Jayant Choudhary

Jayant Choudhary is serving his first term in the 15th Lok Sabha. He contested the 2009 General Election from Mathura, Uttar Pradesh and won by a margin of 1.69 Lakh votes. Born on 27th December 1978, Jayant did his undergraduate studies from Shri Venkateswara College, Delhi University, and in 2002 completed an MSc in Accounting and Finance from the London School of Economics and Political Science. Jayant has been a vocal critic of the 1894 land acquisition law and the large-scale acquisition of fertile lands in the State of Uttar Pradesh. He was at the forefront of a number of agitations to protest the unfair acquisition of land in the State and in particular, the agitations in the Noida, Greater Noida, Mathura, Hathras, Agra and Aligarh districts. The agitations and the violence against protestors at Bhatta Parsaul, Bajna and Tappal recently led to a nationwide debate on the misuse of the provisions of the Acquisition Act, and the indiscriminate use of force on protestors. On 26th August 2010, thousands of farmers came to protest at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi where Jayant Chaudhary forcefully called for the Central Government to intervene and move to pass a new Land Acquisition law in parliament.
On 5th August, 2011, Jayant introduced a Private Member’s Bill on Land Acquisition in the Lok Sabha. The main tenets of the Bill included measures for limiting the government’s acquisition for private profit and the use of urgency clause in acquiring land. The proposal calls for return of land to landowners in case the land is not utilized in the stated land use within a period of five years, including intended land use as a parameter in calculating market value as compensation for landowners, a time-bound procedure for the acquisition process, compensation and dispute resolution, and a Land Acquisition Compensation Disputes Settlement Authority to adjudicate in disputes. Jayant is concerned with the impact of climate change on our country, its agriculture and environment. He has spoken out in parliament on the need for countries like India, which have developing and large agrarian economies to come together and adopt a flexible approach that does not create barriers for growth but at the same time addresses the need for a global understanding and commitment on the climate change issue. Jayant is a vocal proponent of renewable energy. He attended a conference by the climate parliament organization in the European Parliament in Brussels in May 2011, and has called for the Government to set a target for India to achieve a 15 % share of solar, wind, biomass and other renewable energy technologies in total electricity supply by 2020.
Jayant has also recently submitted to the Lok Sabha Secretariat, a Private Member’s bill to amend the Right To Information Act to increase the applicability of the act to ensure greater transparency. Jayant Chaudhary is a member of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance and the Consultative Committee on Ethics. He also serves in the Parliamentary Committee on Ethics, and as a member of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR). He previously served in the Standing Committee on Agriculture. Jayant Chaudhary is the Co-chair of the FICCI Indo-British Forum of Parliamentarians and member of the Indo-Venezuela Parliamentary Friendship Group. He is also a Co-Convener of the All Party Indian Parliamentary Forum for Tibet.

Ajit singh meet Home minister for inclusion of Jats in OBC

RLD chief Ajit Singh and Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Friday met home minister P Chidambaram seeking inclusion of Jats in the Central list of backward classes. Pointing out that the Jats are classified as a backward caste in many states like UP, Uttarakhand and Rajasthan, the RLD chief asked: "why can't they be classified a backward class at the Centre"? It is a demand that has been there for a long time and it is a just demand. How come that Jats are backward in Noida but not in Delhi (Centre)?" he asked while talking to reporters after the meeting.
Stating that they had conveyed to Chidambaram the demand to expedite the process for Jat reservation, Digvijay Singh said: "The demand for reservation for Jats is an old one and in states where Jats are declared backward in the state lists, they are not so in the Central list." Giving examples of other states where Jats are listed as backward in the state list but not in the Central government list, he said: "Both the RLD and the Congress party have supported the demand to include Jats in the central list. The problem is that the Backward Class Commission had rejected this demand". The Congress leader said: "The home minister has listened to our demand and said that as soon as the Commission submits a report a decision will be taken."

waiting for the cheering smiles

Today news comes up to my ears that our honourable ministers Chaudhary Ajit singh and Digvijay singh had a great time with home minister mr p. chidambaram discussing over the topic reservation for jats among backward classes.In some states we had already this one but at the central level only rajasthan relishing with joy of this.still at the central level jats are considered among general classes.This tym our home minister seems ready for this expedition.last tym the plea was rejected from the board of ministry this time its gonna be in our favour.we have lot of points in our favour starting from the one that jats are included in backward classes in all the jat dominated states already at state level. this will bring the winning smiles on faces of many which were lagging before due to unnecessary reservation of others.surely we will have our reservation filled up with governmental stamp....hope to see the victorios smiles on faces of our jat people as soon as possible..:):)

