KURUKSHETRA: Local BJP MP Raj Kumar Saini today slammed the Jat demand for reservation and said that gone are the days when any group could get their demands met by exerting "pressure" and issuing "threats".

Against the backdrop of the Patel quota stir in Gujarat, the MP further stressed that no community could now hold the people to ransom over such issues.

The MP also cautioned against attempts to undermine OBC reservation and said that the communities which were trying to

Saini was addressing BC community members at an event here where the participants also handed a memorandum to him.
