Bharatpur, Dholpur Jat to get OBC reservation benefit:
Bharatpur, Dholpur Jat community will get OBC reservation benefit now. Union Cabinet cleared reservation for the Jat community under the other backward castes quota. According to sources Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) chief Ajit Singh was keen to clear reservation for Jats. The Congress had, however, dismissed reports that the Centre was trying to woo Jats ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari had said, "Not everything can be seen through the lens of election. This demand has been long pending which Cabinet has accepted."
Ajit Singh, Vasundhara welcome Cabinet nod for Jat reservation. Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje said Jats all over Rajasthan were already getting the benefits of reservation in Central government jobs and educational institutions. “We had demanded inclusion of Jats from Bharatpur and Dholpur in the Central OBC list. So this is a victory for us”.
Dr. Gyan Prakash Pilania on Jat Community:
Some magical quotes by Dr Gyan Prakash Pilania, Former director general of Rajasthan police (DGP) and President of Jat Mahasabha during 1999 on Jat community and Political relation with BJP and congress. "The BJP had no part in the matter at all. Jats were never the fans of BJP. We had no conspiracy with the BJP at all. The people rose on their own. Now the BJP is also realising our strength and extending a hand of friendship. But we have taken no funds, nothing from the BJP. The Jat Mahasabha is a strange organisation, my friend. It is a social phenomena. It is a people's revolt. It is a magnificent obsession with them. By God's will, we will win.
