NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court’s judgement in the Ayodhya land dispute case should not viewed as a matter of victory or loss for any community, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday. In a series of tweets, the Prime Minister appealed to the people to maintain peace after the Supreme Court pronounces the verdict in the communally-sensitive case on Saturday. “The Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya would not be a matter of victory or loss. My appeal to countrymen is that it should be our priority that the verdict should strengthen India’s great tradition of peace, unity and amity,” he said. Meanwhile, security has been beefed up in Ayodhya ahead of the judgment. Reports suggest that around 4,000 paramilitary personnel have been rushed to Uttar Pradesh in preparation for the Ayodhya verdict. Two helicopters, one in Lucknow and another in Ayodhya, have been put on standby to deal with emergencies. A state-level control room has been set up in Lucknow, whereas every district will have its own control room.
The railway police issued a seven-page advisory to all its zones giving them a slew of instructions on security preparedness, sources said. The advisory from the Railway Protection Force (RPF) said leave of all its personnel have been cancelled and they have been instructed to be engaged in escorting trains.
