“People are not allowed to convey any form of political meeting tomorrow (Friday) either overtly or covertly, everybody should go about his lawful business, if you are a farmer go to your farm, if you are a trader move to your market and continue your business.

“But no political gathering is allowed tomorrow (Friday) for or against the judgment, if you are against the judgment let it be in your mind but don’t come openly to say you are against it.  If you are in favour of it, be in favour of it in your mind, don’t come in any public place or anywhere to celebrate it because you are likely to be attacked by your opponent.” The CP Said

CP Dalijan noted that officers and men of the command have embark on show of Force to deter people from causing trouble, saying the command will continue the show of Force through the state as a combined team of all security operatives will be on ground to deal decisively with anyone found wanting in causing trouble.
