According to their tweets, their actions against the protestors were not only justified, but also an example for the rest of the nation. They also added the hashtag ‘#TheGreat_CmYogi’ to the tweets, while stating that ‘seeing the strictness of the Yogi government, everyone is silent’. 

This is what the complete tweet stated: 

Every rioter is shocked. Every troublemaker is shocked. Seeing the strictness of the Yogi government, everyone is silent. Do anything, now the compensation will be from the one who did the damage, this is Yogi ji’s announcement. Every violent protester will cry now because there is a Yogi government in UP.

Recently, CM Yogi Adityanath had also stated that every protestor or rioter who has damaged public property will have to compensate the state for the losses incurred. However, reports of police brutality and religious profiling have also emerged from the state.
