Jat Agitation: Section 144 Imposed In Haryana’s Rohtak


Rohtak: In view of a section of Jat leadership threatening to renew the community’s pro-reservation agitation from January 29, Section 144 has been imposed in parts of Rohtak as a precautionary move.

The officials have enforced the ban on assembly of more than four people in about 500 meters from national and state highways, along with railway stations in the city.

A section of the Jat leadership recently announced its move to renew the Jat agitation for reservation which left 30 people dead last year.

The Haryana government and police are keeping a close watch on some Jat leaders, especially those owing allegiance to the All India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti (AIJASS) headed by Yashpal Malik.

Haryana Director General of Police K.P. Singh said earlier that if anyone was found indulged in any illegal activity or causing loss to public property, action would be initiated against him.
