Ludhiana, December 25. Ever since the High Court asked Mohali and Ludhiana district administration to allot accommodation to riot victims, people affected by the riots in other districts have also begun to demand the same.
The accommodation would be provided on the basis of a lottery system. Adhering to the Court orders, the authorities in the two districts have begun to make lists of the victims. Moreover, the highest number of Danga Peerats is registered in these districts.
But Punjab has 22 districts and there are riot victims in almost every district. On this issue, a civil writ petition was filed by the riot victims in the High Court.
An official in the Revenue Department, Chandigarh, said the riot victims from Jalandhar and Amritsar had been approaching the Ludhiana District Administration to accommodate them as well.
The official said a letter, inquiring as to what should be done in this matter, was also sent to the Financial Commissioner, Revenue, from Ludhiana District Administration recently.
“A meeting on this issue should be held with all the district heads. At the same time, the riot victims in other districts should also be considered in the allotment process in Ludhiana and Mohali districts,” said the official.
