india Updated: Sep 18, 2006 00:16 IST

Jat leaders on Sunday demanded the dismissal of Union HRD Minister Arjun Singh and action against the writer of the NCERT history textbook which allegedly contains derogatory references to their community, and vowed widespread protests on November 1 if the demands were not met.

At a 'Sarvakhap Panchayat' (community meeting) in Jhajjar by the Vishavir Jat Mahasabha, the leaders said they would block all roads and rail links to Delhi from the states surrounding the national capital if Singh was not removed from Cabinet and a case of sedition was not registered against writer Bipin Chandra.

They warned that the agitators would also cut off water and electricity supply to the national capital region.
