Rioters have been silenced: Yogi Adityanath on police crackdown
New Delhi : In a series of tweets, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath lauded his government's action against protesters during the anti-CAA protesters.
"Every crazy person is thinking that they have made a big mistake by challenging Yogi ji's power after looking at the fierce actions taken by the CM Shri @myogiadityanath ji's government against rioters,” his office said in a series of tweets in Hindi.
"Every rioter is shocked. Every troublemaker is astonished. Looking at the strictness of the Yogi government, everyone is silent. Do whatever you want to, but the damages will be paid by those who cause damages, this Yogi ji's announcement. Every violent protester will cry now because there is a Yogi government in UP," his office tweeted.
Both the tweets were added with a hashtag "TheGreat_CMYogi".
For those who are not aware of what the Uttar Pradesh Government has done then, they have issued a circular notifying 498 people for causing damage to the public properties. It has been mentioned that the cost of damage will be recovered from their properties.
The cops have also been advised to identify the culprits and seize their properties.
The action has been taken in accordance to the Allahabad High Court judgment in 2010. On December 2, 2010, the bench headed by Justice Sudhir Agarwal outlined the stringent measures after noting the state had failed to implement the provisions of the Prevention of Damage to Public Property, enacted in 1984 - a penal provision to punish those who damage public property.
