March 4:Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday, said the BJP government in Haryana handled the situation well during the Jat quota agitation.
“Whatever the state government had to do, they did.They did well,” he told reporters when asked whether the Manohar Khattar government failed to control the violence that led to the killing of 30 people and destruction of property.
Singh, however, refused to comment on allegations of rape and molestation by Jat quota agitators near an eatery in Murthal on Delhi-Ambala highway, saying, “Law and order is a state subject.” Thirty people were killed during the Jat quota stir in Haryana late last month. A total of 713 FIRs have been registered and 133 people arrested in this connection. The Haryana government has also set up a committee consisting of three women officers, including a DIG, for receiving any complaint of rape of women in Murthal near Sonepat.
