Jat Mahasabha slam over Bainsla's OBC reservation Remark

Rajasthan Jat Mahasabha issue statement on Bainsla's Remark. Gujjar agitation leader Kirori Singh Bainsla’s recenet remark could leads to Jat- Gujjar Clash in Rajasthan. Yesterday Bainsla told reporter that “The government should make up the 5% quota demanded by Gujjars by drawing 4% from the OBC category,”. Gujjar leader Kirori Singh Bainsla’s statement that his community’s quota demand be met by digging out 4% from the OBC’s 21% quota has irked the Jats, who are a major beneficiary of the reservation under this category. Soon after the Rajasthan high court extended the stay on 5% quota for Gujjars and three other communities for a year on Wednesday, Bainsla demanded that the state government should pull out the share of Gujjars—which he thinks is 4%—from the OBC and club it with the 1% quota given to the community as special backward class (SBC) in May this year.
The news travelled like wildfire from the Raseri rail tracks near Bayana and within hours the Rajasthan Jat Mahasabha issued a statement at Jaipur strongly objecting to Bainsla’s demand. “We will not allow division of the OBC quota at any cost. Gujjars are just 3% and they cannot be allowed to hold the 97% population of the state at ransom,” the Mahasabha’s president Raja Ram Meel reacted. Unmoved by Meel’s reaction, Bainsla launched another attack on the Jats by questioning the manner in which the latter community was included in the OBC category. As unconfirmed news travelled Raseri that the high court has denied the Gujjars even the 1% quota recently granted to them under the SBC category, Bainsla demanded to know, “Why these commissions and committees are mentioned only when Gujjars demand reservation; under which commission or committee report were the Jats given reservation?”

Tribute to Shantanu kumar, former DGP Rajasthan

Shantanu Kumar possessed a rare multi-faceted personality with great expertise in ornithology, a state-level basketball player and a successful IPS officer, who went on to become DGP of Rajasthan. His early life started under the tutelage of his father Laxman Singh, who also served Rajasthan Police, in then biodiversity rich Keoladeo forest in Karauli district. Shantanu Kumar was an IPS officer of Rajasthan who rose to become the DGP of the State Police. Hails from Bharatpur district from village Jaghina. He was born in Bhagaur Jat Gotra. Married into a well-known family of Hissar district in Haryana. Had two sons, Sidharth whos passed away some years ago and Hemant Singh. Both were educated at St. Stephen's College, Delhi. He was a gem of a person and thorough gentleman.
Shantanu Kumar truly represented the Bharatpur state known for brave and unhindered fighter rulers like Surajmal. Though he did not descend directly from the ruling family of this Jat kingdom, by virtue of his education and time-taught experiences, he was the best among all who hailed from Bharatpur. Only K Natwar Singh, a cousin, overshadowed him. He was a true nature lover and shared his knowledge of birds and animals with utmost joy with nature lovers and often compared the rich past with the present poverty.

State OBCs not entitled to quota benefits in Centre: CAT

A person availing reservation in state jobs on grounds of being a "backward" cannot claim the same privilege in the Centre unless declared so by the Union government as well, the Central Administrative Tribunal has ruled. The tribunal passed the order on a petition by four members of the Jat community, recognised as Other Backward Class (OBC) in state of Delhi and seeking quota benefits for appointment as lower division clerks (LDCs) in the Employees State Insurance Corporation Limited , a Central government firm.
They reported for duty after clearing the selection process, but were not allowed to join on the ground that they did not figure as OBC in the Central government list and were not entitled to quota benefits. The petitioners pleaded before the tribunal that the selection was to be made for Delhi region so the OBC candidates belonging to Delhi and coming under the OBC list of the state should be considered for appointment. The tribunal, however, refused to grant any relief to them and dismissed their petitions.

Harvir Singh Nehwal the real Hero of India

Dr. Harvir Singh Nehwal was born in a Jat family in Hisar, Haryana. Indian badminton star Saina Nehwal's father Dr. Harvir Singh is a scientist at the Directorate of Oilseeds Research, Hyderabad and her mother Usha Nehwal is housewife, both of whom were former badminton champions in Haryana. Sharing experience of childhood of saina he says Saina was such a sweet child that all our friends and family fondly called her "Steffi" and she was a very active child always interested in sporty activities. Saina's naughtiest phase was when she was 4 to 5 years old. In Hissar, where we stayed, there were lots of monkeys and Saina was so daring that she would scare the poor monkeys by running after them.
In December 1998, Harvir Singh took saina to meet Coach Nani Prasad at the Lal Bahadur Stadium in Hyderabad. Seeing potential in the girl, Prasad asked Singh to enroll Saina as a summer trainee. Harvir Singh and Saina, who was 8 yrs old at the time, would wake up at 6 every morning and head to the stadium which was 20 km away. After two hours of practice, Singh would drop Saina to school on his way to work. Saina would often fall asleep on these journeys which prompted her mother to accompany them for the next three months. Traveling nearly 50 km a day in order to accommodate the training schedule, Singh eventually decided to move closer to the stadium in 1999. This however didn’t end the traveling ordeal as Saina was asked to attend evening training sessions as well. With the extra training sessions, traveling expenditure rose phenomenally. Added to the cost of equipment including shuttles, rackets, shoes, gutting and expenses rose to over Rs. 12,000 per month. In order to keep up with the rising cost of her training, Saina’s father withdrew money from his savings and provident fund. The tight-rope walk continued until 2002, when sports brand Yonex offered to sponsor Saina’s kit. As her status and rankings improved, the sponsorships increased.
India's ace shuttler and CWG gold medallist Saina Nehwal once said in TV interview that her birth was a big disappointment to her grandmother as she wanted a boy. But Sh. Harvir singh nehwal show that boy and girl child are same and didn't make any difference. He is real hero for Community, india and icon for generation ahead.

