Meat sellers on indefinite strike in UP

While police and local municipal authorities have already started to crack down on illegal slaughterhouses within the state, the members of the association are anxious.

Meanwhile, several meat shops which were allegedly running without licenses were closed down in Thana Bhawan, Jalalabad and Shamli towns on Friday, he said.

Amid reports of some vigilante groups working to force closure of abattoirs in Uttar Pradesh, the police on Saturday said that only the force and administration officials are authorised to take action against illegal slaughterhouses operating in the state.

UP DGP Javeed Ahmed in a statement said: "Only the police and administration officials would act against illegal slaughterhouses operating in the state and not any self-proclaimed person from the society".

With UP government announcing a ban on all mechanized slaughterhouses in the state, many meat exporters have found themselves in a bit of a fix as the new policy is at odds with the policy that Centre passed, granting many slaughterhouses "industry status".

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) used the issue of slaughter houses in a big way during the election campaign and now it wants to deliver on the promises made. "This has armed law-enforcing agencies to harass us", says Fauzan Alvi, the association's member secretary.

Yogi has also ordered a ban on smuggling of cows within the state and said there would be zero tolerance for offenders who break these laws.

.

The fear of being shut down is still lingering and it has even compelled many slaughterhouses to close before the government shuts them down or before people bring it down to the ground.
