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?”

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.
