Ahead of Bakrid & Shravan, CM Yogi Adityanath asks officials to maintain law & order
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has directed officers to ensure law and order and arrange necessary facilities for devotees in the wake of the upcoming festivals.
Addressing officers via video conferencing, Yogi Adityanath said, “On the occasion of Bakrid, animal sacrifice should be made only at designated places. Special arrangements should be made to ensure cleanliness. Also, the sacrifice of banned animals must not be allowed. Police should deal strictly with the mischievous elements.”
“Religious activities must not obstruct road traffic. There should be no sale or purchase of meat in the open anywhere on the ‘Kanwar Yatra’ route. Besides, facilities and security arrangements for the devotees should be improved along the Kanwar Yatra route,” he added.
He directed concerned officers to hold dialogue with the religious leaders/ intellectuals before the festivals.
He said that during Bakrid, the places for sacrifice should be marked in advance. There should be no sacrifice at disputed places. Sacrifice should not be made anywhere other than the designated places.
The officers should ensure that no prohibited animal is sacrificed anywhere. There should be a systematic action plan for the systematic disposal of waste after animal sacrifice in every district.
For the ‘Kanwar Yatras’, the Chief Minister said that all necessary efforts should be made keeping in view the local needs so that every festival is celebrated with peace and harmony.
He asked officers to deploy divers on the basis of past experiences and install CCTVs on the Kanwar Yatra route.
The places for setting up of Kanwar camps should be marked in advance so that the traffic is not obstructed. There should be no display of weapons in religious processions, he said.
The festival of Bakrid will be celebrated on Thursday, while the Kanwar Yatras will begin on July 4.
Meanwhile, the police spokesman said that as many as 8,000 civil personnel, apart from armed police teams, would be deployed across the state capital, which has been divided into four zones and 18 sectors for the occasion.
Arrangements were in place for namazis at 94 Eidgahs and 1,210 mosques even as 64 hotspots were identified from where issues were reported in the past.
