“We are citizens of a democratic country and we have to continue the dialogue with all parties,” he was quoted as saying in an official release.

However, the action against the miscreants should continue. The action should be such that it becomes an example for all elements having anti-social views so that no one can even think of spoiling the environment.

Adityanath said those making mischievous statements should be dealt with strictly but no innocent should be harmed.
He said that in the last few days, attempts were made by anti-social elements to disturb peace and harmony in Kanpur, Prayagraj, Saharanpur, Moradabad, Hathras, Firozabad and Ambedkar Nagar.
