Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan expressed the confidence that the Allahabad High Court verdict on the Ayodhya-Babri Masjid title deed dispute tomorrow would be accepted by all sections of the people with calmness and dignity.

 

In a media statement, Dr. JP recalled that people have always maintained peace and harmony and it was the political parties, which whipped up prejudice and violence among communities off and on. Today, political parties are showing commendable restraint. That India has remained a secular, democratic country despite occasional problems is a tribute to our freedom fighters and constitution builders.

 

Dr. JP said that India is today poised for unprecedented economic growth and the people’s focus for the next quarter century should be on promoting economic growth, eliminating poverty and sustaining environment. Whoever tries to undermine the goals by dividing people based on caste, language, region and religion will be betraying the country. The youth should remain on guard and ensure that all institutions behaved at this historic moment.
