Both Hisar and Rohtak are high-stakes constituencies, considered strongholds of Bhajan Lal (Indian National Lok Dal) and Bhupinder Singh Hooda (Congress) families. The BJP has now named candidates for all the 10 Lok Sabha seats in Haryana, where polling will be held in the sixth phase on May 12.
The CBI had recently filed a chargesheet against 51 accused, including an advocate named Sudeep Kalkal, for the attack on the house of Abhimanyu but kept the investigation open to unearth the larger conspiracy.
As the violent quota stir by Jats in Haryana enters the eighth day with the death toll touching 11, there are similar blockades every 5 km on the way to Rohtak and Jhajjar, Ground Zero of the agitation.
Rohtak, Feb 23 (ANI): The traders, whose shops were either burnt down or looted during the quota stir by the Jat community in Rohtak, Haryana, took to the streets and urged the government to compensate them for their losses at the earliest. A shopkeeper, Gulshan Dang, said, "I want to urge the Narendra Modi-led government to compensate our losses 100 percent without any delay." Another shopkeeper, Anil Kumar said that he is left with no source of income after his two showrooms were burnt down by the protestors. He asked PM Modi and Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar that why are common people suffering who don't relate to Jat demands.
