Gurgaon: Ahead of the proposed Jat agitation on June 5, Gurgaon district administration and police officers on Thursday held a meeting with representatives of various Jat organisations and appealed them to maintain peace and harmony in the district.

Addressing the meeting, Deputy Commissioner TL Satyaprakash said that by blocking roads or railway tracks, no community can get sympathy from general public, on the contrary, the public gets irritated and they do not form good opinion about the community.

He appealed the people from Jat community to not get swayed by rumours and to inform the district administration and Gurgaon police if any issue of agitation surfaces.

The Jat representatives assured that peace of Gurgaon would not be disturbed and maintainance of peace would be ensured.

Recollecting the Jat agitation during February in which Gurgaon remained unscathed, Satyaprakash said this time also the Gurgaon administration expects cooperation from all sections of society particularly the Jat community for maintaining peace and harmony.

Meanwhile, Gurgaon police will keep surveillance on social media sites and Whastapp to check the spread of rumours and also take action against such anti-social elements.

"The DGP of Haryana has directed all the district police of Haryana including Gurgaon to take action on such culprits. The residents and Jat unions should not take any rumour messages on Whatsapp and social media sites seriously and inform to nearby police station if messages were found," said Gurgaon Police Commissioner Navdeep Singh Dahiya.

Satyaprakash said that if the representatives of Jat community do want to demonstration and protest, the district administration is ready to demarcate places where they can do so as organizing peaceful demonstration is permitted in a democracy.

For this, they need to inform the administration in advance and take prior permission, so that necessary advisory can be issued to the general public to avoid inconvenience.

He reminded that National Security Act has already been implemented in the state and no community or group should resort to such activities, persuading the administration and police to use force.

DCP (Headquarter and west) Balwan Singh Rana said that no agitators would be allowed to stage protest near the railway lines or national highways.
 However, the Jat Sangharsh Samiti, has decided to postponed its agitation till?July 21 and wait for the decision of the court.
