New Delhi, Nov 10 : It is true the credit for maintaining peace and harmony post the historic Ayodhya verdict should go to the common people and key stakeholders for their restrains, but on ground, detailed works and effective monitoring of things by Home Minister Amit Shah did the trick.
Mr Shah was ably assisted by National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and also the likes of top officials including Union Home Secretary Ajay K Bhalla and Director of Intelligence Bureau (IB) Arvind Kumar - who attended a series of meetings on Saturday once the verdict was delivered by the five-member bench of the Supreme Court. Sources said Mr Shah also telephoned a number of Chief Ministers personally including those belonging to his party.
Home Minister also spoke to Congress Chief Ministers and a few belonging to regional parties. Mr Shah also reportedly cancelled a few meetings and prior commitments. In fact, carrying out the process, NSA Doval interacted with a number of eminent Hindu and Muslim religious leaders on Sunday.
"All the participants reposed full faith in the rule of law and Constitution of India," a statement later said here adding the leaders resolved to honour the decision of the Supreme Court and appealed to all countrymen to abide by it. (UNI)
