The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday issued notices to Centre and the state government of Haryana, seeking their response on a plea that raised concerns on pollution during BJP president Amit Shah's rally in Jind that will see participation of almost 1 lakh motorbikes. "We will go to him and ask as why their government is betraying our community", said media reports quoting Malik.

Malik maintained that he and other Jat quota leaders had also met Shah in August previous year and requested him to expedite the withdrawal of cases against the Jats and the implementation of other demands. AIJASS chief Yashpal Malik has named the Jat community's roadshow as "Bhaichara Nyaya Yatra".

He asked the volunteers to ensure to fill the fuel tanks of their tractor-trailers in advance as the government could impose a ban on filling diesel in tractors in view of the protests. Speaking on the matter, Haryana's Director General of Police (DGP) BS Sandhu said the state has sought the help of 150 companies of central forces.

"However, the state government had slowed down the process thereafter", he alleged.

Earlier this week, the government had approved to withdraw 70 FIRs against 822 protesters from 11 districts in cases related to 2016 Jat quota violence.

The government is under pressure fearing a repeat of the 2016 quota stir.

Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar said no one will be allowed to break law and order and peace in the state. The tribunal has sought replies from the Centre and the state government by February 13.

The plea contended that instead of motorcycles, the state government should opt for bicycles or other environment friendly modes of transport for the rally.

"As recent as November 2017, Delhi and the national capital region (NCR) was facing widespread poor ambient air quality to the extent of schools being shut down, public advisories being issued asking people to stay indoors...." It will also be beneficial for the health of those riding bicycles, the petition reads. However, to the utter shock of the applicant, the Haryana government has mindlessly organized this huge motorbike rally which is certainly going to have a long term environmental harm to the NCR area.

The petition prayed to direct the respondents to either reduce the number of motorbikes proposed to mobilize people or use more environment friendly modes and methods, such as bicycles, bring them on foot or in electric vehicles.

"And constitute a committee to assess the adverse impacts that may be caused with regard to air pollution and noise pollution if the proposed rally is taken out", the plea said.
