Haryana: Jat agitators to block roads to Delhi? Zeenews Bureau

Hisar: Jat agitators seeking reservation in government jobs for the
community in the Other Backward Classes (OBC) category have threatened
to intensify their stir if the demand was not met.

The agitators yesterday had served an ultimatum asking Haryana's Hooda
government to unconditionally release by Friday all those who had been
taken into custody during the movement.

All India Jat Aarakshan Sangarsh Samiti, which is spearheading the
protests, yesterday said they will give the government time till
Friday afternoon to act after which they will intensify their stir and
block all the roads to Delhi and other parts besides launching their
agitation in other parts of the country.

Hisar, located 155 kms from the national capital, had been virtually
under a siege y the protesters demanding OBC quota.

District authorities in Hisar in Haryana called in the Army on
Wednesday after agitators set a police station on fire and ransacked
and damaged a bank and its ATM in escalated violence following the
death of a youth in police firing on Tuesday.
