New Delhi: Congress on Friday demanded a judicial probe into the violence and lawlessness that crippled Haryana during the Jat agitation for reservations.
“The manner in which violence and lawlessness was at its prime in Haryana, it shows the direction and state of BJP the government,” said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala while addressing mediapersons.
“The BJP government in the past 15 months has played the politics of hate and divide in Haryana. The chief minister and the ministers of Haryana kept giving explosive statements. Because of this, the situation became very serious and things went out of control. When situation became worse, they remained mere spectators,” he added.
Surjewala said Congress demands a judicial probe into the entire incident. “Mobs don’t have any religion or caste. They kept destroying public and private property and the government remained silent. We demand a judicial probe into the Haryana incident.”
