The security was also tightened at the residence of former Chief Minister of Haryana Bhoopender Singh Hooda. Yashpal Malik has said that 19th Feb. will be observed as ‘Balidan Divas’ for those lost their lives in last year Jat Agitation.Reuters INLD which is haryana’s main opposition party is supporting Jat Agitation. State Minister Anil Vij said that the opposition is trying to flare up the issue because they are not able to digest the dharnas in peaceful manner.
