Jat leaders to hold ‘jail bharo’ movement in Haryana today, section 144 imposed in Jind
Akhil Bhartiya Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti (ABJASS), which spearheaded the quota stir in February, extended their support to the 'jail bharo' movement.
Jind: Demanding the release of those arrested during the quota stir, Jat leaders have threatened to hold 'jail bharo' movement from Sunday.
Keeping security measures in mind, the district administration have imposed prohibitory orders here for two days.
District Magistrate Vinay Singh had said they have imposed section 144 of CrPC for two days in the Jind municipality area to prevent any untoward incident during the 'jail bharo' movement.
Meanwhile, police have taken adequate security measures and have appointed senior district officials as duty magistrate to control the situation.
The guesthouse owners have been instructed to not allow gathering of people in Dharamshalas.
Meanwhile, Akhil Bhartiya Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti (ABJASS), which spearheaded the quota stir in February, extended their support to the 'jail bharo' movement being organised by Jat Yuva Ekta Manch.
ABJASS district president Captain Bhoop Singh claimed that the police have been arresting innocent youths and the families of those who were killed in the stir have also not received adequate compensation yet.
That is why the Samiti decided to support the 'jail bharo' movement and ABJASS members would tomorrow take part in it at Ikkis Chungi here, Singh said.
