Talking to reporters here, AICC general secretary in-charge for Haryana Shakeel Ahmed said, "Modi had picked up Khattar as Haryana chief minister.He totally botched up the issue and could not handle it because he is a person with no experience in administration and public life.

"Similar situations twice were handled well when Congress Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hood ran the state earlier."

There have been violent clashes at the Satlok ashram of the self-styled godman in Haryana. After evacuating close to 15,000 of his followers, police was preparing for the final assault to arrest Rampal from his ashram where four women died mysteriously and two others in hospital in the midst of a showdown.

Chief Minister Khattar said the operation to nab Rampal will "continue till he is arrested".
