Earlier in the day, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath met Home Minister Rajnath Singh and discussed with him various issues concerning the state.

During the 20-minute meeting, the Chief Minister briefed the Home Minister about various aspects of the state government, of which he was sworn in as head on Sunday, official sources said.

The Home Minister conveyed his best wishes to the new government and assured all help from the central government.

Hours after Yogi taking over, 2 slaughterhouses sealed in:

Interestingly, two slaughterhouses were sealed by the authorities here last night, a development that comes within hours of BJP leader Yogi Adityanath taking over as the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister.

Almost a year ago the National Green Tribunal had ordered the closure of these two slaughterhouses, an official said.

"We sealed one slaughterhouse each in Atala locality of the city and at Naini, on the outskirts, last night. The NGT had ordered closure of these in May 2016", the district's Veterinary Officer Dheeraj Goyal said.