Saina Nehwal wins Hong Kong Open title

Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal rallied to register a scintilliating three-game victory over Shixian Wang of China to clinch her third Super Series title of the year at the Hong Kong Open in Wanchai on Sunday. The 20-year-old Indian capped her career's fourth Super Series title triumph with a 15-21 21-16 21-17 win over the 3rd seed Chinese in a gruelling one hour and 11 minutes summit clash at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium. The girl from Hyderabad won back-to-back titles -- Indian Open Grand Prix, Singapore Open Super Series and defended the Indonesian Super Series -- before clinching the gold medal in the Commonwealth Games in October here.
Saina, who dropped to fourth in the world rankings, is likely to inch closer to the number one spot with this resounding victory. Saina played a tactical game after she lost the first game and clawed her way back with some fast-paced rallies and powerful smashes to outwit the Chinese world number 5. In the second game, Saina jumped to 11-5 from 5-5 but Shixian narrowed the gap to 11-10 before the gutsy Indian surged ahead to 19-11 by registering seven straight points. But Saina missed a couple of points on the baseline and nets to allow Shixian close the gap to 19-16. But with the Chinese hitting the shuttle out, Saina was back into the match.

Khap Panchayat wakes up to save girls

A meeting of the khap panchayats in western Utter Pradesh have come up with the most unlikely resolution, demanding strict laws to check female foeticide. The khaps, or clusters of villages bonded on caste basis, have so far been known for suppression of women’s rights. The Sarvajatiya and Sarv khap panchayat in Muzaffarnagar district on November 14 blasted the state for not implementing the Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques (Regulation and Prevention of Misuse) Amendment Act that prohibits sex selection.
Dr Neelam Singh, founder of Vatsalya, a non-government organisation working for checking female foeticide, said foeticide was rampant in the affluent districts of western UP. Dr SP Ram, director general of the health and family welfare department said several measures had been taken to implement the Act. “Surprise checks are being conducted at the ultra-sound test centres.” While the sex ratio (number of females per 1,000 males) in the state is 898, in western UP districts, the ratio is much lower — Saharanpur (865), Muzaffarnagar (871), Meerut (872), Ghaziabad (860) and Gautam Buddha Nagar (841).

Tikait demands to ban students from carrying mobiles in school, colleges

Mahendra Singh Tikait, the leader of Bharatiya Kisan Union, on Friday demanded that school and college students be banned from carrying mobile phones as they have a "bad effect" on them. Tikait, who is also the chief of Baliyan Khap, a social administrative group of one of the gotras of the Jat community, was commenting on a recent decision by a khap panchayat in Lank village in the district banning unmarried girls from carrying mobile phones in order to stop elopement.
Observing that it would be difficult to implement the panchayat's order, Tikait said students in educational institutions must altogether be banned from carrying mobile phones. Tikait also demanded a ban on marriages within the same gotra. Earlier on November 14, all the khap panchayats of Shoram village in the district had come together to oppose same gotra marriages, demanding an amendment in the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955.

Origin of word Jat - Variuos theories behind it

Origin of word Jat: The most acceptable theory about the origin of the word, 'Jat' is that it has originated from the Sanskrit language word “Gyat” . The Mahabharata mentions in chapter 25, shloka 26 that Lord Krishna founded a federation ‘Gana-sangha’ of the Andhak and Vrishni clans. This federation was known as ‘Gyati-sangh’. Over a period of time ‘Gyati’ became ‘Gyat’ and it changed to Jat.
The other prominent theory of the word's origins is that Jat came from the word Gaut tribal name of some Indo-Aryan tribes of Central Asia (such as those which later became Gauts/Goths and settled in Europe), which was written in 'Jattan Da Ithihas'. It has also been mentioned by Bhim Singh Dahiya.
According to the historian 'Ram Lal Hala' the word Jat is drived from word 'Yat'. There was a king named 'Yat' in Chandra Vanshi clan who was ancestor of Lord Krishna. The Jats are descendants of King Yat. 'Yat' later changed to 'Jat'.

Directed by Samir Karnik, the film revolves around the life of a Non-Residential Indian (NRI) who suddenly finds out that his father and brother live in Varanasi. He returns to India to explore his past India's cultural ethos to revive family tie.

I am quite hopeful that we will touch their hearts and make people laugh and laugh and laugh, and somewhere in between, make them cry too," said Dharmendra. The film's title is inspired by the Bollywood number, 'Main Jat Yamla Pagla Deewana,' sung by Mohammad Rafi in the 1975 blockbuster 'Pratigya'. The film is scheduled to hit on 14 January 2010.

"Today's gold is very, very important. I have waited 28 years for this. I started rowing in 1982. We have won bronze medals and a silver in 2006 and today we won the gold," Baig told reporters moments after Lal's epoch-making triumph at the International Rowing Centre.

Jats to hold rally on November 25 at Delhi

Haryana's Jat leaders Tuesday said that they will gather in the capital Nov 25 to give the central government the ultimatum on their demand for other backward class (OBC) status and job quota for the community. Members of the Jat community are seeking reservation in government jobs and educational institutions, as given to OBC sections. 'Both the central and state governments are delaying the issue of our demands and they are not at all serious about them. They are only buying time by making false promises. We have decided to converge in New Delhi on Nov 25 to give final ultimatum to the central government,' said Yash Pal Malik, president of the All India Jat Aarakshan Sangarsh Samiti, while addressing reporters here Tuesday. 'Thereafter, we would intensify our campaign and there is a possibility that we would also show a small trailer to the government on Nov 25,' he added.
Earlier, Jat community members had threatened to seal the Delhi borders Oct 3, before the start of the Commonwealth Games. They later changed their decision. 'We had got a request from the Congress government not to interrupt the Games. They had promised us that immediately after the Games, they would take up our issue, but it did not happen,' said Malik. 'Some members of a political party had also attacked and threatened me. But we are not going to step back and would continue fighting till all our demands are met,' he said. Earlier Sep 13 and 14, Hisar district of Haryana saw a widespread violence by Jat community members on this issue. A mob went on the rampage, targeting government and private property. One youth was killed in police firing, and several people were injured in clashes. Following the violence, Hisar superintendent of police Subhash Yadav was booked and transferred from his post.

