But the state government paid no heed to their requests and forced them to evict the land. As many as 250 families were living in three camps in the districts.

The All India Milli Council (AIMC) has strongly reacted on the Uttar Pradesh government’s move to remove riot victims from camps in Shamli district terming the action ‘inhuman’ and ‘unconstitutional’. AIMC general secretary Dr Manzoor Alam said that without ensuring safety to the victims, the SP government has removed them at the ‘mercy of goons’. He said Samajawadi Party has betrayed its true colour by displacing the victims without taking safety into consideration. It seems that the SP government is under   pressure from the communal elements after it faced humiliating defeat in the just concluded general elections.
