The Haryana State cabinet led by BJP's Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday March 28,2016 approved the Jat reservation bill.
This comes a day after the Akhil Bhartiya Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti (ABJASS), the body that spearheaded the Jat quota stir in February 2016, today threatened to resume the agitation if its demands are not met by the end of this month.
"If Jats are not accorded reservation, the next agitation would be bigger then the previous one. The Jat community is not in the mood to wait more," ABJASS president Yashpal Malik said on Sunday.
He said a meeting of representatives of the Jat community from 13 states will be held in Delhi on April 3 where an announcement will be made regarding the mode of agitation.
The draft Bill on reservation to Jats and four other castes was cleared at a cabinet meeting under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
The Bill is likely to be tabled in the ongoing budget session of the state Assembly, which is scheduled to continue till March 31,2016
The Bill proposes reservation for Jats and four other castes - Jat Sikhs, Rors, Bishnois and Tyagis -- by creating a new classification in the Backward Classes category
The government plans to provide 10 per cent reservation in educational institutions and Class-III and IV government jobs for these communities, they said.
