Jalandhar, November 9
Hours before the Supreme Court was expected to deliver its verdict in the Ayodhya case, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday morning reviewed the state’s law and order situation, and appealed to the people to remain calm under all circumstances.
The Chief Minister, who is here for the historic Kartarpur Corridor inauguration and to lead the first Jatha to the revered Gurdwara, discussed the situation with DGP Dinkar Gupta and other senior officers.
Captain Amarinder directed the officers to remain on high alert and take all steps to ensure that the state’s peace and harmony is not disturbed at any cost.
According to an official spokesperson, the Chief Minister asked the police and other agencies to keep tabs on suspected trouble-makers, and to take immediate and stern action against anyone found trying to disturb Punjab’s law and order.
Peace is of utmost importance and nobody would be allowed to disturb it under any circumstances, said the Chief Minister.
Captain Amarinder appealed to the people to maintain peace and not do anything that could create law and order problems in the state. Whatever the court’s judgement, everyone should accept it and abide by it, he added.
