The UT administration has imposed section 144 of the CrPC in Sectors 1 to 6 on Monday, anticipating protest by the members of the Haryana Sarv Karamchari Sangh to register their protest against long- pending demands.

The sangh has been demanding removal of pay anomalies and pay scale pattern at par with Punjab to the employees serving in Haryana.

The members of the Haryana Sarv Karamchari Sangh will assemble at Yavnika Park, Sector 5, Panchkula, around 11am. They will hold a rally and march from Yavnika Park to the Haryana Vidhan Sabha through Housing Board light point.

The orders were passed by UT deputy commissioner Mohammed Shayin keeping in view that protest or any agitation could cause obstruction, annoyance or injury to persons lawfully employed, disturb public peace and tranquillity and cause riots and affrays.

The above order shall not apply to the police or paramilitary or military personnel or any other government servant on official duty, processions or meetings for which prior permission in writing of the district magistrate/sub-divisional magistrate, Chandigarh, is obtained and the customary and ritualistic procession in connection with weddings and funerals.
