Meanwhile, in Hisar, the dharna by Jats near Ramayan village was addressed by various leaders of the community on the second day of the agitation amid elaborate security arrangements.
Ram Bhagat Malik, spokesperson of AIJASS claimed that the dharna would continue in a peaceful manner.
While addressing a gathering, the leaders said those Jat or Khap leaders “who betrayed the community by siding with the government this time also, will have to face the consequences.
The community will teach them a lesson. They have been trying to weaken the agitation”.
Notably, Rohtak and some of its neighbouring districts, including Sonipat and Jhajjar had been worst-hit by the violence which broke out during last year’s Jat stir.
Apart from the quota demand, the agitators are demanding release of arrested Jat youths from jails, withdrawal of cases registered during last year’s agitation and grant of government jobs to the kin of youths killed and those injured during last year s stir.
