Mayawati supporting Jat Agitation - Ajit Singh

Rashtriya Lok Dal president Ajit Singh accused the Mayawati government of sponsoring and patronizing the recent Jat agitation that affected the rail movement on Lucknow-Delhi route for over two weeks causing inconvenience to thousands of commuters. However, Ajit clarified that he supports the demands of Jats for their quota in central government jobs under OBC category. Addressing a press conference in Lucknow on Saturday, Singh claimed, “Jat stir was sponsored and backed by the Mayawati government. Mayawati supported the Jat agitation as she is afraid of RLD.” Singh said that Samajwadi Party had started their agitation in UP when Jat stir was going on in J P Nagar. “Mayawati government had brutally assaulted SP workers to suppress their agitation. But no action was taken against Jat community people,” he said.
The RLD chief said that he supports the demand of Jats but he criticized the manner of agitation that cause inconvenience to public. “Agitation and dharna should be for communicating message to government but it should not affect the life of common man,” he said. He said that Jats were getting reservation in six states and their demand for the same in central services was justified.
