Akhil Bhartiya Jat Aarakshan Samiti, which is spearheading the Jat quota movement in Haryana, on Sunday threatened to lay siege to Delhi in July if their demand of reservation for their community in government jobs under the OBC category is not met.

The outfit claimed that they were promised the reservation under OBC category by the Centre last year, however, nothing has happened on that front.

The decision was taken at a meeting of executive committee of the Samiti, presided by Jat leader Charan Singh, at Chhotu Ram Dharamshala here on Sunday.

The meeting also decided to 'gherao' residences of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and other leaders if the demand is not met.

The Samiti representatives at the meeting claimed that no action had so far been taken regarding their demand despite "assurance" made by the Centre a long time ago.

"The Union government seems not to be taking any interest to meet our demand...," said Hawa Singh Sangwan, state president of the Samiti.
