Jat leaders set two deadlines 25, 28 March

Threatening to block the busy railway track and roads leading to Delhi and even disrupting the water supply to the national capital, agitating Jat community leaders in Haryana on Tuesday said the central and state governments should take concrete steps by Friday to meet their demand for job quotas. Hundreds of Jats continued to block railway tracks in Hisar, Jind and Bhiwani districts of Haryana on Tuesday, saying they will not budge till their demand for inclusion in the other backward classes (OBC) quota was accepted by the central and Haryana governments.
"We will not withdraw our agitation till the central and state governments accept our demand for reservation. We will fight for our rights till the end," Jat leader Hawa Singh Sangwan said. Talks between Jat leaders and Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda in Hisar on Monday failed to yield any result. Hooda had earlier said that Jats should get reservation only in central government jobs. The Jat leaders have set two deadlines, March 25 (Friday) and March 28.
