Answering a query on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent remarks against cow vigilantism, Yogi Adityanath said his government was doing its work.

He also said his government takes guidance from the Centre whenever needed.
"I go to party (BJP) president (Amit Shah) and Prime Minister Modi for guidance," he said.
On the rollout of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), Yogi Adityanath said that it would make India an economic superpower and lead to the prosperity of all sections of people.
