The conviction of self-appointed guru for many, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh of raping two women, leading to violence by his followers resulted in killing 38 people and damaging property worth millions of rupees. If that was not enough the murder of a student in the school premises of one of the private schools has made matters worse. Khattar has been called upon by media persons to throw light on deteriorating law and order situation in Haryana. In fact so many are the issues that Khattar is actually not finding time to even hand over his resignation latter to party seniors.
Manohar Lal Khattar had called a press conference today morning to make people aware of the steps his government is taking to bring the violence down. To the repeated questions on why he is not resigning, this is what Khattar had to say,” Who said am not resigning. I have already typed my resignation letter and it is at my office desk. But if you would have noticed and am sure you have, there is an untoward incident happening daily in Haryana. Tell me, how can I find time to send my resignation letter to the party seniors. I tried it on Friday, then this school incident popped up. Give me some time.”
Opposition parties have offered help to Khattar in sending the resignation letter to BJP headquarters. Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala in fact asked some of his men to personally visit the CM’s office and collect the resignation letter. Manohar Khattar has meanwhile refused to take any help and has promised that as soon as situation becomes normal in Haryana, the first thing he will do is resign.