Sehwag hits 219, the new World record by Jat Boy

Indian batsman Virender Sehwag today created history by becoming the highest scorer ever in a one-day innings and the second cricketer after team-mate Sachin Tendulkar to score a double century in the fourth ODI against the West Indies. Sehwag smashed his way into the record books with his stupendous 219, surpassing Tendulkar's 200 not out against South Africa in Gwalior on February 24 last year. This remarkable achievement gives Sehwag the unique distinction of being India's top scorer in both Tests and ODIs. He had scored 319 against South Africa in Chennai in 2008. The dashing opener reached the double century milestone when he square-cut Andre Russell for a boundary in the 44th over of the Indian innings, setting off wild celebrations in the stands and dressing room at the jam-packed Holkar Stadium.
The entire cricketing world was treated to an encore of an unbelievable feat as Delhi Blaster Virender Sehwag bullishly slammed an ODI double century, a rarity only achieved once before by Sachin Tendulkar. Sehwag was pitted as the man to be the first one to reach Tendulkar’s record by the Master himself and he stood true to the reputation. Becoming the highest run-scorer in ODI history (219), Sehwag not only crossed Sachin but also helped India post a formidable 419-run target against the visitors. The 418/5 was also India’s highest total in ODI matches. When asked about the expectations from the fans, he was quick to counter stating, “Everyone expected this from me and I live on expectations. When Sammy dropped the catch, I thought god has helped me to get to 200”.

Rajasthan minister Ramlal Jat resigns

The Congress government in Rajasthan seems to be passing through turbulence as, after the sacking of Mahipal Maderna from the cabinet over the case of a missing nurse, another minister in Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot's team quit Saturday over allegations related to a woman's death. Ramlal Jat, state minister for forest and environment, mines, said: "I have tendered my resignation to Chief Minister Gehlot, and have requested the CM to accept it." Jat recently was involved in a controversy over alleged hastening the post-mortem of a woman who died under mysterious circumstances in Bhilwara district. 
Paras Devi, 34, was the wife of Bhilwara Dairy's president Ratan Lal Choudhary, a close aide of Jat. The Congress legislator from Mandal constituency of Bhilwara district quit following a news report levelling charges against him. Refuting the charges levelled in the newspaper, Jat said that these were "completely baseless" and aimed at damaging his reputation. "I am ready for any kind of investigation by any investigating agency," he said. The post-mortem of the woman was conducted allegedly in the presence of Jat around 2 a.m. Sep 28 in Bhilwara after she died under mysterious circumstances. The post-mortem report stated the cause of death as peripheral circulatory failure, hinting at the possibility of poisoning, a police official said on condition of anonymity. The state government in the last week of September ordered an inquiry into the incident. On the other hand, Maderna was sacked from the cabinet by Gehlot Oct 16 over allegations that he had a role in disappearance of nurse Bhanwari Devi from Jodhpur's Bilara area Sep 1. It was alleged that the nurse had started blackmailing Maderna, the legislator from Osian, on the basis of a CD showing both of them in a compromising position. The case is being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Maderna's questioning by the CBI is likely to continue Monday.

Happy Diwali

Mayawati now wants quota for Jats, writes to PM

Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati has demanded the Centre to include the Jat community in the central Other Backward Classes (OBC) list and written a letter to the prime minister in this regard. In the backdrop of the state Assembly poll scheduled early next year, Mayawati has recently been on ‘letter to PM’ spree to woo the different segments of electorate. Recently, she had written separate letters demanding reservation to minorities, especially Muslims, proportionate to their population. The other letter demanded reservation to the poor among upper castes.
In her latest letter to PM Manmohan Singh, Mayawati observed that majority of the Jat community members earned their living from agriculture and allied activities. Owing to decline in agricultural land holding, the financial condition of Jat families had weakened, while they were educationally backward. Their children lagged in the field of school education and the community had inadequate representation in central services as well, she said. She mentioned the UP government had included Jats in the list of OBCs on March 10, 2000. Mayawati further said the central OBC list had included the Jats living in Rajasthan (excluding Dholpur and Bharatpur districts) through notification dated October 27, 1999. Since, Rajasthan was an adjoining state and the socio-economic condition of Jats in both the states was similar, there was a strong case for including UP's Jats also in the central OBC list. mayawati underlined that opportunities in the field of education, employment and other sectors would have to be provided to the community to bring about a positive change in their socio-economic condition.

