Police briefly detains Haryana Congress chief Ashok Tanwar

On Thursday, Haryana Cheif Minister Manohar Lal Khattar himself rode a bike to review the arrangements for "Yuva Hunkar Rally" which will be addressed by BJP chief Amit Shah.

BJP leaders claimed that over a lakh bikers participated in the event, seen as an attempt by the BJP to consolidate its hold on Jind and adjoining areas including Rohtak and Sonepat, strongholds of the predominant Jat community.

"Khattar government has no bias, it believes in "Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas", he said. The INLD has said its workers will wave black flags at the BJP chief and hundreds of security personnel, including those from the Haryana Police and para-military forces, have been stationed in Jind, about 200 km from Chandigarh, to ensure there is no disruption.

The Congress leader claimed that almost 200 party workers were detained along with him.

He countered Congress appeal to show the progress report saying, "The Congress has said that when Amit Shah comes, he should come with a progress report of four years". He said in 2018-19 Union budget, a bold decision of fixing support prices for crops at 50 percent higher than the cost of production has been made.

The Haryana Chief Minister also urged the Jat agitation leaders to withdraw their protest against the rally.
