CHANDIGARH: Following the threat of another upheaval by the Jat community over reservation, the Haryana Government is currently holding talks with the Jat leaders in Chandigarh.
Akhil Bhartiya Jat Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti (ABJASS) members and their national president Yashpal Malik are present in the meeting with the officials of the Haryana Government.
According to reports, the Jat leaders would also be meeting Haryana Chief Secretary Deepinder Singh Dhesi and Director General of Police (DGP) Y.P. Singhal to put forth their demands.
The Jat leaders had convened a meeting on March 14 and had handed the government a 72-hour ultimatum to fulfill seven demands.
Meanwhile, the state government has blocked internet services in Rohtak.
Rohtak Superintendent of Police (SP) Shashank Anand told ANI that the action had been taken as a precautionary measure.
The Haryana Government has stepped up security in many towns as the deadline issued by the Jat community to accept their demand for quotas ended yesterday.
