GURUGRAM: Asserting that Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar-led government will not spare anyone who will meddle with the law and order situation in the state, former Officer on Special Duty (OSD) to Haryana state chief Jawahar Yadav on Sunday said that peaceful protest by the Jat Community is welcome, but any nuisance will not be tolerated.
Yadav told ANI, “Most of the Jat institutions and other related groups have distanced themselves from this agitation. And after this, if any person of the community wants to keep forth their opinion in peaceful manner then we welcome that. But nobody will be allowed to mess with the law and order of the state, The Manohar government will not spare anyone who will meddle with the tranquillity in the state.”
“We have given reservation to Jats and are backing them in the court. When last time reservation happened many from the Jat community said that it was not them but some of the anti-social elements which created ruckus. But this time there is no scope of such incidents happening, so they cannot pass the buck this time. They will be held responsible if anything goes wrong,” he added
55 paramilitary forces have been deployed in all districts of the state ahead of the agitation.
Section 144 against unlawful gatherings has also been imposed in Jhajjar, Sonipat, Rohtak, Panipat, Hisar, Fatehabad, Jind and Kaithal which also covers national highways.
