Pressing for their demand for reservation in central government jobs, the jats across northern India will hold a mahapanchayat in Delhi on April 20.

Addressing a press conference, the Jat leaders said would now restart their agitation after the Mahapanchayat and this time they would take it to its logical conclusion.

"After the mahapanchayat we will submit a memorandum of our demands to the prime Minister. If the central government fails to take notice of our demands this time, we will restart our agitation and it will intensify with every passing day," said Narain Singh, chairman, Jat reservation Committee. He said their protest will now hit the streets and they would also block traffic along the highways and arterial roads.

The Jats of northern India have been demanding their inclusion in the list of backward classes for jobs in the government.

"The government has been keeping us in dark for quite sometime now. They have not paid any heed to our genuine demand. We will not let it happen for long," Singh said.
