“We have fixed 16 July as the date for auction of the two shops that were sealed on Tuesday,” said Tehsildar (Sadar) Shambhu Sharan Singh, as quoted by the popular website. 

It must also be noted that the Tehsildar has added that if the accused do pay for the damages caused, the auction process will be dropped. 

It is interesting to note that the Allahabad high court had halted the auctioning process due to the corona pandemic on March 20. But now the Lucknow administration has restarted the process. 

The UP government has identified as many as 57 rioters. These rioters collectively owe a sum of Rs 1.55 crore as damages. 

In an unprecedented move, the Uttar Pradesh BJP government, led by Yogi Adityanath, had put up a hoarding detailing the names and addresses of anti-CAA rioters and vandals and the sum they owe as damages caused to properties.

A popular website had added that the hoardings erected by the Lucknow police also contained the residential address of each rioter. 

A note on CAA


The CAA, passed by both houses of the Indian Parliament last December, grants citizenship to non-Muslim minorities of Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. The only condition they need to fulfil is that they have to be in India hitherto December 31, 2014.

But the Congress and its coterie have resorted to a wilful campaign of spreading lies and misinformation, with a resolve to instigate the innocents against the Modi-led NDA government.

In spite of innumerable clarifications given by the PM and the Union home minister Amit Shah that the CAA doesn’t apply to any Indian citizen, protests continue across the nation.

Apart from the riots in Uttar Pradesh, Delhi too witnessed the same, with 47 people losing their lives and more than a 100 injured.

What is essentially a one-time offer to integrate minorities with India is being seen as draconian and demonic.
