Jats to get no reservation under OBC quota: Khattar
Khattar, who arrived in Rohtak for the first time after widespread violence during the nine-day-long Jat agitation virtually devastated many parts of the town, said that “the state government would not spare those found guilty of indulging in violent activities but no false case would be registered against anyone”.
“A high level probe would be conducted into the entire incident and strict action would be taken against all officers and employees of police and administration involved in this incident,” he told media after his short trip to Rohtak where he had to face angry traders and residents and was forced to retreat and leave for Delhi.
“The state government would not disturb the quota of 27 per cent reservation meant for the Other Backward Classes (OBC). The government would make a separate provision for their (Jats) reservation,” said a stern-looking Khattar, whose government has drawn flak for not being able to contain the agitation and the violence.
Communities under the OBC category in Haryana are opposing inclusion of Jats in the same category. Khattar asserted that a “thorough investigation of the entire chain of events would be conducted and conspirators would be exposed”.
Referring to the audio clip which has surfaced, in which the close aide of a senior Congress leader was allegedly trying to incite violence, he said that the clip would be “thoroughly investigated”.