Haryana Govt to honour Commonwealth Games winners

The Commonwealth Games has boosted the image of Haryana due to the brilliant performance of its players.The state government will continue its efforts to provide the best possible infrastructure and support to sportsperson, said Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda while speaking to mediapersons here this morning. The government would honour the winners with cash rewards at a special function at Sonepat on November 1, he said. The results at the games were overwhelming. Though the population of the state was just two per cent of the total population of the country, a major share of medals had been won by sportspersons of Haryana.
The Chief Minister said some credit for the success went to the government’s sports policy. His government had recruited 11 sportspersons to the DSP rank in the past six years. Haryana had recently launched a project named “Play for India” under which young talent had been identified and selected for training for competitions at the national as well as the international level. Also, it was commitment and dedication on the part of sportsmen of the state that had resulted in their super performance at the Games. The state government had constructed as many as 117 sports stadia in rural areas in the past few years and would try to set up sports academies in the districts too. While those winning the gold medal would be given a cash reward of Rs 15 lakh, the silver and bronze medallists would get Rs 10 and Rs 5 lakh, respectively. The coaches would also be honoured with cash rewards of Rs 1 lakh to Rs 3 lakh on Haryana Day.

CWG revels real Jat Community, Hide recent controversy

Commonwealth Games 2010 revels the actual Jat Community, leaving behind all recent controversy. The Jat community, which threatened to scuttle the Commonwealth Games and block the Games baton seeking reservation in government jobs, has turned out to be the nation’s flag bearer at the mega sporting event. Jats have won total 27 Medals in CWG 2010, if we includes 4 jat players of indian hockey then we can say that total 31 Medal was won by Jat in CWG 2010. As Krishna Poonia, a Haryanvi Jat and the gold medallist in the women’s discus throw event said on Tuesday at the international broadcasting centre, “Our community is more known for female foeticide and honour killings. But so many Jat women have won medals at the Commonwealth Games; it only proves what we are capable of if given the opportunity.”
There are 50 athletes from Jat community in the Games, of which a remarkable 31 have won medals. The gold haul includes two shooting gold medals won by Harpreet Singh, a Jat Sikh. Seven Jat girls from Haryana and three Jat Sikh girls from Punjab have also added to the medals list. Two Haryana lads Paramjit Samota and Manoj – both Jats – have entered the boxing finals in their respective weight categories and are assured of at least a silver, thus taking the tally further up. After the victory of Indian hockey team against England on Tuesday, more Haryana athletes are assured of at least a silver medal.
The Indian hockey team features four Haryana Jat boys – Sandeep Singh, Sardara Singh, Mandeep and Bharat. After the sensation victory against England last night, their fans back in their home state are hoping for a gold against the mighty Australians. Other prominent Jats include Sushil Kumar, the current world champion and the gold winner in the 66kg freestyle wrestling category and Mandeep and Manjeet Kaur who won the 4X400 metres relay last evening. Sociologists and researchers said Jats – Haryana’s dominant community – had always promoted traditional sports in rural areas including boxing, wrestling and kabaddi.

CWG Diary - "All winners from India and also from Jat families"

Krishna Poonia’s gold was the first for India at the Commonwealth Games since Milkha Singh won the 440 yards race in 1958. After Australian world champion Dani Samuels cried off due to health and security fears, the Indian trio of Poonia, Harwant Kaur and Seema Antil were tipped to win at least two of the three medals. The three women are fierce rivals on the national circuit. Antil and Poonia aren’t the best of friends, especially after the former returned a positive test just after the 2006 Games. Poonia had then taken potshots at Antil, but today, no bad blood showed.
As the packed house brought the roof down, Poonia shouted over the din to tell a reporter that that she was happy that all winners were from India. “And all from Jat families,” she added. And when Poonia couldn’t come up with a great answer when asked if she would have won the gold had Samuels been around, it was Antil who jumped to her defence. “Even if Dani Samuels had participated today, Krishna would have won,” she said.

Haryana having double Crorepatis than Bangalore

India is considered to be one of poorest country in world and specially the rural india. Spread across 650,000 villages, with an average population of 1,100, rural villagers were long imagined by city dwellers as primitive, impoverished and irrelevant, something to drive past on the way to something else. But Northern state Haryana is one of exception in this list. Haryana has the largest number of rural crorepatis in India. The Jat people are one of the most prosperous groups in India on a per-capita basis and Majority of population in haryana belongs to Jat community.
Northern state of Haryana, rural dwellers are now nearly twice as likely to be crorepatis as city dwellers in Bangalore, the high-technology hub, according to the National Council for Applied Economic Research, the leading collector of data on rural India.

Jat Community in OBC and General Category

Jat people are considered a forward class in all the states of India but Jat community in Punjab, Haryana and Delhi comes in GEN Category as per Govt when some Jat region are classified as OBC in some states, e.g.Jats of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Mirdha Jat people in Madhya Pradesh. Land reforms, particularly the abolition of Jagirdari and Zamindari systems, Panchayati Raj and Green Revolution, to which Jat people have been major contributors, have immensely contributed to the economic betterment of the Jat people. A number of Jat people belonging to the political classes have produced many political leaders, including the 6th Prime Minister of India, Prime Minister Chaudhary Charan Singh.
Adult franchise has created enormous social and political awakening among Jat people. Consolidation of economic gains and participation in the electoral process are two visible outcomes of the post-independence situation. Through this participation they have been able to significantly influence the politics of North India.

