UTTAR PRADESH

 

AIDWA Holds Peace March

 

THE recent riots in Muzaffarpur are a cause for great concern. Deliberate polarisation is being attempted to divide the people on communal lines. The AIDWA condemns the violence and demands immediate intervention to restore peace. The Uttar Pradesh unit of the AIDWA held a peace march on September 10, 2013 along with all the sections in the society

 

Litterateurs, academicians, theater personalities and various other justice lovers under the banner of the All India Democratic Womenís Association (AIDWA) took out a peace march from Hindi Sansthan to the GPO. The members also gave a memorandum to the chief minister, Akhilesh Yadav and demanded ex-gratia to the deceasedís family and also those who are seriously injured in communal clashes. 

 

The members said the increasing incidents of communal violence shows that the state government has completely failed in maintaining law and order in the state. It was strongly felt that this communal violence broke out with an eye on the forthcoming elections. An appeal was made to all the communities to maintain peace and harmony.
