Unable to anticipate the huge number of people attending the grievances redressal committee meeting in Hisar presided by deputy chief minister Dushyant Chautala, the district administration couldn’t make adequate arrangements to accommodate large crowd at the PWD rest house on Monday.

The presence of a large number of people outside the venue led to a traffic jam, which the police failed to clear for two hours. The deputy CM had gone to Sirsa on Sunday night. On Monday morning, he met his party Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) workers in Sirsa and Fatehabad and attended an event in Adampur.

Dushyant reached the PWD rest house Hisar at 2 pm to hear the grievances. However, a large of number of people had arrived at the venue, catching the police and civil administration off guard. No arrangement has been made either to manage the crowd or for parking vehicles.

With not enough seats to accommodate everyone, the district commissioner Uttam Singh and superintendent of police Shiv Charan Attri were forced stand alongside the deputy CM as he gave a hearing to the people who came with their complaints. JJP MLAs Anoop Dhanak (Uklana constituency) and Jogiram Sihag (Barwala) were also present on the occasion.

Later, at a press conference in Hisar on Monday, Dushyant said the delay in expansion of the state cabinet was due to the impending decision by the Supreme Court in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case. “Now, the cabinet will be expanded soon,” he said.
