Calling Jat reservation as the most important issue, Khaps on Friday announced that they would hold their national meeting at Mathura on June 11 to discuss the matter and launch their "final battle" thereafter.

The decision was taken after a meeting of more than 12 khaps at Jat Dharamshala here, where the issue of reservation was discussed threadbare.

Talking to mediapersons later, Akhil Bharati Kali Raman Khap president Sajan Singh described Jat reservation as the most important issue before the khaps.

"Jat reservation is related with the community's future. Our future is bleak without reservation," Singh said.

He said that a national meeting would be organised in Mathura on June 11 where all the Jat leaders would discuss the reservation issue and decide the future course of action."

He said that Jats, Rajputs, Gujjars and members of many other communities associated with farming are heading towards a dark future.

"With dwindling land for cultivation due to various reasons, it is imperative that there should be some reservation in jobs for such communities or else they won't be able to meet their ends," Kali Raman Khap head said.

He said only reservation could help the people with farming background uplift their living standard.