Saina Nehwal wins Gold in CWG 2010

Women shuttlers led by singles title-favourite Saina Nehwal provided India with a golden double to pilot the country to a historic second-place finish in the Commonwealth Games that ended here today. Saina rallied brilliantly from a first-game loss to put it across Mew Choo Wong of Malaysia 19-21, 23-21, 21-13 in the Women's Singles Final after Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa had captured the Doubles crown. In the first game, Saina found it difficult to judge the shuttle and lost a few points at the forecourt and nets to see the game slip out of her hands. But the Indian came back strongly in the second. Saina started playing more cross shots and kept pushing the shuttle at the back in the long rallies to come back from a 0-2 deficit to lead 14-10.
Wong then narrowed the gap and wrested the lead at 21-10 before the Indian closed the game with two more points to roar back into the contest. In the decider, Saina employed a similar strategy and keeping her rival away from the nets, used her deceptive drops and tosses to lead 11-7. She consolidated on her lead as Wong's game crumbled. The Malaysian kept hitting the shuttle out of the court and hit the nets in the final point as Saina burst into tears and ran into her mentor Pullela Gopichand's arms.

Harwant came up with an effort of 60.61m, a tad below her season's best of 60.66m, while national record holder Seema Antil threw the discus to a distance of 58.46m.

Sushil gave a power-packed performance as he outclassed South African Heinrich Barnes, 7-0. As the bout ended, the overflowing stands broke into an impromptu jig to the tune of 'yeh desh hai veer jawano ka'. Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit and Commonwealth Games organising committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi were among the spectators cheering the Indian wrestlers. Apart from Sushil's gold, there was some disappointment on the final day of wrestling as Indians lost two other finals -- Anuj Kumar (84kg) and Joginder Kumar (120kg) -- and had to be content with silver. Anil Kumar got bronze in the 55kg event.

Chances are very few heard what Alka Tomar said over the happy, racous din that she had helped kick off in the stands. It was an impromptu party, and everyone was invited. Music blared down from the Indira Gandhi Stadium stands - a noisy medley of bhangra and Bollywood. Fans were dancing, the mood was one of happy, deliriouspromise. It was one Anita showing up in the 67 kg title bout was determined not to ruin. She didn't, but first, Alka Tomar.
“I chose to stay back in the village even though my entire family is in Delhi to see Alka perform at the Commonwealth Games as I did not have the courage to see her had she lost in the bout today. Agar haar jati to dekh na paata.” Alka’s father Nain Singh Tomar thus explained the reason for not being there with her daughter in her moment of glory.

Some youngster like Amit said that "Our ancestors thought that if people marry in same gotra then genetic properties remain in the same family, so it was avoided that time. but now in 21st century same gotra marriage must be allowed while one said " same gotras should be avoided while we do not have issue in marriage between inter-caste and inter-religions". So just like khap, people have different opinion but 82% people says no to same gotra marriage, 10% says same gotra marriage should be allowed while surprisingly on 3% people says "Let Govt Decide". So have thier view but do not want that will be imposed as a rule.

Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said on Tuesday evening that the Akhil Bhartiya Jat Sangharsh Samiti (All India Jat Agitation Committee) had suspended its agitation in the state. The outfit had resorted to a violent agitation to press for reservation for Jats in state government.

Officials also promised to give one of the deceased protestor’s family members a job in the state government. “We have also registered a case against the SP, as demanded by the victim’s family,’’ Hooda said.

Haryana Govt accuse INLD for Jat violence in state

Haryana government Thursday accused the state's main opposition Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) of instigating violence during the agitation by the Jat community for reservation in government jobs and educational institutions. At least nine ministers of the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government issued a statement in which they not only blamed the INLD for instigating violence but also named leaders of the INLD and its youth wing for leading people who indulged in violence in the state Monday and Tuesday. 'Incidents of violence, arson, destruction of public and private property and disruption of citizen services over last three days have caused deep anguish and consternation among all right thinking people of Haryana. The state's economy has suffered insurmountable loss of business and property besides causing great inconvenience to the 'aam aadmi',' the statement said. 'INLD president Om Prakash Chautala and his party are systematically trying to divide the social fabric of Haryana on caste and communal lines,' it said.
The ministers named several INLD leaders and their supporters who led agitators in Hisar, Sirsa, Kurukshetra and Bhiwani districts to indulge in violence. The statement said: 'We appeal to the people of Haryana to see through this petty divisive game of the INLD. We also appeal to all concerned that the Commonwealth Games are being held shortly and are a matter of great honour and pride for the entire country, more so for Haryana on account of our proximity as also part of the venues being situated in Haryana.' 'Any continued destruction, arson and violence will put a question mark over the dreams of sportspersons and aspirations of millions of Indians and Haryanvis who expect stupendous performances in Commonwealth Games depicting universal brotherhood.'

Congress Jat leader says gehlot is anti-Jat leader

The state Congress initiated disciplinary action against its vice-president and former Cabinet minister Hari Singh for making serious allegations against party president and Union minister C P Joshi and chief minister Ashok Gehlot. On behalf of Joshi, the PCC general secretary Mumtaz Masih issued the show-cause notice to Singh, seeking an explanation on the latter's "anti-party activities" within seven days. "Singh made unfounded statements before media against the chief minister and the PCC president on August 16 and 17. The party takes it as grave indiscipline," Masih told TOI, adding that making baseless allegations against two senior party leaders just before the municipal elections (held on August 18) suggested ulterior motives of the PCC vice-president.
Singh, on the other hand, welcomed the party action against him, saying he had nothing to fear as whatever he said was true. "I am yet to receive the notice, but won't take seven days reply to it. Within three days I can explain how I was right in accusing Gehlot." Earlier this week, Singh had termed the chief minister a casteist, an anti- Jat leader and someone who had promoted large-scale corruption in the government. The Jat leader, in fact, demanded the party high command should set up an independent inquiry committee against him to examine if the charges made by him were false. "The party high command should act on the basis of such an inquiry and punish me only if I am found wrong," the four-time Congress MLA and former Lok Sabha MP said.

