Asansol: STATE government will provide financial reward and even employment to those providing a specific tip-off to the police on riot-mongering miscreants, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced today.

“A premeditated ploy is afoot to trigger communal riots in the state by planting meat sometimes in temples and sometimes in mosques. Such tasks are being carried out by providing money to miscreants and RSS-BJP is behind this, we have definitive proof,” the Chief Minister said during an administrative review meeting at Durgapur today.

Referring to one such recent incident in North 24-Parganas district, she asked police officers to strengthen community policing in each of the localities under their jurisdiction.

“There are clubs in almost every locality in the state. Make use of them to identify and nab the riot-mongering miscreants. Ask them to take photos of such miscreants and then pass on to police. In the event of anyone providing a specific input, give Rs 1,000 instant reward and also give them a job,” the Chief Minister said with the director general of police Surajit Kar Purkayastha seated next to her.

Banerjee, however, did not clarify as to what type of employment will one be eligible for providing tip-off on riot-mongers.
