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.
