Congress delegation led by Udai Bhan and Deepender Hooda denied entry to Nuh district due to imposed Section 144 after July violence. Government accountability discussed as identity verification of migrants is recommended.
Blocked Visit by Congress Delegation
A 10-member delegation from Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC), led by Udai Bhan and Rajya Sabha MP Deepender Hooda, was prevented from entering the violence-stricken Nuh district on Tuesday. The police set up barricades at Palwal T-point in Rojka Meo village, halting the delegation’s progress.
Section 144 Impacts Visit
Citing Section 144 of the CrPC being imposed in the district, Nuh Superintendent of Police Narendra Bijarniya explained that the delegation was denied entry due to ongoing efforts to restore normalcy after the July 31 violence.
Police Deployment and Replanning Visit
Narendra Bijarniya emphasized that the heavy police presence aimed to prevent additional strain on the district administration, urging the delegation to reschedule their visit once the situation is fully stabilized.
Strong Reactions and Intended Visit Purpose
Deepender Hooda expressed strong disappointment, stating that the delegation aimed to visit the Nalhar temple and meet those affected by the violence, emphasizing an appeal for peace and communal harmony.
Government Accountability and Police Presence
Hooda held the government accountable for the ongoing issues, citing that better police deployment during the July 31 yatra could have potentially prevented community clashes.
Prominent Congress Leaders in Delegation
Key members of the Congress delegation included state unit’s working president Jitendra Bhardwaj, former minister Captain Ajay Singh Yadav, Mahendragarh MLA Rao Dan Singh, and Rohtak MLA B B Batra.
Identity Verification for Migrants
Intelligence agencies recommended verifying identities of nearly 2,000 migrants residing in Nuh. This action stems from suspicions of outsiders’ involvement in the Nuh violence.
Importance of Identity Verification
Verifying identities becomes crucial to address issues in accordance with the law. The authorities aim to prevent exploitation and unlawful activities by identifying and potentially relocating individuals involved.
The situation in Nuh remains complex, with political visits being monitored closely amidst efforts to restore peace and security.
