New Delhi: The Jat community will get reservation in jobs and a bill will be brought in the next session of the Haryana assembly in this regard, a senior BJP leader said on Sunday.
BJP leader Anil Jain, who is in charge of party affairs in Haryana, said this here after a meeting of central ministers, BJP leaders and leaders of the Jat community and Khaps with Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
Delhi is facing “a very serious water crisis” because of Jat protests in Haryana and water is to be strictly rationed in the city, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday. Only a handful of VIPs and essential services will be exempt.
“Barring (the) president, prime minister, Chief Justice of India, defence installations, hospitals (and) fire brigade, water (is) to be equally rationed amongst all,” Kejriwal told the media.
With hundreds of Jat youths taking control of the agitation and indulging in arson and looting, the focus of the Jat agitation, which was to demand reservation in government jobs and educational institutions, has led to mindless destruction of government and private property.
Hooligans, who have joined the ranks of Jat demonstrators, have run amok by setting government and private property on fire, burning buses and private vehicles, blocking roads and highways, disrupting trains and uprooting tracks and indulging in looting and arson.