Happy Independance day - 2010

Jat leaders protest against central Govt on Khap issue

Members of the Khap launched a mass agitation at delhi on Monday against the central government's decision to enact a law to ban their council's community-related norms and allied dictums. They reiterated their united stand to combat the governments' plan to prohibit the council's directives and curb incidents of honour killings in the Jat community. "We want to tell that every community residing in this region is against it (proposed legislation questioning locus-standi of Khap Panchayat), this was the main motive behind this meeting. Secondly, the government's take on the Khap that it will be banned and prosecuted, it is a mistake on the part of the government," said Yudhvir Singh, General Secretary, All India Jat Mahasabha.
However, on this aspect, the Khap Panchayat members asserted that the council has never been party to such acts of violence, in contrast to the honour killings attributed to the community elders' notions on Gotra (social clan and family lineage). "We have told many times before that the Khap Panchayat does not issue diktats. Khap Panchayat always works for the good of the society and never takes a wrong decision," said Ram Singh Solanki, a Khap Panchayat functionary. Earlier, the Supreme Court had sought a response from the central government and eight states including Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand on the honour killing issue.

Major Surendra Poonia win 3 Medals at World medical games

Major Surendra Poonia's wins three medals at the World Medical Games in Porec (Croatia) more than a fortnight back. The 31-year-old Presidential Bodyguard says the will to do something for the nation pushed him to perform beyond expectations despite being the country's lone flag-bearer at the July 3-10 Games. A multi-faceted personality, Poonia studied medicine at the Armed Forces Medical College in Pune before opting for the special forces. Hailing from a family of farmers in Sikar, Rajasthan, Poonia now has, apart from the degree, a gold in power lifting, silver in discus and bronze in javelin.
The champion, who started out as a long-distance runner and still competes in some of the country's prestigious marathons, says he could not participate in the long distance events at Porec because he tore a calf muscle during training for his maiden international competition. “Basically, I am a long-distance runner but weeks before the event I tore my muscle,“ says Poonia, who has been part of 10th and 2nd Para, based in Kashmir and Siachen, and done duty for the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Congo for a year. After a six-month stint at Agra's 50 I-Para Brigade, he became a medical officer at the Rashtrapati Bhawan. While there, his dreams took wings. “The sports facilities at the Rashtrapati Bhawan gave me the opportunity to rekindle my desire to represent the country. It was a tough field in Porec where 47 countries and 2,743 athletes took part, some of them members of their national teams.“ His next target, “Win more medals at the World Games.“

Jat demands OBC reservation, threaten to block Delhi

The Akhil Bharatiya Jat Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti has warned that if the government does not pay heed to its demand for extending reservations to jats under the “other backward classes” category, they would disrupt the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi in October. It warned that the Commonwealth Games baton relay, which is now in Allahabad, might also be disrupted. The members of the community had on June 13 taken control of the Sonia Vihar water regulator head in Ghaziabad and cut off water supply to Delhi. Speaking at a press conference, the samiti’s national president, Mr Yeshpal Malik, said the ministry of social justice had promised the jat community that it would look into their demand by July 10.
Mr Malik said, “There is no indication from the government that it plans to do anything. Hence, we will chalk out our strategy and go ahead with our earlier declaration of disrupting the Commonwealth Games 2010 if the government does not respond.” He said members of the jat community, whether they be Hindus, Muslims or Sikhs, should be given reservation under the OBC category in Union government jobs and also in states where there is no such reservation — like Haryana, Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir. Mr Malik also said the strategy of disrupting the Commonwealth Games would be chalked out on July 28 when members of the community will stage a “warning demonstration” at Jantar Mantar. Given that Delhi was “surrounded” by jats, Mr Malik warned, his members would be in a position to cut off power, petroleum, gas, milk and vegetable supplies to the national capital if the need arose.

Govt may bring special law for Honour killings

Dropping its earlier move to bring amendments in the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for including honour killings under its ambit, the Centre has decided to look into the scope of enacting a separate special law that will treat it as a social evil along the lines of the Commission of Sati (Prevention) Act. PM Manmohan Singh referred the matter to a Group of Ministers (GoM) on Thursday and agreed that views of states be sought, after the Cabinet, following a spirited discussion, backed Home Minister P Chidambaram’s contention that there was a need to give special focus to the issue of honour killings.
Sources said at the Cabinet meet, HRD Minister Kapil Sibal questioned the logic of moving amendments to the IPC along with the Indian Evidence Act and the Special Marriages Act to deal with honour killings. Sibal’s argument, supported by other colleagues like Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal, was that any “honour” killing just amounted to murder and hence, the need should be on ensuring action over the murder charges rather than classify them as a separate category of murder. They were of the view that existing laws were adequate to deal with the problem.

Saina Nehwal - with jat attitute "Nothing is Impossible"

Saina Nehwal rising tennis star of India believe in "Nothing is Impossible". Until a few months ago, India's leading badminton writer Shivani Naik often complained about how Saina Nehwal was unresponsive to any journalistic probing – accessible, polite, but like a stone wall you couldn't break through easily. The only time Saina would let go - almost frothing at the mouth, the Jat blood in her expressing itself in coarse, but not abusive, Hindi – was when she spoke about players from China. This, mind you, wasn't a product of racial discrimination or patriotic fervour, but simply because the Chinese were considered impossible to defeat, and no Jat worth her mustard fields likes to believe anyone is unbeatable.
Ranked in the fringes of the top-10 back then, Saina was forever making strategies to counter the Chinese, working on her flick, her net-play, her smash, her court coverage, desperately seeking a way to outmaneuver the assembly line rather than play into its hands by getting involved in a direct slugfest. In the last few months, she has fanned her China obsession by gradually making inroads into women's badminton's impenetrable fortress, getting herself to a place where – after three titles in a row, including two Super Series victories, and with a world ranking of No 3 – a sustained assault on the final frontier is the next logical step.

