Chandigarh, April 14–The Haryana Government has decided to constitute a three-member committee to find out facts about the involvement of people in the untoward incidents that happened during the Bharat Bandh on April 2, 2018.

            The committee will review all cases registered by the police on that day and if any evidence is found action will be taken against the culprits and the innocent will be released. An IAS officer, an IPS officer and a public representative will be members of the committee.

            Referring to the April 2 incidents, he said a section of the society was demonstrating peacefully in the state when some anti-social elements infiltrated and tried to disturb the law-and-order situation. The police registered cases against about 100 persons.

 Mr Manohar Lal said the state government would soon constitute the Haryana Scheduled Castes Commission and advertise for all posts meant for Scheduled Castes at one go to ensure clearance of the backlog.

 Besides, efforts would be made to ensure that these posts are filled up on a regular basis.

Financial assistance under the Mukhyamantri Vivah Shagun Yojna has been increased to Rs 51,000.
