Jats put off stir by six months

The decision to postpone the agitation, demanding reservation in Central government jobs, was taken at a “Mahapanchayat” (grand meeting) of the members of the Jat community held at Kafurpur in UP’s Amorha district.

The Jat leaders said that they had decided to give the Centre six months to consider and accept their demand, failing which they would once again launch their agitation.

Although the Jats had left the railway tracks in UP, they continued to hold dharna on the tracks in Haryana and Punjab due to which hundreds of long distance trains had to be either cancelled or diverted.

According to sources, the Jats were literally forced to defer their protest in the light of tough posture adopted by the Supreme Court. The apex court had directed the UP and Haryana government to make sure that the agitation did not cause any inconvenience to the public.The court had also taken to task UP and Haryana chief ministers for being soft on the agitating Jats, who had blocked rail traffic for several days in UP and Haryana.
