The Bihar Police have cancelled all leaves of its personnel from September 28 to October 8.

The decision has been taken in view of Bajrang Dal yatra and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) to raise awareness over the “larger design” behind attacks on Sanatana Dharma, the reports said.

“…the leaves were cancelled to maintain law and order when the Bajrang Dal and VHP are due to organise the Shourya Jagran Yatra in Bihar. The yatra is being held nationwide, including in Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh,” HT report quoting the official letter said.

Tamil Nadu minister and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leader Udhayanidhi Stalin’s comments earlier this month that “Sanatana Dharma should be eradicated” triggered an uproar.

DMK is a key constituent of the Opposition Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA), which includes Bihar’s ruling parties.
