The BJP on Saturday issued a show-cause notice to the party’s Kurukeshtra MP Raj Kumar Saini, who has not yet apologised for his anti-Jat rants despite chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s assurance in this regard in the all-party meeting.

BJP Haryana in charge Anil Jain said Saini was asked in the past too to not make such statements, yet he defied the party’s central leadership.

Saini, however, could not be contacted for his comments..

Hailing from Naraingarh assembly constituency of Ambala district, Saini has been in the news ever since he openly spoke against the inclusion of Jats in the OBC list for quota in jobs and eeducational institution tutions.

On numerous occasions, Saini has said he will form a Sena (brigade) to counter the Jats’ efforts to get included in the OBC list since Jats are already affluent.
