The Congress party is absent in all such agitations," he said.

Haryana's Jats believe the ground is slipping beneath their feet

Fifty kilometres west of Delhi, in the district of Jhajjar in Haryana, a group of young men in bright coloured sneakers were running on a highway that cut through fields of millet and paddy. Driving past them in his white-coloured hatchback was Bharpoor Singh Jakhar, the district president of the Adarsh Jat Mahasabha, a community organisation of Jats. "Our boys aren’t running for fun or fitness," he said wryly. "They are running for jobs.”
The Jats are an agrarian middle caste that dominates the political and economic life of Haryana and parts of western Uttar Pradesh. Despite this, they have come to believe that they are lagging behind others. “Our boys train hard because they know the only jobs they can get are those in the armed forces and the only quota they can avail is the sports quota," said Jakhar, a middle-aged man with a long face that ends in a beard.

Jats must unite, become a political force to win quota fight: Renuka Chaudhary

Senior Congress leader Renuka Chaudhary today called upon the Jat community, agitating for reservation under the OBC category, to campaign unitedly for their rights and suggested setting up of a core committee and formulating an action plan to meet their goals. Chaudhary, who is the women president of All India Jat Mahasabha, said the community should "make themselves a force to be reckoned with and a major force in the vote back politics which no leader can ignore".  "Till you are a force to reckon with and work unitedly, you cannot win over your rights," she said at a meet of the Jats here, coming against the backdrop of the Supreme Court setting aside a notification to include Jats in the central list of OBC category.
The apex court had in July dismissed the plea of the Centre seeking a review of its March 17 verdict quashing OBC reservation for Jats. A senior leader of the community said that though the court has struck down reservations for them, they would continue to press their demand with the government.
