Haryana: In Haryana, opposition parties appealed to the state government to bring a bill in the state assembly to provide reservation to different sections. Leaders of various parties who attended the all-party meeting in Chandigarh have appealed the protesters to end their agitation.

Meeting was summoned by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar. All the leaders appealed the government to maintain law and order and peaceful atmosphere in the state. Talking to newsmen after the meeting, the Chief Minister hoped that agitators will end their agitation today as all leaders had requested them to do so. The chief minister said that a committee formed to study the whole issue will submit its report by March 31st.

Normal life has been badly hit because of the agitation, which has spread to more parts of the state following the failure of talks between the community leaders and the government to break the deadlock. Section 144 has been imposed in Karnal also. The protests have disrupted road and rail traffic with the worst hit being the Rohtak-Jhajjar region, the epicentre of the protests, besides Bhiwani, Sonipat and Hisar.
