Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath met Samajwadi Party Patron and former Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav who was accompanied by Shivpal Singh Yadav. CM Yogi reached Mulayam Singh’s residence on Wednesday. Here he greeted Mulayam Singh Yadav on Diwali. During this time, the politicians emphasised that the rivalry between them in politics should not affect the interaction between them.

The chief minister’s meeting with Mulayam Singh is being interpreted in various ways, more so because Yogi spent a lot of time talking to the SP patriarch. But the information available with Sirf News make it clear that the meeting was all about Ayodhya. Yogi said that the decision on the Ram temple has to come within 15 days even as speculations in political circles about the meeting are rife.

In the backdrop of this meeting, Uttar Pradesh Police have been put on high alert to ensure law and order across the state ahead of the Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya issue. The police are monitoring messages on social media, maintaining regular contacts with the Muslim clergy and Hindu priests, keeping a vigil on posters, pamphlets, leaflets and other propaganda material. They are also compiling data containing names of activists of both communities. “Meetings of peace committees are being regularly held at police stations. These committees comprise influential persons from both communities,” a senior police officer said.

No policeman is getting a leave except in unavoidable circumstances until 30 November.

Chief Minister Yogi spoke to Mulayam Singh in the absence of SP president Akhilesh Yadav. The chief minister inquired about Mulayam Yadav’s health. Thereafter, Yogi reached the residence of former Governor Kalyan Singh to meet him.

The chief minister said that the month of November-December has always been important for Ayodhya.

Mulayam Singh Yadav earned the epithet of “Mulla Mulayam” this day exactly three decades ago. His government had instructed the police to open fire at karsevaks who had gathered in Ayodhya as part of the Ram Janmabhoomi movement. Sixteen volunteers of the movement were killed in police firing on 30 October and 2 November 1990.

Kalyan Singh subsequently emerged as a staunch Hindu firebrand leader.

The chief minister said that the incident of Ayodhya 30 years ago is still fresh in the minds of people.
