The control room has been set up amid threats from the Jat community to launch a fresh agitation from June 5 for reservation and against registration of criminal cases against their leaders in Haryana.

Central forces have been deployed in many sensitive districts and prohibitory orders under Section 144 at few places have been issued.

Thirty people were killed in the large-scale violence during Jat quota agitation in Haryana in February this year. Property worth hundreds of crores of rupees was also damaged during the stir.

Last week, Punjab and Haryana High Court had stayed the reservation for Jats and five other communities provided by the Haryana government under a newly-carved Backward Classes (C) category.