Support Anna Hazare

Anna Hazare (Born June 15, 1938) from Ralegan Siddhi, a small village in Ahmednagar District, Maharashtra, is following the JAT way. JAT is not the term used for a caste, rather it is used to portray the attitude, passion, power, courage, hardwork and determination carried by JAT.It is time for all of us citizens to contribute in whatever little way we can in this fight against corruption being led by the elderly 74 year old ex-soldier Anna Hazare. As a token or gesture of our support to this anti-corruption movement. Even a small gesture counts a lot and will go a long way. Kindly spread the message through sms and emails to all your acquantances. Helping the Anna Hazare in fighting for a cause to regularize the Lokpal bill would help eliminate the corruption to some extent.
The Lokpal bill gives the power to file complaint of corruption against PM, CM, MP, MLA, Ministers, CJI or anyone with the Lokpal. The Lokpal bill was first presented during the fourth Lok Sabha in 1968 and passed there in 1969, however while it was pending in Rajya Sabha, the Lok Sabha was dissolved which lead to the failure of the bill. Some say that politicians/britishers have divided the country in various castes for the vote bank and their benefits, however the country should be categorized as Good and Bad, Well to do and needy categories. All the higher and good class ones should take-up one from the other category and help them live their life conveniently. Each and every community is fighting for some cause these days and poor govt. get on its knees in front of any people who could give them any kind of profit.  This is the fight against corruption,  and major issue every Indian is worried about, so we are with Anna Hazare and his movement. Anyone comes in opposition is in some way or other corrupted, so lets see who all are opposing and whom we should elect in next elections. We are sure it would be achieved sooner than later.

As usual things were going softly one day i get involve in a little quarrel between two guys but i don't know that time i was just supporting the justice n truth i became angry with oppositions though they r my frnds n all fighting ends up after five days (i guess) when my friends whum i have behave rudly came to me with a large group n asked me too come in personnel then the one who was leader among them n (my best frnd earlier) came to me n said with smiling face dude sorry for that day n we all r here together for compromising for that n u need not worry about the same after all we know we r jats n can't bearinjustice then we hug each other with a smiling face n now we r best frnds again this makes me feel really proud abt my caste first tym n im still enjoying this feeling but after about two three months second incident happen when i guess gurjar andalon was goin on in rajasthan it was the hot topic those days when all were busy in finding reserved categories of quota system this was the tym when i came to know thats rajasthani jats r under obc category only except bharatpur n dhaulpur district as they r from royal blood or princely states now i have understood clearly everything abt this system then i enquire abt meena in my knowledge thay have completed ten years of their st reservation n still continuing with the same no matter they r acquired all the above stages of rajasthani gov but outside rajasthan they r still facing the shame.they blame their leaders .n now when we heard abt jat agitation for reservation in central for obc quotas i was not able to face those people of general category earlier with whum i was comfortable they said to me congratulation jatt sahab then something touches me from inside that tym i feel is it my fault that i m jat n i dont want u all to face such situation again but i m still proud for being my jat because still we r general n need not to face the tremble look of this world so i think we r made up with special talents n no need for reservation is there otherwise its not far when we will be guilty of being jat like meenas n other categories .

Casteism drowning jats into separacy

Today in this world the lack of awareness among jat people specially villagers pushing themselves within flock of sheeps is eventually the thing which i hv noted personally.we people r separating ourselves from the world just by interfering in every second problem just by bringing down jatophobia i want to know one thing r we standin far away from a community where everyone care for each other or just trying to separate ourselves from the great indian culture. as per my view jats clans r collected with d people which involuntarily help others n were awarded this title "JAT"for voluntry particiption as warriors in mughal period.i respect all of them for putting us with such a proudy title which can be in danger if we cut ourselves from society if this thing prevails much it would be no longer that tomorrow a demand may be arising for jatland just like khalistan but we get our identity from this country which i think the only thing that departs with our souls after death . Today india is known for its cultural diversity if each of our countries tribe starts thinking in their own interest it would be no longer when we would be departed from this earth by leaving behind just the spirituality of separation where our ancestors souls along with us will be witness of our clans declining future and their ruin as other foreign tribes which r extinct from the world map.i m not in opposition of casteism but i wanna say just one thing that this is our coutry n we together can only make efforts regarding this interactin with different cultural dynasties will bring modernisation in ourselves.today we jats our losing our status because of these unwanted strikes for reservation or by blindly promoting casteism unnecessarily i dont think we require any reservation for showing our talent this only bring hatredness to our caste from others .i don't want the cheap thing should overcome the mind of people about our tribe just like today meenas(tribe from rajasthan) r blamed for. I know that we r much powerful than others in strength as well as power but this doesn't demand our separation from our country so i think we should respect others n shouldn't provide a message to masses(specially villagers) which led them for their seperacy from whole world. N finally i want to say one thing that "I M PRoud Of Being a INDIAN JAT"reminding u its INdian Jat nor a Simple Jat firstly we r indians than JAT

