As the meat sellers across Uttar Pradesh went on an indefinite strike from today against the crackdown on illegal and mechanized slaughterhouses, they urged Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to fight for the nation and not for 'gosht'.

"Yogi Adityanath should fight for the nation, not for gosht. Many people are dying without food. It has created chaos. We will support Yogi ji in his fight against Pakistan. If he (Yogi Adityanath) fights for gosht, we will raise our voices," a meat seller told ANI.

Stating that all of them are facing trouble, another meat seller said all the labourers are disturbed with the present scenario.

"Someone commits mistake and others pay for it. We have to earn our living. So many families are dependent on this. We all have become jobless now. There should be a solution to this," said another meat seller.

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

Adityanath earlier on Saturday said abattoirs operating legally will not be touched but action will be taken against those run illegally.

Warning the licensed slaughterhouses to comply as per rules, Uttar Pradesh Cabinet Minster earlier on Wednesday said that strict action would be taken against the illegal ones, adding that the main agenda of the government is to restore law and order in the state. (ANI)
