UP Assembly Passes Bill To Recover Damages To Public & Private Property During Political Agitations

India Tomorrow

LUCKNOW, AUGUST 23—The State Assembly on Saturday passed as many as 27 Bills, including the Uttar Pradesh Recovery of Damages to Public and Private Properties Bill 2020 that provides for recovery of damages caused to public and private property during political agitations/demonstrations and taking out of processions.

All the Bills were passed without any discussion, with the Opposition parties protesting against the poor law and order in the state and atrocities on Dalits, OBCs and other backward communities.

The Bill will replace the Uttar Pradesh Recovery of Damages to Public and Private Properties Ordinance 2020 that was brought by the Yogi Adityanath government in March this year in the backdrop of the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests. After passage of the Ordinance, the UP government had issued orders to recover Rs. 1.5 crore from 57 persons, including former IPS officer S R Darapuri and Congress leader Sadaf Jafar, for damage to public and private property in the violence on December 19, 2019, during anti-CAA agitation.

The bill also allows the state government to put up hoardings and posters to name and shame at public places, part from recovering damages to public and private property from protesters and rioters.