Maharaja Suraj Mal

Maharaja Suraj Mal (1707�1763) was ruler of Bharatpur in Rajasthan in India. He is known as "Plato" of Jat caste in India. He was born in the month of February 1707. He was one of the eighteen living sons of Thakur Badan Singh. Maharaja Suraj Mal created Raja Brajendra Bahadur, married 14 wives, including, (a) Maharani Kishori, (b) Rani Lakshmi, (c) Rani Hansia, (d) Rani Ganga, (e) Rani Kavaria, (f) Rani Khet Kumari.
In the early 17th century, the peasant folk of Bharatpur were being terrorized and ill treated by the Mughals. At this point of time Churaman, a powerful Jat village headman rose against this tyranny but was defeated harshly by the Mughals. This did not remain for long, since the Jats once again came together under the leadership of Badan Singh, and controlled a vast expanse of territory. The Mughal emperor recognized him and the title of �Raja� (king) was conferred upon him in 1724. Deeg was the first capital of the Bharatpur state with Badan Singh being proclaimed its ruler in 1722. He was responsible for conceiving and constructing the royal palace on the southern side of the garden, now called Purana Mahal or old palace. Because of its strategic location and proximity to Mathura and Agra, Deeg was vulnerable to repeated attacks by invaders. In 1730, crown prince Suraj Mal is reported to have erected the strong fortress with towering walls and a deepwater moat with high ramparts about 20 feet wide in the southern portion of the town. In the same year he built the fortress at Kumher. Raja Badan Singh�s heir, Raja Suraj Mal, was the most famous of the Bharatpur rulers, ruling at a time of constant upheaval around him.

Raja Surajmal used all his power and wealth to a good cause, and built numerous forts and palaces across his kingdom, one of them being the Lohagarh Fort (Iron fort), which was one of the strongest ever built in Indian history. The inaccessible Lohagarh fort could withstand repeated attacks of British forces led by Lord Lake in 1805 when they laid siege for over six weeks. Having lost over 3000 soldiers, the British forces had to retreat and strike a compromise with the Bharatpur ruler. Of the two gates in the fort, one in the north is known as Ashtdhaatu (eight metalled) gate while the one facing the south is called Chowburja (four-pillared) gate. Maharaja Suraj Mal conquered the site of Bharatpur from Khemkaran Sogaria, the son of Rustam, in the year 1733 and established the Bharatpur town in the year 1743.
He fortified the city by building a massive wall around the city. He started living in Bharatpur in year 1753. Maharaja Suraj Mal attacked Delhi on May 9, 1753. He defeated Nawab of Delhi Ghazi-ud-din (second) on May 10, 1753 and captured Delhi. The Nawab of Delhi, in revenge of the defeat, instigated Marathas to attack Suraj Mal. The Marathas laid siege over the Kumbher fort on January 1, 1754. Suraj Mal fought with bravery and gave strong resistance. The Marathas could not conquer the Kumbher fort. The Marathas were defeated by Afghan armies at the Third Battle of Panipat and a hundred thousand Maratha survivors reached Suraj Mal�s territory while returning south, sans arms, sans clothes and sans food. Maharaja Suraj Mal and Maharani Kishori received them with tender warmth and hospitality, giving free rations to every Maratha solder or camp follower. The wounded were taken care of till they were fit to travel. Thus, Maharaja Suraj Mal spent no less than three million rupees on their sick and wounded guests.
Maharaja Suraj Mal died on 25 December 1763 in war with Najib-ud-dola. At the time of his death Maraja Suraj Mal�s Empire included Agra, Dholpur, Mainpuri, Hathras, Aligarh, Etah, Meerut, Rohtak, Faruqnagar, Mewat, Rewari, Gurgaon and Mathura. He was succeeded to the throne by his son, Jawahar Singh.

