Even Taj doesn’t have special police, but Maya’s statues do-Asian Age

  • tags: no_tag

    • The Uttar Pradesh Assembly on Thursday passed by voice vote the State Special Zone Security Force Bill, which will allow the Mayawati government to set up a separate police force to guard statues of dalit icons.

      Initiating the discussion on the bill, parliamentary affairs minister Lalji Varma said the state police and the PAC were not equipped to ensure security at parks and monuments dedicated to dalit icons. The security of communally sensitive shrines in Kashi, Ayodhya and Mathura had been entrusted to the CISF, he noted.
