In the wake of the supreme court verdict on the Ayodhya dispute, the Bhopal district administration on Saturday cancelled permissions it had granted earlier for organising processions and protests till November 30.
The Supreme Court in a historic verdict on Saturday backed the construction of a Ram temple by a trust at the disputed site in Ayodhya, and ruled that an alternative five-acre plot must be found for a mosque in the Hindu holy town.
An official order stated that "all the permissions issued by the Additional Divisional Magistrate (ADM) or sub- divisional magistrates (SDMs) for the processions, dharnas, protests, rallies etc. between November 9 and November 30 stand cancelled."
The decision was taken in view of the imposition of prohibitory orders under CrPC section 144 in the wake of the apex court ruling.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Kamal Nath cancelled his scheduled visit to Indore on Sunday and Mandla on Saturday.
He visited the Police Headquarters and reviewed security in a meeting with senior officials, including chief secretary SR Mohanty, home secretary SN Mishra and DGP V K Singh.
