Plea in NGT against Amit Shah's bike rally in Jind
A petition has been filed in National Green Tribunal (NGT) against an upcoming rally of BJP Chief Amit Shah in Jind (Haryana) wherein one lakh motorbikes are expected to gather. The NGT has issued notice returnable on Feburary 13 looking at the urgency of the case directing Government of Haryana to file an affidavit in reply.
The Haryana government has decided to seek 150 companies of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) ahead of a scheduled visit by BJP chief Amit Shah on February 15, as the Jat community has decided to go on an agitation.
The Akhil Bhartiya Jat Aarkashan Sanghrash Samiti (AIJASS) led by Yashpal Malik has announced that it will disrupt a bikers rally during Shah's visit, scheduled to be held at Jind. The agitators have planned to reach Jind in tractor-trolleys.
Ahead of the rally, the Haryana Government has announced to withdraw 70 FIRs registered against 822 Jat agitators in connection with the February 2016 Jat quota stir violence.
