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."

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”.
