CHANDIGARH: In more trouble for the NDA Government, the Jats in Haryana have decided to launch an agitation in the state and a siege in Delhi demanding OBC quota and have expressed their support for the Patel community’s demand for reservation in Gujarat.
All India Jat Aarkshan Sangarsh Samiti Haryana president Hawa Singh Sangwan said, “The Jats in our state will launch an agitation from September 13 and it is likely that a siege will be launched in Delhi on September 28. Our demonstration will be peaceful. If we do not get what we deserve, we will intensify our agitation. We (Jats) don’t indulge in agitation, but if we are not given our due, we never sit silent.”
He also criticised the police action against protesters in various parts of Gujarat and said that everyone had the right to fight for justice in a democracy. The Jat community in Haryana is in touch with people from other communities, including the Rors community, and have formed brigades for the proposed agitation.
The Jat leaders are also planning a large scale agitation by cutting the national capital of essential supplies like water, milk, vegetables and other commodities besides laying siege to Delhi from all sides -- roads and railway tracks. They also plan to disrupt power and gas supply.
The agitation will be launched on September 13 from Mayyar in Hisar as it falls on Shahidi divas, which is observed by Akhil Bhartiya Jat Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti as one Suneel Sheoran was killed in police lathi-charge in Mayyar.
