Processions banned in State on Sept 24, 25

Briefing reporters after an all-party meeting in Bangalore, Chief Minister Yeddyurappa said security will be strengthened across the State to deal with any law and order problem that may arise after the verdict.

He appealed people to ignore rumours and curb spread of disinformation through SMS by avoiding forwarding text messages sent by rumour mongers. He sought public cooperation in maintaining peace.

“Since it is a court order all should abide by it and if anyone has any reservation they can always seek legal recourse”, Yeddyurappa maintained. He said prohibitory orders will be clamped wherever necessary. The police will take stern action against anyone who takes law into their hands. The police have already started rounding up anti-social elements as a precautionary measure.

Leaders of the Opposition in the two Houses of Legislature, Siddaramaiah and Motamma, KPCC President R V Deshpande, JD(S) leader M C Nanaiah, Cabinet ministers, DG and IG Ajai Kumar Singh and senior police officers participated in the meeting.

The Chief Minister met religious leaders at his home office ‘Krishna’ later in the evening. Representatives of Hindu mutts  including Adichunchanagiri and Suttur mutts, Muslim and Christian organisations participated in the meeting.
