Jat agitation turn violant, Army called to control protesters

Jat agitation in Hisar took a violent turn today as protesters torched a police post and a judge’s car. The Haryana government today sought the Army’s help in controlling the situation. The district administration has announced closure of schools for three days. Markets, hotels and fuel stations remained closed throughout the day. A curfew is likely to be imposed in Hisar and neighbouring areas. While the protesters have paralysed rail traffic for almost three weeks now, demanding OBC quota in government jobs and educational institutes, tension erupted following the alleged death of a youth, Sandeep, 20, in police firing on Wednesday. Five others are reported to have suffered bullet injuries.
Thousands hit the streets in Hisar on Wednesday morning, and the mob grew increasingly violent. There were reports of protests in Jind and Bhiwani too. Barely 100 metres from the military station, Hisar, the mob torched the Hisar cantonment police post and also looted an SBI ATM. Another SBI branch was vandalised. Hisar Deputy Commissioner Amit Agarwal said the state had asked the Centre to deploy the Army. The official vehicle of Sessions Judge, Jind, Raminder Jain, was set on fire near Hisar late last night.

Haryana Jats block rail track seeking reservation

Having failed to secure reservation for their community from the state and central governments, protestors from the Jat community blocked rail tracks in Haryana's Hisar district Monday morning. Police said the protestors blocked the tracks near Mayyar village in Hisar district, 280 km from here, disrupting rail services in the area. The agitating Jats had Sunday served a 24-hour ultimatum to the central and state governments to make an announcement regarding reservation for the Jat community in government jobs. The ultimatum ends at 5 p.m. Monday but the protestors started the first phase of their agitation Monday morning itself.
The Jats had led a three-week-long agitation in the Jat-dominated districts of Hisar, Jind and Bhiwani in Haryana in March last year seeking reservation for the community in government jobs under the Other Backward Classes (OBC) quota. They had later withdrawn the agitation after the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government assured it would take up their case with the central government. The Hooda government later set up the Haryana Backward Classes Commission to look into the reservation aspect. The commission is considering the demands of the Roar, Jat, Jat Sikh, Tyagi, Bishnoi and other communities who wish to be classified as backward classes in the state. Last year, the protesters, including women, children and the elderly, had blocked rail tracks at 15 points across Haryana. The worst affected were Hisar, Bhiwani and Jind districts.

Jat votes crucial for RLD-Congress in UP Pollls

Jat Vote bank is one of crucial node for Congress-RLD alliance in UP Assembly Election 2012 along with Muslim votes. Even though the Jats, who form RLD's core constituency, comprise just 2.6% of the electorate in UP, they are present in significant numbers in the 15 districts that go on to constitute western UP. Being the dominant caste of the region, they have over the decades played a crucial role in shaping its polity. In the post-Mandal-Masjid era, barring a short period in which they had switched their allegiance to BJP, the Jats have remained by and large loyal to RLD. Former prime minister Charan Singh, Union civil aviation minister Ajit Singh's father, is still revered by them.
Jats add up to around 6% of the vote-base in western UP, but have the potential to swing the electoral outcome in quite a few assembly seats in the districts of Bijnor, Jyotiba Phule Nagar, Muzaffarnagar, Meerut, Baghpat, Ghaziabad, Gautam Buddh Nagar, Mathura, Agra and Aligarh. In 2007 assembly polls, RLD won 10 assembly seats, securing 5.76% votes in the seats that it contested. But lets wait and watch whether Jat takes U Turn from RLD-Congress after being betrayed by offering Sub quota to Muslims/Minorities from OBC Quata by Congress led UPA Government in Central/PSU Jobs just before UP Polls which makes Jat Community a real looser in term of reservation.
