‘Shoot At Sight’ If Protesters Vandalise Railway Property: Junior Railway Minister
Amid unrest across the country over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), Union Minister of State (MoS) Railways, Suresh Angadi on Tuesday, December 17, warned the concerned district administration and railway authorities to ‘shoot’ at sight if anybody is seen destroying public property. “I strictly warn concerned district administration and railway authorities, if anybody destroys public property, including railway, I direct as a Minister, shoot them at sight”, Angadi told ANI when asked about the losses faced by railways in West Bengal and other states due to the ongoing protests in the belt. The minister further said that it is taxpayers’ money and it takes years to develop one train. “If anybody throws stones at that time government should take stringent action like Vallabhbhai Patel. Local minorities, some communities are unnecessarily creating problems to destabilise the country’s economy,” he added.
