Jhajjar, February 13

Deputy Commissioner (DC) Sonal Goel has directed all gram panchayats to organise thikri pehra (community watch) from February 14 to 18 in view of BJP chief Amit Shah’s Jind rally on February 15 and the ‘balidan divas’ to be organised by the Akhil Bhartiya Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti (ABJASS) at Rashalwala Chowk here on February 18.

She has recommended to the government for the suspension of internet services within 15 km of Rashalwala Chowk on February 18 as a precautionary measure to prevent romours on social media.

The DC issued the directives while addressing a meeting of district administrative officials at the Mini Secretariat here today to review law and order situation in the district. She also asked the officials to discharge their duty with full sensitivity and coordination to deal with the situation in an efficient manner.

“Under the Gram Panchayat Act 1994, all the gram panchayats will be responsible to oranise thikri pehra in their village by forming a team of village youths for the protection of public and private property. The SDM and BDPO concerned will also be accountable for getting the orders executed in their area. The order would remain in force from February 14 to 18,” said Goel.

It is learnt that the ABJASS has decided to organise ‘balidan divas’ function at Rashalwala Chowk here on February 18 hence there is an urgent need of taking all possible steps for strengthening security arrangements and maintaining law and order situation in the district, she said.

Earlier, a mock drill was organised at the Police Lines here yesterday to make preparations for dealing with any adverse situation in the district. Besides the police, officials of civil administration also participated in it.
