Threaten to block power, water supply to Delhi

Taking cue from the Patels of Gujarat, the Jats of Uttar Pradesh have threatened to launch an agitation for reservation for the community, including cutting power and water supply to Delhi.

Vowing to have “reservation at any cost”, the community leaders at a rally here said they will also resort to blocking rail and road traffic as part of their agitation. Former Congress MP Harendra Malik said the agitation would be taken to every part of the country.

The campaign’s chief coordinator, Dharmveer Chaudhary, said the fight for reservation would be fought on three fronts — government, court and public.

He said Jats from across the country, including Uttar Pradesh, would soon camp in Delhi and stop supply of power, water and essential commodities to press for their demand.

Weak perusal

“We would block rail, and road traffic throughout the country if government did not meet our demands,” he said. Chaudhary alleged that due to weak perusal of the Centre, the community suffered heavy loss as the Supreme Court struck down reservation for them under the OBC category. Jat leader Chaudhary Surendra Singh said they would support Patels if the latter supports their demands in return.
