Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today made a fervent appeal to people sitting on dharnas in the state, saying issues could be resolved by sitting across the table. Referring to jats who are sitting on dharnas and agitating for granting reservation to them, he said officers of the state government had already held two rounds of meetings under the chairmanship of Chief Secretary D S Dhesi and the matter could only be solved through dialogue. The Chief Minister, who was interacting with media persons here, said though there was a call for protest on March 20, he hoped the issue would be resolved in a peaceful manner. Replying to a question, the Chief Minister said that with a view to maintain peace, the Central government has been liaisoning with all concerned quarters and the state government has made all necessary arrangements. "No problem would arise," he said.
