Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Thursday his government will take “revenge” against those involved in the violence over the amended Citizenship Act by auctioning their property to compensate for the losses.
“There is no place for violence in a democracy. In the name of opposing the CAA, the Congress, SP and Left parties have pushed the entire country to fire,” the chief minister said.
“There was violence in Lucknow and Sambhal and we will deal with it strictly. All properties of those involved in damaging public assets will be seized and auctioned to compensate for the losses,” he said.
“They have been captured in video and CCTV footage. We will take ”badla” (revenge) on them,” he said.
