Security Tightened To Keep Check On Jat Agitation

Jat leaders on Sunday began a fresh quota agitation in Haryana even as over 5000 paramilitary personnel were deployed along with large contingents of the state police to maintain law and order. Jat leaders in Jassia village of Rohtak district, the epicentre of violence during the February stir, began the agitation by performing a ‘havan’. Jats owing allegiance to All India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti (AIJASS), which gave the call for the protest, have pitched a tent along the Rohtak-Panipat highway just outside Jassia. AIJASS is holding dharnas in 15 of the state’s 21 districts.
