New Delhi, May 4 (UNI) The law and order situation in riot-hit Vadodara forced the central government to approach the Supreme Court for a stay on the Gujarat High Court order for removal of religious structures obstructing road traffic, Union Home Secretary V K Duggal said.

The decision to appeal against the High Court order was taken after consultations with the Law Ministry, Mr Duggal told reporters here.

''The Home Ministry consulted the Law Ministry and decided to move the Supreme Court in view of the law and order situation and the potential it had,'' he said.

The Supreme Court today stayed the High Court order on an appeal filed by Additional Solicitor-General Gopal Subramaniam.
