The decision was taken in a meeting convened under Yashpal Malik, national president of ABJASS, at Jat Bhawan in Rohtak on Saturday afternoon attended by various Jat leaders from across Haryana, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.

In the first round, beginning from November 28 to December 9, memorandums would be submitted to all MPs from Jat-dominated areas at their Delhi residences by the people of their constituency to raise the issue in the Parliament. “However, we have decided not to hand over memorandums to Haryana BJP MPs Raj Kumar Saini and Ashwani Chopra since they had insulted the community. But if other MPs fail to raise Jat issues, they would be opposed in the forthcoming elections in their constituencies,” said Malik.

In the second round, on December 12, Delhi-based Jat leaders would submit a memorandum to the BJP national executive at its headquarters in Delhi to throw out such politicians from the party who have insulted and abused Jats.

In the third round, a Bhaichara Yatra would start on December 3 from the Deenbandhu Sir Chhotu Ram’s birth place in Garhi Sampla of Rohtak under the leadership of ABJASS state general secretary Mahender Poonia. This yatra would later culminate at Mayyar in Hisar district after which the fourth round, that of indefinite dharna, would begin.

The last round may start anytime between December 25 and January 15, 2017, and the final date would be decided on December 12.
