The Allahabad Nagar Nigam on Monday sealed two slaughter houses in city just a day after newly sworn-in chief minister Yogi Aditya Nath took the charge of the state.
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.
The new chief minister had vowed during poll rallies to shut down slaughter houses across the state if they had voted to power. Adityanath is also the founder of the organisation Hindu Yuva Vahini that has been leading drives against cow slaughter and ‘love jihad’.
It remains to be seen whether the step was a poll promise.
