Ayodhya, Nov 22: The Uttar Pradesh police has beefed up security in Ayodhya, particularly near the disputed site, for the weekend programmes of the VHP and Shiv Sena.
While VHP, in support of the RSS, would hold a Dharam Sabha to demand a legislation on the early construction of Ram Temple at the disputed site on November 25, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thakre would be visiting the city for two days starting November 24.
In order to comply with the Supreme Court’s order and to maintain law and order, the UP government has made elaborate security arrangements in the temple town with deployment of anti-terror squads, additional police and para-military forces, including the RAF, and also use drone cameras to monitor the crowd.
The VHP has claimed that over one lakh people, including saints and sadhus, would attend the 'Dharam Sabha', while around 5,000 people mostly from Maharashtra would accompany the Shiv Sena chief in Ayodhya. The event will be held at Baade Bhaktmal ground on the Parikarma marg. (UNI)
