After the banning of sale of meat and liquor in some parts of Mathura by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, opposition parties have questioned the move.
The Samajwadi Party said the state government is trying to divert the public from real issues and asked why it took so long to make such a move.
Samajwadi Party MLC Sunil Sajan said, “BJP has expertise in doing Hindu-Muslim politics. Why didn’t they take such a decision in the last four years? Those selling meat and liquor in Mathura should also be prioritised in giving employment which seems least expected from the saffron party.”
Congress UP Chief Ajay Kumar Lallu asked why the CM did not visit children dying due to viral fever in Mathura. He said the CM is just busy in photo shoots to take mileage ahead of the 2022 Assembly election.
Meanwhile, the UP CM also suggested that those selling liquor or meat should be given small milk stalls so that Mathura can relive its old days of glory.
The city of Mathura is considered holy by the Hindus and known as the birthplace of Lord Krishna.
