Situation won't go out of hand: PC

Addressing a press conference, Chidambaram said in a way the delay in judgment has an unintended benefit. “It has given an opportunity to a number of parties, groups and individuals to reiterate that they will respect the verdict of the court”, he said.

The minister said senior BSP leader and Rajya Sabha member Satish Chandra Mishra spoke to him and was satisfied on the deployment of forces in the state. The Centre has identified “four sensitive spots” in the state and rushed adequate forces to the state.

Chidambaram said India has moved on since 1992 with a new generation having a new world view. The Minister said he did not see any problem arising out of Thursday’s court ruling. He said all parties including the BJP would respect the court verdict.

Asked whether security arrangement as set in motion now would have prevented the December 6, 1992 demolition of Babri structure, Chidambaram said “let us leave 1992 behind, that is history. I was not there, you were not there (then).”

The Minister said the main parties have reposed their faith in the due process of law. He appealed to all sections of the people of the country to cooperate with the government “and uphold the values that are dear to our country”.
