Public property damaged by groups or political parties: can the Govt recover the cost from them?
Can and should the State Govt. impose a penalty for damage to public property? What are you views?
Normally opposition parties and its allies are up in arms when the government takes some arbitrary decision and that irks them. They make demonstrations, bandh and even resorting to damaging some public properties. Though police do take the situation under control and before that the damage is already done. What are options before the law and the government ? Can they recover the cost of the property lost or damaged during the agitation instigated by a group or political parties participation. Does any state government impose such fines and penalties ?
