Yogi calls for restraint ahead of Ayodhya verdict

Agency News

Ahead of the much-awaited verdict on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath, has asked his ministers to refrain from commenting on the issue.

The Yogi directed his cabinet ministers not to make any controversial statements ahead of the Supreme Court’s verdict on the issue before November 17. 'CM Yogi Adityanath told us that we should not make unnecessary comments on the issue," a state minister said.

Yogi Adityanath issued a diktat for his ministers against making any statement on the matter irrespective of the ruling in anybody’s favour. The diktat is part of the broader programme started by the Bharatiya Janata Party on the matter.

Mr. Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, the Union Minister of Minority Affairs, said in Prayagraj there should be no celebrations over the sensitive issue.

'The verdict might favour any  community but there should absolutely be no celebrations which hurt the sentiments of the other side,' Mr. Naqvi said.

He appealed to both Hindu and Muslims to maintain calm and not engage in celebrations or behaviour that irks the other side.
