: Responding to demands for his resignation over the violence that led to 38 deaths following the conviction of Dera Sacha Sauda head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Wednesday said his government had carried out its work well.

After meeting BJP national president Amit Shah in New Delhi to submit a report on the situation in the state, Khattar added his government complied with the Punjab and Haryana High Courts order.

“Jo maangta hai, vo maangta rahe. Humne apna kaam acchi tarah kiya tha (Whosoever is asking for my resignation, let them ask. We did out work well), Khattar was quoted as saying.

Thirty-eight people died on Friday after violence broke out following the CBI court convicting Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim of raping two women.
