The Yogi Adityanath government has decided to attach the properties of vandals and recover damages caused to public property. 

With this move, the rioters have been caught unawares and will think twice before indulging in such nefarious activities. 

"Every rioter is shocked. Every demonstrator is stunned. Everyone has been silenced after seeing Yogi Adityanath government's strict actions. Do whatever now, compensation will be taken from anyone who damages public property. Every violent protester will cry now because there is a Yogi government in Uttar Pradesh," the CMO said.

"Every rioter is thinking they made a big mistake by challenging Yogi ji's government after seeing strict actions taken by it against rioters. 

However, there were many who questioned the move of the chief minister and even went to the extent of saying that he was targeting Muslims.

But there is nothing to worry as the move is based on an Allahabad high court in 2010 that allowed the government to recover losses.

In fact, in the year 2017, the Punjab and Haryana high court ordered the attachment of properties belonging to Dera Sacha Sauda in relation to the massive vandalism caused after he was found guilty in a case.

A committee was formed which will receive representation from those who have suffered losses and also assess damage to public property. Those responsible for the violence will be identified through CCTV footage and video recording made in different areas.

The process will be completed within 30 days.

Uttar Pradesh witnessed some of the worst riots in the name of opposition to the CAA. More than 10 people have lost their lives in the melee.

On the other hand, the CAA, passed by both houses of the Indian Parliament, aims to grant citizenship to religiously persecuted Hindus and non-Muslims in the countries of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
