On October 12, 1994 addressing a public meeting Mulayam Singh Yadav denounced the two papers, "Halla Bol", he exhorted his followers, "Commence the storming". Why read them, hetold them, you don't have to even see them. No one present had any doubt what they meant: Don't let them be seen, that is what it meant.

After that call, hawkers and news agents selling the two papers were beaten up. Journalists of the two papers were beaten up.
