NEW DELHI: The Union Home Ministry has asked all the state governments to
be extra vigilant to avoid any violence and loss of life and property amid
calls on social media for a "Bharat Bandh" (nationwide shutdown) by various
anti-reservation groups to protest clashes during the SC/ST Bharat Bandh on
April 2.

The ministry has particularly asked the state governments to make the
District Magistrates and the district police chiefs "personally
responsible" for the law and order situations in their areas of
jurisdiction, sources said on Monday.

States have been advised to beef up security and make appropriate
arrangements to prevent any untoward incident, including issue of
prohibitory orders, if necessary.
