Jat quota stir put off till April 3
The quota agitation by Jats in Haryana was put off till April 3, Friday, with the community leaders agreeing to give the state government time to get a reservation bill passed during the ongoing Assembly session that ends on March 31.
An announcement in this regard was made by All India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti President Yashpal Malik after the Jat leaders held talks with Haryana Chief Secretary and DGP here.
“We have given time to Haryana government to bring and pass the Jat reservation Bill by March 31 (when the ongoing Budget session ends),” Malik said.
“If the government does not pass the reservation Bill by March 31, then we shall chalk out our next course of action in our meeting on April 3 to be held in Delhi,” he added.
The Haryana government had already assured the Jat leaders that it will bring the bill to provide for reservation to Jats and four other communities in the State during the current session of the Assembly.
