Ram Rahim convicted: Khattar to stay on as Haryana CM

By Vicky

The BJP has made it clear that Manohar Lal Khattar will stay as the Chief Minister of Haryana. In a meeting chaired by BJP boss, Amit Shah along with the Harayana state general state secretary Dr Anil Jain, it was decided that Khattar will not be replaced or summoned to Delhi for any clarifications. The meeting was held in the aftermath of violence that erupted following the conviction of Gurmeet Ram Rahim in a rape case.

Ram Rahim convicted: Khattar to stay on as Haryana CM

This is not the time to indulge in politics. Instead the focus would be to maintain peace and take control of the situation, a senior BJP leader informed OneIndia. It is not the time to buckle under the pressure of the opposition, the leader also informed.

The BJP also took consideration of the fact that the Haryana government had managed to bring the situation under control in three hours. To say that the Prime Minister was unhappy with Khattar is misplaced, the BJP leader also informed. No plea to remove Khattar has been received from the Haryana state unit of the BJP, the leader also said.

For now the focus is on the sentencing that would be read out on Monday. The Centre is extending all help to the state to ensure that law and order is control, a senior Home Ministry official informed.
