JAT PROTESTERS on Sunday announced to resume their agitation if their demand for reservation was not met by March 31 — the last day of the Budget Session of Vidhan Sabha. The decision was taken jointly in panchayats held in the districts of Jind, Jhajjar and Rohtak. The Haryana government had earlier assured that it would table a Bill on Jat reservation in this Budget Session. The bill continues to be elusive.
The other demands of the Jats include jobs and compensation to people of all communities who died during the reservation protests last month. They have also demanded that cases registered against the members of the community be withdrawn and those arrested during the protests be released.

“If the Jat quota bill is not tabled by March 31, we will hold a meeting of the community from 13 states on April 3 in Delhi. The announcement of the future course of action would be made there. We are hoping the Bill would be introduced soon,” said the president of All India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti, Yashpal Malik. “If Jats are not
accorded reservation, the next agitation would be bigger then the previous one. The Jat community is not in the mood to wait more.”
Jat leader Hawa Singh Sangwan said they would start the agitation again in a peaceful manner if the government does not give them reservation by the end of the Vidhan Sabha session.

“The government had given its word on reservation. What kind of a government would this be if it goes back on its word? It is our right to protest if reservation is not implemented. We would launch a peaceful agitation.” In February, 30 people had lost their lives during the nine-day violent agitation by Jats demanding 10 per cent quota in government jobs and educational institutions.
Several districts including Rohtak, Jhajjar, Kaithal, Jind, Sonepat and Bhiwani had witnessed violence.
