Jat quota stir called off

Jat agitation planned in Delhi tomorrow has been called off after a meeting between Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal and Jat leaders. Addressing media at Haryana Bhawan this evening, the Chief Minister said there are other constitutional ways to press for demands.

Speaking on the occasion, Jat leader Yashpal Malik said Jats will not come to Delhi tomorrow to protest. He said they have agreed to the 5 points laid down by Chief Minister. He also said they trust the government and are sure that their demands will be met.

The All India Jat Aarakshan Sangarsh Samiti is demanding reservations in education and government jobs. It had given a call for a march to gherao Parliament and to hold dharnas on the Delhi border blocking all highways to press for its demands.
