New Delhi: Recent Jat reservation agitation in Haryana has left NRIs of Haryana origin in Canada in fear about the impact it will cause to the investment in the state.They appealed to people to maintain the age-old brotherhood among 36 biradaris of the state.

Overseas Association of Haryanvis in Canada said in a statement today, “We, the NRIs of Haryana origin, would like to appeal to our brothers and sisters to support centuries-old brotherhood among 36 biradaris in the larger interest of Haryana and the nation. “

The statement said the massacre will impact the image of Haryanvis, Haryana and India. This will have “a significant impact on potential investments in Haryana.”

The Overseas Association of Haryanvis said the agitation has not helped the common man of the state. On the contrary, it said, “will create more unemployment and increase poverty in an otherwise prosperous state.”

The Haryanvi NRI body expressed their concern that the reservation agitation “provided an opportunity for anti-social and anti-national elements to create anarchy in the state.”

It was not the first time Jats protested but it took a violent turn on 20th Feb when they started burning railways tracks, buses and destroyed many shops. Trains were canceled and roads were blocked due to the protest and some cities were announced under curfew.

Haryanvis in Canada pleaded to their khaps to restore “brotherhood that has existed through the centuries” in Haryana.

“We hope that our Haryanvi brothers and sisters will understand our pain and help restore peace and brotherhood in our beloved and progressive Haryana,” the Overseas Association of Haryanvis in Canada said. (IANS)

    It is a strange that students from JNU have been booked on treason, for few slogans, which is also proving untrue, while the Jat agitators who burnt Govt and private properties and killed about thirty person are moving freely in the society. This is indeed very foolish that the perpetrators of such crimes are not being swiftly dealt with. The process of maintaining bhaichara can be successful only if the black sheeps are identified and booked without any delay.

In a good news for the users who want to top up their Tesla using an extra-speedy V3 Supercharger, the EV maker said that 26 of the 46 Supercharger stations under construction along the Trans-Canada Highway will be V3 models.

This is the first large-scale deployment of the faster chargers — there are only a handful of them in the US.

This is an unusual focus for Tesla when it tends to serve the US first, but it makes sense given the realities of the Canadian driving. It’s a more sparsely populated country with longer stretches between cities than you see stateside, Engadget reported on Sunday quoting The Verge.
