NASHIK: Former Union minister Ajay Singh today said some people are misleading the ongoing agitation by Jat community members for quota even as he underlined the need for reservation.

"Jats are peaceful and non-violent, but some people are misleading the ongoing movement. Injustice is being done to the community. Politicians assure us of reservation, but the demand gets rejected in court. Reservation should be provided for the community by making a provision in law," he said.

Singh, also president of 'All India Jat Mahasabha', was in the city to address the 14th National Jat Intellectual conference.

Singh, who had served as the minister of State for Railways in 1989-90, said, "Jats have presence in various sectors including Army, politics, sports etc. and have made tremendous progress. However, following internal differences and hostilities, our progress is stalled".

The event was jointly organised by Jat Community Service Trust and Delhi-based Jat Biographical Centre.   

"The picture would have been different had stalwarts like (former Prime Minister) Charan Singh and Devilal (former deputy-Prime Minister) came together," he said.

Vijendra Singh, who trained local girl Kavita Raut, an acclaimed long-distance runner, demanded financial assistance  or the athlete who holds the national record for 10-km road running.

Various office-bearers of 'Jat Seva Samiti' also attended the function.
