CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that it was the state religion to take action against the perpetrators, adding that such cases should not be allowed to go anywhere, it was not a violation of law and order.
Madhya Pradesh The Shivraj Singh Chauhan government has become stronger after the recent (Madhya Pradesh) incident of throwing stones at a gathering of Ram devotees and is going to enact strict laws against stone throwing. In order to recover property damage by stone-throwers in the state, a draft law has been prepared, if the culprits do not pay compensation, his property will be auctioned off and the victim will be paid. It will be placed in the cabinet with the permission of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan. It is noteworthy that in December, a Janazagaran rally was stoned to death for donations to the Ram temple in Ujjain, while Sevar was also accused of throwing stones at the Janjagaran rally. After the incident, the chief minister showed toughness and spoke about the law against stone throwing.
The villagers started digging the river in the hope of getting old gold and silver coins.
The Home Department has read and drafted the laws of UP, Maharashtra and Karnataka. It has been decided that compensation will be levied from the stone-drivers and the property of anyone who does not pay will be attached. Strict measures will be taken for throwing stones by forwarding women and children. There will also be recovery from the instigators for throwing stones.

Damage assessment will be in the hands of an additional collector level official. The administration will apply for damages. The claim tribunal will order compensation. There will be a provision to complete the process within 3 months. Equal responsibility will be laid down for all those involved in the protest, and interest will be charged for non-payment of losses on time. CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that it is the state religion to take action against criminals, no matter where such cases are allowed to go, it is not a common violation of law and order, so extraordinary laws are needed.

On the other hand, the Opposition, Congress has objected to the bill’s proposal, with former law minister and Congress MLA PC Sharma saying that now the law for stone throwers, knives, gunmen is a law for everyone but the government is just misleading, we can’t do development work. We will take these things and fight with full force in the assembly. However, the Home Office said that the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act, 1974, provides for five years imprisonment for damage to public property, while the IPC mentions measures for rioting and violence, but does not include stone-breaking or damage. There is no mention of compensation, so this law is necessary. It is believed that the budget session of the Legislature may begin from 22 February.
