CHANDIGARH: Eight people were killed as violence gripped Haryana on Saturday, with the agitation of Jats demanding OBC status spreading from the hinterland to the heart of Gurgaon despite heavy Army deployment.
The deaths took the toll to nine since Friday. Over 80 people have been admitted to various hospitals in the state, 30 of them on Saturday. By evening, curfew had been imposed in Sonipat, Rohtak, Gohana, Jhajjar and Bhiwani.
The day's worst clash took place in Jhajjar where a mob set fire to an electricity substation and attacked an Army column. The jawans opened fire in retaliation, killing one of the protesters on the spot. Six others died in hospital. Another man was killed in Kaithal.

This violent strike for quota? It is in 21st century? looks like a complete black mail by least people, who do not want work at the same time want earn easily (without working for penny). what a state we are it. it is shame in front of world.
These antinationals have guts to attack security forces? They should all be shot down. Is govt sleeping? Why are they letting these scums insult our soldiers?
Punjab should demand return of Chandigarh to Punjab. Haryana a state of Right Wing Bigots does not deserve Punjab's Capital
India burning.. Modi forgot to tweet....
These Jats are disgrace to the nation. They are called Taliban of INDIA. These politicians are using them for upcoming election. There should be no reservation at all. They should remove all cast quota system. If you want to give quota then give it on the basis of rich and poor but not on cast.
Anyone who dares to attack our public property or army should be shot without any hesitation
SHOOT AT SIGHT WHY WAIT... APLLY CHINESE METHODS IN 1 DAY THINGS WILL BE PERFECT.. CATCH THE. LEADER AND KILL HIM
Army should be given free hand to shoot at sight these lunatics.
Every company wants to flee haryana due to the stupidity of the jaats
What Bijul mentioned is absolute correct. Abolish this quota system.

Jats approach to violence is very unwise who ever is guiding them. Nothing is achieved through violence. Talking is the only means to reach to some conclusions.