BSP Government and party support Jat Community’s demand for OBC at national level

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ms. Mayawati has stated that her party and Government fully support the demand for inclusion of Jat Community in OBC category at the national level, as socio-economic and educational condition of this caste was not good. She appealed to the Jat Community to spearhead their agitation in a peaceful manner, so that the general public were not put to any difficulty. She asked the Jat Community to turn to Delhi for their demands in a peaceful and disciplined manner as the U.P. Government had no role in this connection.
The Chief Minister said that though Jat Community was included in the OBC category in Uttar Pradesh, it had not as yet been included in OBC category at national level. She said her party and the Government believed that the Jat Community should be included in OBC category at the national level also. She said that the method adopted by the Jat Community for the agitation to press for their demand for inclusion in OBC category at national level was not proper, as the people of Sarva Samaj, including Jat Community were put to difficulties. She said that people used to install kiosks for drinking water during summer and stopping water supply in this gruelling heat was not good from a humanitarian angle. The Chief Minister has again appealed to the people of Jat Community not to take to unconstitutional method. She expressed the hope that agitators would not take law into their hands and would not do any act, which could harm the people and create a law and order problem.

Saina Nehwal win Indonesia Open Title 2010

Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal continued her rampaging form as she completed a spectacular hat-trick of titles by clinching the Indonesia Open Super Series with a straight-game triumph over Japan's Sayaka Sato in Jakarta on Sunday. Unbeaten for the past three weeks, the top seeded defending champion defeated her unseeded but resolute rival 21-19 13-21 21-11 in a rollercoaster encounter that lasted 45 minutes. This was Saina's third successive title, having won the Indian Open Grand Prix at home and the Singapore Open Super Series Tournament last week. This is also the 20-year-old's third Super Series title overall. In a see-saw battle, the 19-year-old Sato matched the defending champion shot for shot for most part of the opening game but was undone by her own mistakes at crucial junctures.
The first game that lasted 14 minutes had both the players tied 11-11 at one stage and though Saina remained ahead for most part after that, a gritty Sato did have her share of chances. Leading 20-18, Saina could have finished it off on her own serve but she handed Sato a chance by hitting the shuttle wide. But Sato could not capitalize and smacked a forehand into the net to give Saina the opening game. The second game saw Sato making a comeback with the change of ends also leading to a change in fortunes. The Japanese proved to be the more dominant of the two players in these 15 minutes as she raced to a 4-9 lead. Sato sent down some powerful shots from the baseline and Saina could only watch as they fell out of her range. The frustration of being out-witted by a rival ranked 26th in the world showed when Saina clinched her fist at one of Sato's unforced errors. Shaken by the setback, Saina roared back in the decisive third game. The Indian took a comprehensive 11-5 lead but continuing her never-say-die attitude, Sato reduced the margin to 9-13.
The Indian, however, was in no mood to slip up and emerged triumphant after reeling off four successive points. A jubilant Saina let out a huge scream after winning the title, which also made her richer by USD 18,750.

Mayawati Supports Jat OBC Reservation demand

UP Chief Minister Mayawati on Monday extended support to the demand of Jat community for their inclusion in the list of OBC at the national level.The All India Jat Reservation Struggle Committee, which organized a rally in Moradnagar in Meerut on Sunday, had stopped water supply to Delhi's Sonia Vihar from Ganga canal.The Chief Minister said that she favoured inclusion of the community in OBC because their socio-economic condition was not good. However she appealed to the community to peacefully hold their demonstration.Mayawati said the community leaders should go to Delhi to present their case, as UP had no role in it. Mayawati said they should not adopt any unconstitutional way to press for the acceptance of their demands.Report from Meerut said that Rashtriya Lok Dal and other Jat stalwarts have distanced themselves from closure of water supply to Delhi from Muradnagar Plant of Ghaziabad on Sunday.Hundreds of supporters of the committee along with their president Yashpal Malik barged into the water supply plant at Muradnagar on Sunday and stopped water supply to Delhi. Samiti is demanding reservation to Jats in centre.Delhi's Sonia Vihar and Bhagirathi water plants get water from Upper Ganga Canal through Muradnagar plant of district Ghaziabad.It is believed that agitating protestors had covert support of the state government, which has been demanding to settle the issue of pending water bill with Delhi before July 3. The state government has warned Delhi to stop water if the latter fails to afoot the pending water bills. It is believed that, in spite of prior announcement of Samiti to stop the waterto Delhi, local officials purposely did not initiate required action against the protestors only to let the pressure mount on the Delhi government.

Jat protesters called off agitation, Life normal in NCR

Jat protesters called off their agitation, hours after a team of Jat leaders, accompanied by several Ghaziabad officials, held talks with representatives of the Centre's social welfare department in Delhi. The protesters moved away from the Upper Ganga canal, allowing the supply of raw water to be restored to Delhi. the Jats, protesting against Centre's perceived indifferent attitude towards their demand to bring the community under OBC category, asked the government to announce a new policy for them by July 10. The Jat leaders said if their demands were not met, "the situation would not pleasant when Delhi hosts the Commonwealth Games".
"Water, electricity, petrol, diesel, CNG etc reach Delhi through our fields. If our demands are not met we will be forced to disrupt their supply. In our talks we made this clear to the government officials," said Colonel M S Dahiya, one of the Jat representatives who attended the meeting in Delhi. Sources in Ghaziabad district administration said the negotiations between protesters and top officials went for several hours on Monday morning before they were successful in persuading the agitators to restore the water supply. "Centre and UP government were trying to pass the buck. While Centre said the state must deal with the problem, UP government said Jats have issues with the Central government. Finally, Centre agreed to hold talks with us," said one of the key Jat negotiators. Though water supply from the canal started on Monday afternoon, senior DJB officials said the raw water would not reach Sonia Vihar and Bhagirathi water treatment plants before 6-7 hours.

