The Army has been deployed in more cities after nine people, including a policeman, died in the violence. Sources in the BJP admitted state intelligence had failed to get the “right information” on the scale of the agitation. “Initial information was there would be a few thousand, so there was no preparation to handle the lakhs who turned out,” said a party leader. BJP leaders are also worried about the threat of an agitation by Jats in Haryana, another party-ruled state.
