The Uttarakhand authorities Wednesday declared all city native our bodies beneath Haridwar district “slaughterhouse-free” areas, and in addition cancelled clearances earlier issued to function slaughterhouses.
There are two municipal firms, two nagar palika parishads and 5 nagar panchayats beneath Haridwar district. The Urban Development division slaughterhouse notification comes forward of the Kumbh Mela.
BJP MLAs from the world had two days earlier given a letter to Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, demanding that slaughterhouses not be allowed in a “religious city like Haridwar”.
BJP MLA from Laksar in Haridwar instructed The Indian Express that celebration MLAs had objection over a slaughterhouse arising within the Manglaur nagar palika parishad. “Licence to set up that slaughter was issued by the previous government (Congress). It has a capacity to slaughter around 550 animals daily, and was going to start operations soon. But now its clearance has been cancelled. There is no slaughterhouse in any other area of Haridwar,” Gupta stated.
Cabinet Minister for tradition and tourism, Satpal Maharaj, stated he had requested the CM to cease the operation of the slaughterhouse.
In a video message, Satpal Maharaj stated, “Haridwar is an abode of god and we are celebrating the holy Kumbh there these days. A slaughterhouse was about to be opened there with the capacity to slaughter around 500 cows daily. I requested the Chief Minister to stop this. He accepted the request. The holiness of Haridwar will be maintained now, and Haridwar will develop.”
