New Delhi:  All Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs in Haryana will be contributing a month’s salary to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for providing financial assistance to those affected during the recent Jat quota stir.

The decision in this regard was made in a meeting chaired by Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar with all the Haryana BJP MLAs here.

State Transport Minister Krishan Lal Panwar, who had earlier decided to contribute his one month’s salary to the fund, had appealed to his cabinet colleagues, MLAs and officials of the state government to come forward and help the affected people.

Urban Local Bodies Minister Kavita Jain has already decided to contribute her one month’s salary to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for the same cause.
