At the same time, he supported the closure of illegal and mechanized slaughterhouses in the state, saying it was hard for a common man to pass through a locality where the slaughterhouses were operating nearly openly.

"Whatever is illegal should be acted against". The committee has also asked the meat traders to shut their restaurants and hotels, while stating that under the guise of closure of illegal slaughter house, the govement is pestering the small businessmen.

Yogi Aditynath today said he was informed by BJP chief Amit Shah only a day before the swearing-in ceremony that he will be the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister.

The Chief Minister also said the government has already started the process to ban these slaughterhouses.

"My government will be for everyone, not specifically for any caste or community ..."

Power Point presentations by each department is being prepared for the chief minister, who is expected to sit through the demo to have a firsthand account of the situation on the ground.

Meat sellers across UP are on an indefinite strike from Monday against the crackdown on illegal and mechanised slaughterhouses.

In a press note, the cops wrote with extreme "anguish" that how an individual had doctored the image of "symbol of faith" and Uttar Pradesh's chief minister, Yogi Adityanath. "We will work towards making UP the No. 1 state in the country", he added.

Emphasising on the need to strengthen internal discipline between the police officials and subordinates, chief minister has asked the police officials to keep a check on their team, so they can identify the black sheep involved with criminals and anti-social elements. "Fish sellers, too, have joined us", said Mubeen Qureshi, a representative of the meat-sellers association in the state capital, Lucknow. Renewing of licenses is also taking a lot of time.

ANTI-Muslim riots erupted again in Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state of Gujarat resulting into killing of at least one Muslim and injuries to fourteen others.

"Even BJP cadres were supposed to follow the discipline at the event", a senior police official said. Aditya Nath assured that development in the state will not be limited to just eastern Uttar Pradesh and Gorakhpur.

The CM is also keeping a close eye on the functioning of the UP police.
