhouses

"We also want to say that super excited officials should use their discretion with the sellers who have licenses".

"The Uttar Pradesh Government has made it very clear that they are only taking action on those slaughter houses which are illegal".

"Those who are having proper license and following the proper guideline they don't need to fear".

After coming to power, the Yogi Adityanath-led government has ordered the closure of illegal slaughterhouses and strict enforcement of the ban on cow smuggling to fulfill a key electoral promise.

He had promised on Saturday that "the government will not touch those (abattoirs) that are operating as per the law and have a valid licence".

Clearing confusion over its action against slaughter houses in the state, the Uttar Pradesh government on Monday said it was acting only against the illegal abattoirs. Congress leader Renuka Chaudhary said, "Can we let the children of meat sellers perish?". This has reportedly created the scarcity of meat in the state leading to the shutting down of many meat selling shops.

The Lucknow bench of the court asked why the LMC had not renewed the licenses of meat shops, which expired in 2014.

The petitioners moved a writ petition in the high court in 2015 and the court had sought reply from the respondents, Sinha said.
