National convener of the Akhil Bhartiya Jat Sangharsh Samiti Yashpal Malik has said that the final decision on the agitation for reservation for the community will be taken on September 13, when Jat leaders from across the country will meet in Mayyar village of Hisar district.

Malik, who was in Bhiwani on Tuesday to mobilise members of the Jat community for participation in the agitation, said that Jat leaders would gather at Mayyar on the death anniversary of Sunil Sheoran, who had died while fighting for the cause of the community. He said the final decision about the next date for resuming the agitation for reservation would be taken in the Mayyar meeting.

"This time, it will be the biggest movement for reservation, and the Haryana government will face difficulties due to our agitation after the panchayat elections,", he added.

Malik also accused the Narendra Modi-led NDA government at the Centre of not pursuing the case for reservation of the Jat community strongly in the courts.

Regarding BJP MP Rajkumar Saini's criticism of the Jat community for its agitation for reservation, he said, "Like Kuldeep Bishnoi, now Rajkumar Saini wants to become a non-Jat leader in the state, but he will never succeed in his motives".
