Mangaluru, Nov 8: A peace meeting was held at the district deputy commissioner's office here on Thursday November 7, which was chaired by deputy commissioner of Dakshina Kannada district, Sindhu Rupesh. The meeting was aimed at seeking cooperation from all classes of people to maintain peaceful environment in the coming days.

As Ayodhya verdict is expected to be delivered in a few days, upcoming Eid Milad celebration and Mangaluru city corporation council election are approaching, the district administration took up the initiative to conduct this peace meeting where several religious leaders, social activists and others took part.

DC Sindhu Rupesh said, "We need to maintain peaceful environment in the coming days. District administration gives complete assurance to resolve each and every issue. If someone comes across any issues, they need to bring them to the notice of district administration so that we can resolve them immediately," she stated.

"If any programme is conducted, Mangaluru City Corporation will monitor as the model code of conduct is in force. We request the general public to cooperate with the administration," she said.

City police commissioner Dr P S Harsha, said,"Ayodhya judgement will be announced soon. As everyone needs to respect the judgement, which is just the interpretation of law, no one should celebrate or protest over the decision to see that peace and tranquillity is maintained. The organizations need to urge youngsters not to celebrate or protest relating to the judgement. Social media has become an opinion maker tool, and if anyone posts comments in social media, the leaders of organizations or religious leaders should urge them not to post inciting comments in social media. If anyone crosses the limits then you need to inform police so that we can take action."

He also said, "This year, as the government will not be officially celebrating Tipu Jayanthi, we have no objection to celebrate it inside the four walls, but organizing public festivities and celebrating grandly in public, conducting procession etc are restricted. Even while putting up banners make sure that it is permitted by election officer," he advised.

Bajrang Dal leader, Sharan Pumpwell, said, "We have strictly ordered our representatives not to celebrate or protest over the Ayodhya judgement as we need to bow to the court's judgement. Even we have urged not to post any comments in social media or give any media statements for the judgement."

"We urge police department to increase the manpower in areas where there is possibility of eruption of violence, as there are such sensitive areas. We also urge not to allow celebration of Tipu Jayanthi in any manner as earlier it had claimed several lives, giving rise to protests. So it is better not to allow to celebrate in order to maintain peace and harmony," he said.

Social activist Hanumantha Kamath, said, "The police department needs to conduct such peace meetings once in every three months in every police station limits."
