cities Updated: Nov 29, 2016 10:08 IST

BJP MP from Kurukshetra Raj Kumar Saini appealed the non-jats and backwards of the state to get united for a new political alternative before next assembly election of the state, on Monday.

Aise ghut ghut kar jeena bhi koi jeena hai, aap log ek khuli jail me jee rahe ho,” said Saini, while addressing a gathering at Samajik Samanta rally organised on the death anniversary of Jyotirao Phule at Kurukshetra.

“People in Haryana have become habitual to living under the terror of a particular community that has only 10% share in the state population, but dominate government jobs, especially the police,” he said adding, “there is a need for non-jats to unite for a new alternative.”

The first time MP added that all government jobs should be reserved for all communities as per their share in the population. “100% reservation will help in bringing social equality as youth of all communities will get equal chance in government jobs,” he added.

Saini, also demanded that the Rajya Sabha should also be abolished saying that members of the opposition parties get united in the upper house to stop important bills passed by the government in the Lak Sabha.

He also demanded that MGNREGA should be linked with the agriculture to provide labour to the farmers at cheaper rates and MGNREGA workers will get work for 300 days. A population bill should also be passed to make it two children law mandatory.

Saini, however, praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for taking step of Demonetisation and said that the move will help to end corruption and black money. But he slammed the BJP lead state government and alleged that the government was working under the pressure of leaders of a particular community.

“Police withdrew section 307 of IPC from the youths, who attacked on me and their leaders honoured them at a function, what message they want to give to our youths”, he added.

Union minister for reservation in judiciary, private sector

Addressing the gathering, union minister of state for human resource development Upendra Kushwaha, who was chief guest of the rally, demanded that the reservation should be given in appointments in judiciary and private sector.

“Despite having a big share in the population, youth from backward classes are lagging behind in appointments in the judiciary and private sector. There is a need for reservation in these sectors,” he added.

National president of Rashtriya Lok Samata Party, Kushwaha, extended his support to Saini, saying that his party will support Saini’s fight for social equality.

However, BJP leaders from the state stayed away from the rally. Not even a single leader from BJP was present at the rally.
