Venkaiah Naidu to head panel on Jat quota demand

The Union government on Sunday formed a committee headed by Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu to look into the demand of the Jat community for reservation in central government jobs.

The move comes on the heels of the BJP announcement that a bill for giving OBC status to Jats will be brought in the coming Haryana Assembly session and a high-powered committee will be set up to examine the quota demand .

BJP general secretary in-charge of Haryana Anil Jail also appealed to the Jats who have been protesting in Haryana to call off their agitation, which has badly hit life in the region, and return to their homes as their demands have been met.

“A bill will be brought in the coming session of the Haryana Assembly for granting OBC status to the Jats in the State,” Mr. Jain said after a Jat delegation had an hour-long meeting with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
