New Delhi: With the pro-reservation protest intensifying in Haryana, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has appealed to the people to maintain peace and brotherhood in the state.

“I appeal to the people of Haryana to maintain peace and brotherhood in the state. Every problem can be solved through talks and discussions,” Gandhi tweeted on his official Twitter handle.

The Army has been called in the state to quell the ongoing Jat agitation in Haryana which took a violent turn.

At least three protesters were reportedly killed in the clashes.

Around 150 trains have been cancelled. There have been fire incidents at Jhajjar station.

The agitating members of the Jat community are demanding their inclusion in the OBC category and thereby reservation in government jobs. (ANI)
