BHOPAL: After the Yogi Adityanath government’s crackdown against illegal slaughterhouses in Uttar Pradesh (UP), the Madhya Pradesh (MP) government has announced shutting down of illegal slaughterhouses.
MP chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced the move at a religious function of the Jain community in Mohankheda of Dhar district.
The CM was attending the Acharya Pattabhishek ceremony of Jain seer Rishabh Vijayji. Chouhan made the announcement in response to a request made by the Jain seer, who became head
of the Mohankheda pilgrimage on Sunday.

Rishabh Vijayji said he had raised the issue of illegal slaughterhouses with the chief minister during his recent visit to Mohankheda for the State BJP executive meeting.
However, Shivraj Singh Chouhan did not give a deadline for the crackdown against illegal slaughterhouses. In April, Bhopal mayor Alok Sharma had said that the Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) had identified 100 illegal meat shops in various parts of the State capital and assured action under relevant rules and regulations. The Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) had also, in April, demolished an illegal meat shop-cum-slaughterhouse in Manik Bag area.
On Saturday, acting on the lines of UP, BJP-ruled Haryana had decided to take action against illegal slaughterhouses.
