55 companies of paramilitary forces have been deployed in Haryana.  Administration has also issued order banning mobile internet service.

Quoting the state government sources, ANI reported that the ban, which has been brought in effect yesterday will be in effect till further orders.

All telecom service providers have been directed to strictly abide by these orders.

Meanwhile, Haryana chief minister, Manohar Lal Khattar’s former OSD, Jawahar Yadav has said that the government will not spare anyone who is found to be breaking the law in the state.

Yadav said that peaceful protest by the Jat Community was welcome, but any nuisance will not be tolerated.

Yadav told ANI, “Most of the Jat institutions and other related groups have distanced themselves from this agitation. And after this, if any person of the community wants to keep forth their opinion in peaceful manner then we welcome that. But nobody will be allowed to mess with the law and order of the state, The Manohar government will not spare anyone who will meddle with the tranquillity in the state.”
