Lucknow: The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday sought a reply from the Lucknow Municipal Corporation (LMC) by April 3 about renewal of licences of meat shops in the state capital.
The Lucknow bench of the court asked why the LMC had not renewed the licences of meat shops, which expired in 2014.
A division bench of justices Amreshwar Pratap Sahi and Sanjay Harkauli gave the order on an application moved in a writ petition of 2015 filed by Shahabuddin and many other meat sellers.
Meanwhile, UP health minister Siddharth Nath Singh is scheduled to meet a delegation representing slaughterhouse owners at 3 PM at his office in the Vidhan Sabha in a bid to resolve the situation.
Meat sellers across Uttar Pradesh went on an indefinite strike from Monday against the crackdown on illegal and mechanised slaughterhouses.
Fish vendors also resolved to join the stir which has seen non-vegetarian delicacies go off the menu in several parts of the state.
Due to the strike, non-vegetarian food outlets, including the famous Tunday and Rahim's have shifted to mutton and chicken dishes after buffalo meat became scarce.
