A anxious Mohd Imran Yakoob who employs 1,500 people at "Al Faheem Meatex" in Meerut told Economic Times, "The election was first (based) on development but BJP digressed to polarisation and said it will close all slaughterhouses in UP". "Instead of blood of cattle, there will be streams of milk and ghee flowing throughout the state", Shah had said. The action came just a day after Yogi Adityanath took oath as the Chief Minister of the state.
