Jats give March 20 deadline to govt to meet demand

Chandigarh, Mar 17 (PTI) Train services in northern India were disrupted for yet another day as Jat leaders in Haryana today remained firm on their decision to continue their stir demanding quota for the community in government jobs under OBC category and threatened to give a statewide bandh call next week if their demands were not met by March 20.
"We are firm on our demand and are waiting for the government's response. If our demand is not met by March 20, we will further intensify our stir and call for Haryana bandh the next day," Hawa Singh Sangwan, Haryana State President of All India Jat Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti, the body spearheading the agitation, said. The ongoing stir by Jats has badly affected rail traffic in northern India.
