The Haryana government on Friday suspended mobile Internet services in 13 districts in the state for the next three days apprehending breach of law and order problems in view of two public rallies by a Jat body and ruling BJP’s Kurukshetra MP on November 26.
The orders to this effect were issued by Haryana’s Additional Chief Secretary (Home Department) S S Prasad.
“The order is issued to prevent any disturbance of peace and public order in the jurisdiction of state of districts as mentioned and shall be in force for the next three days..,” the order said.
Jat leader Sandeep Bharti, who led the protesters, was demanding cancellation of Saini’s rally.
Bharti alleged that Saini was known for his anti-Jat rants. He also accused Saini of spreading communal hatred by making inflammatory and derogatory statements against Jats.
Jat leader Yashpal Malik had earlier announced to hold a rally at Jassia in Rohtak district on November 26.
