New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
on Tuesday conferred with his senior colleagues on how to handle
the possible fallout of the Allahabad High Court judgement
next month in the original title suit of Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri
Mosque dispute.

Singh discussed the issue with Finance Minister Pranab
Mukherjee, Home Minister P Chidambaram and Defence Minister A
K Antony, sources said.
The Uttar Pradesh government has already sought from the
Centre additional security forces to tackle possible law and
order situation that may arise after the verdict.

The state government has chalked out a security plan and
sought an additional 4,500 paramilitary personnel from the
Centre.

"As per the special plan chalked out in this regard,
eight ADGs and five IGs have been given additional 16 ranges
in the state, besides a DG has been nominated as special
observer," state government officials said earlier.
The DGP has asked these officers to report to their
respective ranges in the first week of September, they said.

The district level officers have also been asked to
identify sensitive and hyper-sensitive areas in their
respective region, they said. Leaves of policemen have also
been cancelled.
