Political leaders calling street protests, bandhs or strikes will now have to be extremely careful as the Narendra Modi-led government plans to bring damage to ‘private properties’ during demonstrations under the ambit of Prevention of Damage to Public Property Bill, 2016.

The decision to include private properties was taken after Home Ministry invited suggestions from the public in May last year on the draft amendments, said officials familiar with the matter.

The Bill till now only covered government properties, including buildings and vehicles, but the officials said that they received representations and suggestions from various sectors to include private properties that are damaged during protests.
