Lucknow.

This action is being taken on the basis of the guidelines given by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath during a law and order review meeting with senior officials last week. Yogi had said that everyone has the freedom to worship and offer prayers according to their religious belief, but the sound of loudspeakers should not go outside the premises so that other people do not face any problem.

According to the information given by the police department, maximum 1,366 loudspeakers have been launched from Varanasi zone. Apart from this, 1,215 loudspeakers in Meerut zone, 1,070 in Bareilly zone and 1,056 ‘illegally’ installed loudspeakers in Kanpur zone have been removed.

Police said that as far as reducing the sound of legitimate loudspeakers is concerned, the capital Lucknow is the top in this case where the sound of 6,400 loudspeakers has been reduced. Apart from this, the sound of 6,257 loudspeakers in Bareilly zone and 5,976 in Meerut zone has been limited. Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Prashant Kumar said that the work of removing loudspeakers is being done without any discrimination.

He said that 433 loudspeakers installed “illegally” at religious places in the capital Lucknow have been removed. Deputy Commissioner of Police West Somen Burma said that the process of removing illegal loudspeakers was started on Tuesday and it is still going on. We are taking this campaign forward in coordination with various religious leaders and members of peace committees. Till now we have not faced any kind of opposition.
