Ahead of the verdict in the Ayodhya land dispute, former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday appealed to the people of the state to maintain peace and harmony.
Reaching state BJP office in Bhopal, Shivraj Singh Chouhan said, “We appeal to all the people of the state, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters that Honourable Supreme Court is going to give its judgement on Ayodhya. Whatever decision comes, every section of the society should accept that decision, respect that decision.”
The former CM said, “There is no question of defeat or victory. May peace, harmony and love remain in the state because we are all sons and daughters of mother India.”
“The country is ours, the state is ours. Therefore, it is our responsibility to contribute in keeping harmony and love,” Shivraj Singh Chouhan added.
Shivraj Singh Chouhan further said, “There should not be any such activity, due to which there will be a feeling of hate against each other. Let us all resolve that everyone should live in love and peace in the state.”
While there is an alert across the country in view of the court’s judgement in Ayodhya case, organisations are taking initiative to maintain solidarity in the society on their behalf.
An alert has also been issued in Madhya Pradesh. While the holiday of all police personnel in Madhya Pradesh has been cancelled, Section 144 has been imposed in most of the cities. Section 144 will remain in force in the capital Bhopal for the next two months.
Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh police are keeping a strong vigil on social media. Bhopal Collector has issued a helpline number in which any objectionable or inflammatory material uploaded on social media can be reported. Action will also be taken against the group administrator if anyone posts objectionable or inflammatory content on WhatsApp groups.
