The way the UP government has handled the rioters by asking them to pay for the damage caused to public properties is commendable. This has caused much heartburn among the liberals as they attempt to paint a distorted image of the UP Police, but the Yogi government is only following the orders of the Supreme Court. The SC in its October 2018 observed that the state governments must make those responsible for damage to public property liable to compensate victims and reimburse the losses. Now, UP CM Yogi Adityanath has hit another level of ‘badassery’ with his latest announcement on Twitter.
The actions taken by the Yogi Adityanath-led government has “shocked” every protester into silence, the chief minister’s office has said in a series of tweets amid criticism against the crackdown during the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests.
“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.
Confirming the stern action of the UP government on the rioters who had damaged public property while protesting against the CAA, residents of violence-hit areas of Bulandshahr handed over a demand draft of Rs 6.27 Lakh to the district magistrate along with an assurance that such incident will not happen again in future. Senior officials called it a “voluntary act of repentance”. Additionally, the UP government has served a notice to 498 people for causing damage to public property and will soon move to seize their property. More than 320 cases have been registered so far, 1113 people have been arrested and 5558 taken in preventive custody, Uttar Pradesh director general of police OP Singh has said.
While the liberal cabal tries to pin blame on the UP Police, it is a fact that UP has witnessed unprecedented levels of violence with the UP Police often a target of the violent mob. In Lucknow, the violent mob burned an entire police post. A total of 20 motorcycles, 10 cars, 3 buses and 4 media OB vans were torched by the violent mobs in the area surrounding Parvati Chowk in Lucknow.
