Violence spreads like wild fire

In the wake of political unrest in the country we come across disturbance from Parliament to Universities under the guise of caste, creed and religion. After JNU we witnessed Haryana on the boil as the quota stir spreads like wild fire and many more deaths were reported. Road blocks round Chandigarh compelled the Centre to force airdrop of Jawans. Rail link through the state of Haryana is crippled totally and the Railways face a Rs.200 crore hit in the face of chaos and confusion prevailing in and around the place. At a time when the Government is stubborn and appear not to bow down to pressure Jat protesters shut water supply to Delhi. While there was no violence in Gurgaon, the city virtually turned into a fortress. Curfews were clamped on Sonepat, Jind and Jhajjar Towns. Life was hit in most parts of the state with shops, offices and schools closed. Decoding the Jat quota conundrum the Government is trying to buy peace through the conventional methods but the situation is going out of the way and needs to be tackled in the best way possible.
