Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday cautioned people against “disruptive elements” spreading rumours to create ill will between communities.
Singh’s appeal to the nation followed his meetings with senior ministers and the Congress core group that reviewed the security situation and the political repercussions of the Ayodhya verdict.
“The correct conclusion... is that status quo will be maintained until the cases are taken up by the Supreme Court”, the Prime Minister said.
“The high court itself has directed the status quo as prevailing till date shall be maintained for three months,” he stressed.
“I know that often it is only a few mischief makers who create divisions in our society,” Singh said, urging people to be vigilant against trouble makers who’d want to disrupt peace.
