‘Communal flare-up’ fear puts Uttarakhand on alert | India News


DEHRADHUN: Barely a few months after BJP member Ajendra Ajay wrote to CM Pushkar Singh Dhami, objecting to the purchase of land in the hills and setting up places of worship by “members of a certain community”, terming it “land jihad”, the Uttarakhand government on Friday in an official communication, said it had come to its notice that “rapid population growth in some areas of the state had led to a demographic shift, whose ill-effects had started showing in the form of migration of people of certain communities”.
The official release stated, “There is a possibility of communal atmosphere getting vitiated in some places. Expressing concern over the situation, the government has directed the DGP, all district magistrates and SSPs to take precautionary steps to address the problem”.
The release added, the government has called for the formation of peace committees in various areas.
“Police and district authorities have been told to mark such areas and ensure strict action is taken against anti-social elements. They have also been asked to prepare a district-wise list of people who have come from other states and have a criminal history,” it said.
