This procession, flagged off from Gurugram’s Civil Lines by BJP district president Gargi Kakkar, encountered resistance when it was halted by a group of men near Khedla Mod in Nuh.

In response to the escalating tensions, authorities swiftly imposed prohibitory orders to restrict the assembly of people in both Nuh and Gurugram districts.

Mobile internet services have also been temporarily suspended in Nuh and Faridabad until August 2, aiming to maintain peace and control the situation.

Calling the incident “unfortunate", the Haryana CM appealed to all the people to maintain peace in the state". He added that the guilty would not be spared at any cost, and strictest action would be taken against them.
