"Claims will be recovered from rioters who damage public property," says CM Yogi Adityanath
Lucknow: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said that the state will not accept anarchy and claims will be collected from rioters and miscreants for damaging public or private property.
“Uttar Pradesh does not accept anarchy. Damage claims will be recovered from those rioters, miscreants who damaged public or private property. Alert and Safe Uttar Pradesh,” the CM tweeted in Hindi.
उत्तर प्रदेश को अराजकता स्वीकार नहीं है।
सार्वजनिक अथवा निजी संपत्ति को क्षति पहुंचाने वाले दंगाइयों और उपद्रवियों से वसूली सुनिश्चित की जाएगी।
सतर्क उत्तर प्रदेश, सुरक्षित उत्तर प्रदेश।

Yogi had approved the constitution of the property damage claims tribunal in Lucknow and Meerut as per the provisions of Uttar Pradesh Public and Private Property Damage Recovery Rules 2020.
The massive decision was first taken after the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests erupted in the state in December last year. CM Yogi had said that the cost of damages to public properties will be recovered from the protesters.
