The newly formed Exploited and Ignored Non-Jat Organisation staged a protest at Chhotu Ram Chowk here on Tuesday.

Convenor of the organisation Ved Pal Tanwar (leader of Rajputs), who had been providing shelter to the dalits of Mirchpur village at his farm house for the past three years, said: “Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda is favouring the people of his own caste and it is evident from the records that majority of the appointments in the state has gone to Jats.”

He said now, Police Recruitment Board was being constituted to favour jats again. They would not allow the Haryana police to become a police of Jats only. Since many officials had refused to oblige the chief minister, fearing conviction later like Sanjiv Kumar IAS officer in JBT scam, in the name of caste, this board was being constituted. They opposed the move tooth and nail, he said.

Virendar Bagoriya, who is spearheading Dalits stir in Bhagana village said: “The Haryana government led by chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda is favouring Jats and non-Jats are being ignored in the state.”

Crime was increasing in the state as Jat cops were shielding the criminals of their community. In the new recruitment, the chief minister was again manoeuvring to appoint maximum Jats in the state police.

Tanwar said: “Soon we will meet the President and Congress president Sonia Gandhi and tell them about the plight of non-Jats in the state. We want the chief minister to release the data of Jats and non-Jats appointed during his regime so far.”

The protesters also raised slogans demanding scrapping of Haryana Police Recruitment Board.
