The Haryana Government has ordered all DCs and SPs to deploy adequate police personnel at vulnerable points in view of the Jat agitation and ensure that normal life is not disrupted and all essential services continue uninterrupted in the state. Duty Magistrates should be deployed at all places and videography carried out to ensure that peace is not disturbed. These directions were issued by the Additional Chief Secretary, Home, Mr. Ram Niwas, while addressing DCs, Commissioners of Police and SPs through video-conferencing, here today. Planning has been done to divert traffic wherever required and adequate paramilitary forces are available in the state, he added.
Everyone in a democracy has the right to express his opinion in a peaceful manner but he cautioned that any attempt to disturb the law-and-order situation in the state would not be tolerated.Mr Ram Niwas directed the SPs to resolve the grievances raised by the agitators, and urged the Jat leaders to meet the SP concerned along with evidence, if any. Action would be taken against those found guilty, irrespective of caste. Investigation in such cases would be carried out within 24 hours. The Director General of Police has also directed the SPs in this regard, he added. A four-member state-level committee comprising ADGP (Law and Order), Additional Advocate General and two representatives of the agitators had been constituted for redressal of grievances, he said.
