No orders given to stop selling chicken, eggs: BJP on slaughterhouses

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday urged people to not be convinced by the fake news going around in connection to the Uttar Pradesh Government's stand of banning illegal slaughterhouses."No orders given by the Government to close down shops selling chicken and eggs. Do not believe news of it going around on social media," said BJP senior leader Siddharth Nath Singh. He added that action is being taken only against illegal slaughterhouses. The Minister also cautioned officials against shutting down slaughterhouses for minor fixes.
