Chandigarh: Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij on Wednesday said with the implementation of the Haryana Recovery of Damages to Property Act, any damage done to public and private property in the protests would be recovered from the violators.
He said the notification of the Act has been issued by the state government. “Any such movement in the future will hamper the intention to damage people or public property. Carrying out such movements is part of democracy but it is incorrect to harm in guise of it, ” he said.
The minister said that a tribunal would be set up to take up such complaints and take action against the offenders.
He said the parties who are opposing this Act should clarify whether they are in favour of those who burn shops, houses, government offices, trains, buses and other public property or are in favour of those who have been harassed in the process.
