High Court blames Khattar govt for its failure to prevent violence August 26, 2017

Taking serious note on the inability of the Haryana government to handle the violence yesterday in Panchkula, the Punjab and Haryana High court on Saturday came down heavily on the Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP government, saying “this was a political surrender to allure vote bank”.  A full bench of the High Court comprising acting Chief Justice S. Singh Saron, Justice Avneesh Jhingan and Justice Surya Kant, also said that  since Haryana Chief Minister  had given a statement that anti-social elements created a problem, then why was the government unable to prevent their entry for the past seven days. The HC  bench has made these remarks while hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by a Panchkula resident raising law and order concerns as a large number of people had  entered the district despite prohibitory orders.

To much aghast thousands of dera followers had yesterday damaged the government and public property, burnt many vehicles include media and also attacked general public, police persons and media persons. All  this happened due to inability of the state government to handle the situation. The state government has special soft corner for the dera due to vote bank politics. This is not all, the violence has claimed 32 lives and left over 250 injured. Thousands of Dera Sacha Sauda devotees  went on a rampage in Panchkula on Friday after the dera chief, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh,  convicted in the rape case by the CBI special court. In addition to Panchkula, the violence spread to other towns in Haryana and parts of Punjab as well. Few incidents of arson were also reported in Delhi.

Punjab’s Advocate General Atul Nanda said that the bench has taken serious cognizance of yesterday’s violence. “The court observed that the loss due to the violence is a loss for nation and the taxpayer. This loss will be compensated by those who are responsible for it. Mr. Nanda also added that  the court has directed the dera sacha sauda  to give its list of properties and has been instructed not to sell or transfer its properties till further orders. The court has also directed the Deputy Commissioners of Punjab and Haryana to collect claim petitions from people who have suffered losses due to the violence and submit it to respective advocate generals, who will then place it before the court,” he added. The court has fixed the next date of hearing for August 29.
