Legal meat being unavailable in Lucknow indicates failure of Yogi Adityanath Govt. in UP

The government’s crackdown was most prominently illustrated in its impact on restaurants like the legendary Tunday Kababi in Lucknow. Established in 1905, the original Tunday Kababi in Old Lucknow was closed for a day last week, because of a shortage of buffalo meat used to make its famous galawati kebabs. The restaurant’s ownership decided to open the following day but, for the very first time, serving only chicken and mutton because it still could not procure legal buffalo meat.

The main question that reverberated online, especially among those defending the government’s crackdown on illegal slaughterhouses: Why can’t Tunday Kababi buy its buffalo meat from a legal, licensed slaughterhouse?

The answer is simple. Uttar Pradesh’s capital, Lucknow – the country’s 11th-most populous city with three million people – does not currently have a legal slaughterhouse for buffalo meat. After the slaughterhouse at Maulviganj was locked last week, it does not have one for mutton either.

Many asked: Is it the government’s fault that those operating slaughterhouses in the city are not legally licensed?

Such a question might make sense in a country where food provisions are more reliant on free markets. But in India, the government is so tightly wound up in the business of food provision that any shortage – whether of grains or pulses or meat – is usually the fault of the administration, and not the private players.

In Uttar Pradesh, it is the legal responsibility of the municipal corporations to build, maintain and licence slaughterhouses to make sure there is a supply of legal, hygienic meat.

In other words, if a restaurant like Tunday Kababi is unable to procure legal meat, this means the local government has failed at its job.