CPI Slam congress over hooda's remark on Khap

CPI today questioned Congress' silence over Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda's opposition to same-gotra marriages saying it appears that the ruling party is supporting "outdated, pro-caste panchayat outfits". The argument that same-gotra marriages were not approved by the society was "not valid" in the 21st century, the party said in a statement here. "Hooda is trying to indulge in cheap vote bank politics. There cannot be two different types of laws in the country. Why Hooda does not condemn the so-called honour killings? Hooda is playing soft on those who are trying to take law into their hands," the CPI said.
The CPI's remarks came in the backdrop of Hooda supporting Khap Panchayats of Jat community which has come out against marriage within same-gotra. "It is surprising to understand why the Congress is silent on the views of Hooda who is the chief minister of their party? The silence amounts to support the outdated,pro-caste panchayat outfits in the country," it said. The CPI demanded that Hooda withdraw his comments.

Haryana CM Hooda says marriage within same gotra not appropriate

Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda Thursday indirectly extended his support to khap panchayats (kangaroo courts) which are demanding a complete ban on the marriages within the same gotra or ancestral lineage. While expressing his views on same-gotra marriages, Hooda said: 'In my view, marriages in the same gotra are not appropriate.' 'Khap panchayats work like social organisations in the state. We all expect them to work as per the law of the land,' said Hooda, on the sidelines of an event here. Haryana khap panchayats, which are dominated by the Jat community, are pushing for a complete ban on marriages in the same sub-caste. They are also demanding an amendment to the Hindu Marriage Act for the purpose.
Hooda's statement assumes significance in the wake of the approaching panchayat elections, slated for June 6 and 12. No political party in the state can afford to offend the Jat community as it forms a major chunk of the vote bank. Last month, the main opposition party Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) also supported the khap panchayats' call to amend the Hindu Marriage Act.

Sarv Khap Mahapanchayat demands ban on same gotra marriage

Pressing ahead with their demand for amendment in the Hindu Marriage Act, the Sarv Khap Mahapanchayat on Sunday resolved to slap a token fine of "ek aana" (currency unit formerly used in India) on MPs and MLAs if they failed to meet its demand by June 19. In a meeting held in Jind, which was attended by around 2,000 representatives of khap panchayats, they also ruled out establishing any matrimonial ties with the law-makers' kin if their demand is not fulfilled within the stipulated time period. Besides, the congregation of khaps or caste councils, notorious for their diktats prohibiting marriages within same sub-castes, also threatened to launch a stir and stop all kind of supplies to the National Capital Region of Delhi on June 20.
Not stopping at that, the leaders announced to stop repayment of bank loans, water and electricity bills if their demands are not accepted. Prominent among those who attended the meeting was BKU president Mahendra Singh Tikait. "We have been forced to take these decisions against MLAs and MPs because their silence (on same-gotra marriage ban) clearly endorses the government's stand of not making any changes in the Hindu Marriage Act. Besides, since they believe that they are comfortable in the present system, let them marry off their children within their families. It is a social boycott," said Satbir Singh Chahal, the president of All India Jat Swabhiman Sabha. Justifying their stand, Dada Baljit, the president of Maliks khap, claimed, "We are here to protect our age-old tradition and culture. The defaulting MLAs and MPs shall have to deposit the fine with their village priests and obtain a receipt before going out to attend a social or political function.... One thing is for sure, we wont allow any social wrong under the garb of changing trends."

INLD wants assembly meet to ban same-gotra marriages

The Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) sought a special session of the Haryana assembly to move a resolution to amend the Hindu Marriage Act and to ban marriages in the same 'gotra' (lineage). The main opposition party in the state has come out openly in favour of the khap panchayats' (community councils) demand for such an amendment. INLD legislators -- state president Ashok Arora, Ram Pal Majra, and Krishan Panwar -- sent a notice to Speaker Harmohinder Singh Chatha for a non-official resolution to be moved in the assembly seeking an amendment to the Hindu Marriage Act. They demanded that till the act is not amended, the central government should promulgate an ordinance to impose a ban on same 'gotra' marriages.
The communication from the INLD leaders said same 'gotra' marriages should be prohibited in the country to maintain social balance and harmony and to honour customs. The INLD support for the khaps seems to be targetted at garnering votes in the rural areas in the June 6 and 12 panchayat elections in the state. In the wake of the village council polls in Haryana, no political party can afford to annoy the dominant Jat community which forms a huge vote bank in the state. Khap panchayats have been in the news for the wrong reasons in the last five years after they started annulling the marriages of young couples, saying they were 'brothers and sisters' - being from the same 'gotra'. Khap decisions declaring several such marriages void have led to murders of young couples by their families or other community members - clear cases of honour killings. many couples and their families have also been socially boycotted and forced to leave their homes and lands.

Jat Vote bank, Khap and Haryana Politics

Jats, accounting for over one-fourth of the electorate in Haryana, political leaders are openly supporting Khaps or caste councils, recently in news for their diktats over same 'gotra' marriages. Congress MP from Kurukshetra, Navin Jindal not only attended a Khap Mahapanchayat in Kaithal on Sunday, about 120 km from here, but also lauded these panchayats saying they had been rendering yeoman service to the society by resolving people's problems over ages. His constituency has a strong presence of the Khaps and it was Karoran village in Kaithal district from where Babli (19) and Manoj (23) fell in love and were murdered in cold blood. Their relationship was not approved as it violated the same 'gotra' norm, under which even married couple is declared as a brother and sister. "They (Khaps) are constituents of my constituency and I have to listen to them," Jindal has maintained, even though he has made it clear that any action, which violate law, cannot be justified.
While praise for the Khaps by Jindal (40), who is also a leading industrialist and US-educated, may have surprised a few, but 75-year-old former Chief Minister and opposition INLD supremo, Om Prakash Chautala's recent statements that his party will bring a resolution to amend the Hindu Marriage Act, goes on to show that parties in Haryana cannot afford to annoy the Jats. The present Act does not address the problem of same gotra marriages, a key demand raised by various Khaps. "We will bring a resolution in the assembly regarding this. If the government brings an amendment bill, my party will support it," Chautala has said. Another senior Congress leader and six-time MLA from Rewari, Ajay Yadav, too has been supportive of the Khaps, admitting that there is a "scientific reason" why marriages within the same gotras should not take place. Chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, also a Jat, has tried to play down fatwas issued from time to time by the Khaps, maintaining that law will take its own course and nobody will be allowed to take law in his own hands. However, his close confidant and Rajya Sabha member Shadi Lal Batra has also gone a step ahead, favouring amendment in the Hindu Marriage Act.
Various Khaps including Dharana, Singhwal and Asanda, have in the past been issuing fatwas to couples and their families over same gotra marriages. Political analysts point out that with Municipal polls and Panchayat elections drawing closer in the state, parties cannot afford to alienate the Jats. The Jats are believed to have helped in INLD's resurgence in October 2009 elections. The party bounced back into reckoning after being out in the dumps having tasted successive electoral defeats from 2004.

