BJP-ruled states cautious on law & order

The BJP-ruled states — Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat — are gearing up to maintain the law and order satiation in the light of a high court’s judgment to be pronounced on September 24 on a tile suit at Ayodhya. The Congress is also leaving nothing to chance and the AICC general secretaries have already swung into action.

The Congress apprehends that some radical communal organisations, both Muslim and Hindu, could disturb the law and order situation after the court delivers the verdict, AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh said in Jaipur.
He said the Centre is monitoring the activities of both Hindu and Muslim radical groups as well as the BJP, and no one would be allowed to indulge in any anti-social activities.
The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad high court will pronounce its judgement on the Babri Masjid and Ram Janmabhoomi title suit on Friday.
Karnataka government on Wednesday declared a two-day holiday for all educational institutions in the state beginning September 24 as a preventive measure. Chief minister B.S. Yeddyurappa said in Bengaluru that his government has taken all preventive steps to ensure that no untoward incident takes place.
He said he would hold a meeting of all political leaders and religious heads to seek their cooperation in maintaining communal harmony, peace and law and order.
Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has put aside all his engagements for the day to monitor preparations on security arrangements in the state in wake of the impending Ayodhya verdict.
“Chouhan has reserved the full day today. He will meet state chief secretary Avani Vaish and director-general of police Santosh Kumar Raut to discuss various steps taken by them to maintain law and order situation in various districts of the state,” said officials at the CM’s residence.
He has also called a meeting of all the seven MLAs in the city, Bhopal mayor Krishna Gaur, all religious heads and other representatives at his official residence to chalk out measures to maintain peace and communal harmony in the state, they said.
Security has been beefed up in the state. “The state government is determined to deal strictly with all those who try to disturb the situation following the September 24 judgement,” Madhya Pradesh home minister Umashanker Gupta said.
The Barkatullah University in Bhopaln has cancelled examinations for Bachelor of Physical Education and Bachelor of Business Administration in view of the Ayodhya title suits
In Ahmedabad, Gujarat chief Minister Narendra Modi appealed to the people of the state to maintain peace after a verdict. All police commissioners and district superintendents of Gujarat have been directed to tighten security in their respective jurisdictions.
“There will be excitement to know about the Ayodhya verdict which will come after long legal battle, but momentary anxiety will not do good to anybody. Enemies of the country are in search of opportunities to disturb social fabric of the country and we should not allow them to succeed,” Mr Modi said

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
