Delhi Police is bracing itself for a "long window" of heightened vigil with visits of high profile foreign leaders, terror threat to the national capital and a possible Assembly election all set to keep it on its toes till February next year.
Police kept a strict vigil across Tamil Nadu on Saturday on the occasion of the 22nd anniversary of the Babri mosque demolition, which passed off peacefully in the state, even as protests were held in different parts of the state by both Muslim and Hindu groups.
Expressing unhappiness over the politicisation of the Babri case, Mohammad Hashim Ansari,who has been fighting the case since 1959, said that he doesn't want to pursue the matter any further and wants 'Ram Lalla' (infant Ram) to be free.
Hitting out at DMK chief M Karunanidhi for raking up the Babri mosque demolition, BJP on Friday demanded to know why he had not spoken about it when his party was part of its led National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
Congress and Opposition BJP on Friday sparred over a sting operation on Babri Masjid demolition, which the latter termed as "Congress-sponsored" while the ruling party demanded action against those involved.
Communist Party of India ( CPI) leader Gurudas Dasgupta on Friday said President Pranab Mukherjee could have cautioned the government rather than attempting to get public support and appreciation over his remark that `state-sponsored terrorism (from or by Pakistan) cannot be accepted`.
