CHANDIGARH: Alleging that the Manohar Lal Khattar government failed to control the situation during the Jat quota stir in Haryana, Congress today demanded President's Rule be imposed in the state and a judicial inquiry by a Supreme Court judge ordered into the incidents of violence.

Haryana Congress Legislature Party, in a meeting chaired by its chief Kiran Choudhry, today passed a resolution in this regard, alleging that the government machinery failed to control the volatile situation.

The party also demanded that strict action be taken against "those BJP leaders who had been making irresponsible and inflammatory statements" and government provide adequate relief to the families of those killed during the stir and people whose properties were damaged.

The resolution said Congress will raise the issue in the budget session of the Assembly starting next week.
