As a result, the activities, including the assemblage of five or more people, taking out public processions, presentation of any kind, protest, raising slogan, strike, hunger strike and burning of effigies have been banned in these three areas. Violation of the order in any form would invite punishment under section 188 of the Indian Pel Code. The recent tumultuous happenings in Lekai against the Waste Disposal Magement Project had caused fincial losses as well as damage of public property.
