Jats in Haryana to get SBC status

Gurgaon, Feb 19 (IANS) The Haryana government on Friday agreed to provide Special Backward Class (SBC) status for Jats in the state, Agriculture Minister O.P. Dhankar said.

A bill regarding this will be brought in the assembly in the upcoming budget session, Dhankar told the media here. He added that the government had accepted all the demands raised by Jats in Haryana.

Dhankar spoke after attending an all-party meeting held in Chandigarh.

“We have accepted all the demands of Jats demanding reservation to include the community in the backward class category.”

The community will get SBC status and 10-20 percent reservation based on economic stauts as immediate relief.

BJP MP Rajkumar Saini, who has been issuing statements regarding the demands made by Jats, has been directed not to say anything that hurts the sentiments of the community, he said.

Cabinet Minister Rambilas Sharma also withdrew his charge that former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda was instigating the Jats.
