Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Sunday said the Army was working with the civil administration in maintaining the law and order situation in Haryana, which is on the boil following Jats agitation.

"The Army is working with the civil administration. I have asked the Army to continue active support to the civil administration in maintaining law and order situation in the state," Parrikar said.

The Minister also chaired a meeting in which Army chief and other senior defence officials were present.

During the meeting, he was apprised about the deployment of army personnel in the state and the difficulties being faced by them.

The Minister also directed the army to bring in their engineering equipment to ensure smooth movement as the agitators have dug several roads.
