ROHTAK: : Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar will visit Rohtak on Tuesday to take stock of the situation in the town, following which he will head to the national capital to meet a high-powered government panel for deliberations on the issue.

Khattar along with state agriculture minister O.P. Dhankar and state finance minister Captain Abhimanyu will head for Rohtak this morning.

The Chief Minister has been appealing to the people of the state to maintain law and order and call off the agitation, as the state government was ready to hear their demands.

"No one will be benefited by damaging public property. I urge everyone not to be swayed by unfounded rumours and maintain peace in the state," he said in his appeal earlier.

The state government has also decided to immediately assess the role of all officers and officials of both civil and police administration for any act of omission and commission during the agitation.

The decisions to this effect were taken in a meeting of the state cabinet which met under the chairmanship of Khattar yesterday.

Later in the day, the Bharatiya Janata Party-appointed committee headed by Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu, has called Khattar for deliberations to ascertain the state's views on the subject.