The Jat: Backbone of Punjab

The Jat, as we have seen, is the backbone of the Punjab; for it is from this Scythian breed that most of the Sikhs and a number of the Punjabi Mussalmans derive their sinews and stout-heartedness. If you used the word in its broad ethnic sense, signifying all classes of Jat descent, the muster would include the best part of the roll of modern Indian chivalry. But it is with the Hindu Jat, whose ancestors were not seduced or intimidated by Islam and who himself is not sufficiently attracted by the Khalsa to become a Sikh, that this chapter deals. That neither material expediency, love of honour, nor the glamour of an ideal has turned him aside from the immemorial path of his ancestors presupposes a certain stolidity, in which one is not disappointed when one knows the man.
I have passed many years in a district where there are Jats, but the Jat villager is not the same man as the Jat sepoy, and I did not make acquaintance with the sepoy breed until I ran across the bomb-havildar of the 6th Jats in Mesopotamia.....

Gehlot and Maderna together after a decade

Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot and veteran Congress & Jat leader Parasram Maderna were seen together on a public platform nearly after 12 years. In fact, it was Maderna's daughter-in-law, Leela, who had invited Gehlot as chief guest for loan and dividend distribution programme of Rajasthan State Co-operative Bank (Apex Bank). She is the chairperson of the bank. Her husband and cabinet minister in the Gehlot government Mahipal Maderna was also present in the programme. Significantly enough, both Gehlot and Maderna senior who have had an uneasy relationship for more than a decade when the former was made the chief minister overlooking the latter's claim after 1998 Assembly elections, also praised each other during the function in Maderna's native village Chadi on Sunday. Remembering Maderna's role in his political rise, Gehlot said, "I cannot forget Madernaji's role when I became first Union minister from Jodhpur in Indira Gandhi's government."
He also reminisced about the night halt with Maderna in Chadi village 31 years ago. "Madernaji campaigned for me when I contested my first election," Gehlot said. He also said that the young leaders should use experience of old generation. Accepting olive branch offered by the CM, Maderna who belongs to the generation of stalwart Jat leaders like Nathuram Mirdha, Daulatram Saran and Kumbha Ram Arya showered praise on Gehlot. He praised Gehlot's work as the chief minister. However, the newfound bonhomie between the two estranged leaders is a signal of changing equation in the internal politics of in the ruling congress that would create ripples in the party. It may also affect long pending decision on the new PCC chief.

Mahendra Singh Tikait passes away

Jat leader and Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) president Mahendra Singh Tikait, who headed several farmer agitations, died here this morning after prolonged illness. He was 76.

NCBC to review decision of OBC status to Jat

The government on Tuesday notified a rule that would allow the National Commission for Backward Classes — a statutory body — review its own decision of rejecting inclusion of a caste group in backward class list. The amendment comes after a protracted agitation by the Jats demanding their inclusion in Central list of OBCs. The NCBC, in 1998, had rejected the OBC status to Jats.The NCBC (constituted under an Act of Parliament of 1993) examines requests for inclusion of a community in the Central List of Backward Classes, hearing complaints for and against and thereafter tenders advice to the Central government. But the present rules do not allow the commission to review its own advice. The notification of May 3 vests in the Commission the power to review any advice tendered by it to the government. “Aggrieved may apply to the Commission for the review of such advice in accordance with relevant provisions of the Civil Procedure Code.” “The Commission will have the power to review its advice in accordance with the relevant provisions of the CPC relating to review by Civil Courts,” the notification said.
A blockade of rail and road network between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh in March by the Jats resulted in major disruption of the services. Following assurance from the government to amend the rules, the Jats suspended their agitation. The fresh move might pave way for reservation for Jats in the central services, but could also re-ignite such rejected demands of other communities.

New Jat in Town - The Jat Mutation

There is a new Jat in town. And he is sick of being a son of the soil and doing the nation’s heavy lifting. In the late 1990s, when kitsch was still cool and Channel V was the best friend everyone had been waiting for, Udham Singh arrived on his haunches. Props: a buffalo, a lathi and a dangerous, deadpan sense of humour. Udham was a Borat before his time, both playing out the stereotypes of a Haryanvi Jat and puncturing the hot air balloons of English speaking urbanites. Manish Makhija, the radio jockey and music composer who played and scripted Udham Singhn, lives in Mumbai. The show might be long gone but his Jatphilia still thrives. Occasionaly he chats up young Jats in Mumbai nightclubs where, far from home, they're thrilled at the chance to to slip back into the lingo and rough hewn accents that their parents paid so much to erase out of them.
