UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday issued an appeal asking people not to see the final Ayodhya verdict by the Supreme Court as a victory or defeat.
The Chief Minister has asked people not to believe rumours and work together for peace. He warned of strict action against those who violate law.
He said that his government was committed to maintain peace in the state at all costs and officials concerned have been given necessary instructions in this regard.
Meanwhile, the state government has closed all schools, colleges, educational institutions and training centres from November 9 to 11.
This has been done in view of the Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya issue which will be announced on Saturday morning.