Baba Ramdev supprt Khap panchayats' demand

Backing the Khap panchayats' demand for a ban on marriages in same sub-caste, yoga guru Ramdev on Monday asked the caste councils, who are seeking amendments to the Hindu Marriage Act, to take up the issue in a non-violent manner and within the purview of Constitution. Ramdev claimed that it had been scientifically proved that marrying in blood relations or in the same 'gotra' increases the health risk for offspring. "I have nothing to say except what is accepted by society and has a scientific base-- that marriages should not take place among people who have blood relations or are of the same gotra," he said in reply to a query at a press conference.
Opposition to such marriages should be expressed in a non-violent manner, Ramdev said. "If Khap Panchayats press their demands in a non-violent way and constitutionally, then our legal experts should also think over their demands including on making necessary amendments to the Hindu Marriage Act," he said. The self-styled caste councils have drawn flak for their diktats against couples marrying in the same sub-caste.

Use Khap Panchayat for social reform

Khap Panchayat word is now days in every news channels, even some of TV Channel's Anchor who never moved out of A.C. CABIN in Mumbai/Delhi in whole life , are now giving verdict over one of oldest social organization khap panchayat and defaming jat community just to increase TRP of TV Show and today khap panchayat word look like a word from another planet. Recent incidents defame the image of khap panchayat and jat community people so its time when we must bring the truth whether wrong or right and use this 1000 years old platform for social reform. After all Khap panchayat's motive is to work for Community, it is not some SENA for social damage and burning nation.
We must use khap panchayat or other social organization to bring major changes in society by bringing down social evils like child marriage, Mayara, Mrityu-Bhoj and other issues in jat community and make some major changes in Khap panchayat's traditional rules as per demand of time. We must use this platform for girl education, help financially if some one needed and bring awareness in public that today there is no difference between girl and boy.

Khap Panchayats Don't Have Legal Sanctity: Hooda

Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said on Tuesday that khaps would not be allowed to take the law into their hands. The Haryana CM also said that the government would support the khaps if they take up social work. "Khap panchayat is not a legal body. We will support them if they work for the social welfare of the people. But nobody can take law into their own hands," Hooda said after a meeting with deputy chairman of the Planning Commission, Montek Singh Ahluwalia at which the annual Plan outlay for 2010-11 at Rs 18,260 crore for the state. During the plan panel meeting, member Syeda Hamid, who looks after the state in the Commission, mentioned that Haryana had to change its image as male-dominated society. "Khap panchayats don't have any legal sanctity. They are like an informal social organisation like NGOs.... As far as Haryana government is concerned, if somebody does anything good for social cause, we welcome that but nobody will be allowed to take law into their hands," the CM said.
On Congress MP Navin Jindal's support to khaps, Hooda said that khap panchayats "have their own views. Individuals have their own views and we have our own." The CM's statement came at a time when khap panchayats are in the news for allegedly ordering honour killings and getting political backing in pushing their demand for amendment in the Hindu Marriage Act to ban same gotra (sub-caste) marriages.

Naveen Jindal, Chautala support khap panchayat

Congress MP from Kurukshetra Naveen Jindal on Monday supported the khap panchayats’ demand to amend the Hindu Marriage Act to ban unions within a gotra (sub-caste). Jats comprise 17 per cent of Kurukshetra’s population. But the Congress distanced itself from Jindal’s statement, saying in a democracy individuals are entitled to different opinions.Jindal received support from INLD chief OP Chautala who met Home Minister P Chidambaram to urge him to amend the act. “We are opposed to inter-caste marriages, which are not right scientifically and medically,” Chautala later said. But the Congress distanced itself from Jindal’s statement, saying in a democracy individuals are entitled to different opinions. “The Congress stand is crystal clear. No customary law or practice can possibly be excused or condoned in any manner if it involves killing of any kind in the name of honour, tradition or heritage,” he said.
Jindal, however, did receive some support from within. Congress MP Shadi Lal Batra said he would demand an amendment to the act in Parliament. Khaps in Haryana have not only been demanding a ban on same-gotra marriages but also on alliances within a village to “protect the social fabric”. Jindal was forced to cancel his foreign tour and attend a khap mahapanchayat at Kaithal in Haryana after the Sarv Jaat Sarv Khap Mahapanchayat threatened to lay siege to his residence there. Khap leaders — who have asked Haryana MPs to clarify their stand by May 25 — presented him with their demands. Jindal assured them he would apprise the party leadership and Centre about their issues. Though Jindal condemned khaps for supporting honour killings, he said the issues raised by them are complex and demand a larger debate. “Being a public representative, I am duty bound to listen to their issues and try to address them.”

The 'Sarv Jatiya Sarvkhap' mahapanchayat presided over by Mewa Singh, president of the Mor Khap, urged all the MPs and MLAs of the state to support the demand of the panchayats.
