Haryana Govt reconstituted Panel for OBC in state

Haryana government reconstituted a commission for looking into issues related to inclusion of communities in the list of Other Backward Classes (OBC) of the State. Former justice KC Gupta of Punjab and Haryana high court would be the chairperson of the commission, said chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said in a statement. The other two members would be Jai Singh Bishnoi of Hisar and Som Dutt, an advocate from Kurukshetra, he said.
An IAS or an HCS officer of the rank of joint secretary to the Government of Haryana will be the secretary of the commission. The term of the chairperson and members of the commission will be for a period of three years, the release said. The commission has been reconstituted in the wake of recent protests by Jats demanding reservation in OBC category. The protest had resulted in disruption of rail traffic for about a fortnight at Hissar, Jind and other places.
