Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said he will direct the Mathura administration to prepare a roadmap to impose a ban on meat and liquor in the vicinity of seven Hindu pilgrimage sites in the district.
He made the announcement in Mathura on Monday while addressing an event on the occasion of Janmashtami (Hindu deity Krishna’s birthday). The chief minister said, “Yahaan ke saat sthalon ko teerth sthal ghoshit kiya. Aur teerth sthal ghoshit karne ke baad, ab yahaan pe sabki tamanna hai ki in sabhi shetron mein kisi bhi prakaar ka madya ya maans sevan na ho. Aur yeh hona chahiye. Prashasan se kahunga ki iski ghoshna yojna banaye. [We declared the seven religious sites as pilgrimage sites. And after the announcement, everyone here wants that at these seven places no liquor or meat is consumed. I am telling the administration to prepare a roadmap for this].”
