Jaipur, Nov 10 (PTI) Rajasthan Congress has postponed state wide protests against the economic policies of the central government scheduled for Monday in view of prohibitory orders imposed under section 144 of the CrPC in all the districts.

Congress' planned demonstration against the Centre in the districts on November 11 and in the capital on November 13 has been postponed till further orders, Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) General Secretary Mahesh Sharma said.

The section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure prevents assembly of five or more people at one spot.

“Since section 144 of the CrPC is in force in all the districts in view of the Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya case, the party has postponed the plan,” he said.

In a unanimous verdict, the Supreme Court on Saturday paved the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site at Ayodhya, while directing the Centre to allot a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque. PTI SDA AD
