Union HRD Minister Arjun Singh had called PM P.V.Narasimha Rao from the station master's room at New Delhi Railway station on Dec. 3, 1992.
When he called the prime minister, he was in a very agitated mood. He wanted to know why Singh was going to Ayodhya without his permission. To this, Singh responded that he was free to travel to any part of the country and was going to Ayodhya to see what exactly was happening there. The prime minister then asked Singh to meet the Uttar Pradesh chief minister, Kalyan Singh, while he was in Lucknow to find out what he was planning to do.
