Demanding correction and implementation of recently announced 10% quota benefits for Jats' community by the Haryana government, the Akhil Bharatiya Jat Arkshan Sangharsh Samiti - an all-India Jats' organisation - on Tuesday threatened to disrupt Parliament's forthcoming monsoon session if their demands were not met.
Addressing mediapersons, samiti national president Yashpal Malik and Haryana unit president Dharampal Dhariwal said that they would protest against the central and state governments' apathy towards their demands for inclusion of Jats in 37% quota for other backward classes (OBCs) and subsequently implementation of all benefits in services and education as were meant for the OBCs.
The state government had formed two separate classes of special backward classes and economically weaker classes outside the OBCs, which was nowhere to be seen in the country, Malik specified.
He said the samiti also sought withdrawal of criminal cases registered against a large number of samiti members who were falsely booked during their month-long stir in March this year.
Malik held that though they had apprised the state and central governments of the said demands since March, nothing had been done so far.
“If our demands are not met till the monsoon session of Parliament, we will disrupt the proceedings by stopping MPs from entering the Parliament and gheraoing nearly 40 MPs who had supported our demands in writing but had not done anything,' Malik added.
