He further said that no orders have been issued to take any action against any shop selling chicken, fish or eggs.

While they "support banning illegal abattoirs", they oppose the move to shut down "all the mechanized ones".

Reports say that immediately after taking office, one of his first acts was to instruct police officials to crack down on "illegal" slaughterhouses in the state.

"Those who are having proper license and following the proper guideline they don't need to fear. If this norm is not complied with, then instead of ordering the closure of the slaughter house, a notice may be issued to its owner, and he be instructed to take necessary remedial steps within a specific timeframe".

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".

Meat sellers across the state today went on an indefinite strike against the crackdown on illegal and mechanised slaughterhouses.

"It is not as if only Muslims consume meat, one of the largest consumers of meat are Hindus". During Question Hour in the Lok Sabha, Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi said the export of buffalo meat had gone down, and China was not allowing the import of Indian buffalo meat. Congress leader Renuka Chaudhary said, "Can we let the children of meat sellers perish?".

Meat sellers, especially mutton vendors, in Uttar Pradesh went on an indefinite strike yesterday against the state-wide crackdown on illegal and mechanised slaughterhouses.

In a related development, the Allahabad High Court on Monday sought a reply from the Lucknow Municipal Corporation (LMC) on April 3 in the matter of renewal of licenses of meat shops in the state capital.

As per the shop owners, the government is not renewing their license and when they open their shops the police ask them to close it. After coming to power, the new UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath has ordered the closure of illegal slaughterhouses and strict enforcement of the ban on cow smuggling to fulfil a key electoral promise, which led to their closure.
