He had said that the commission has submitted it's recommendations and the government would consider them with regards to OBC quota demands.

Though Jats from other districts have quotas, these two districts have been exempted from reservation. The court had then directed the state government to survey the status of Jat community in order to see if they were in need of reservation.

The Jats of Bharatpur and Dholpur have been demanding reservation under the Other Backward Classes (OBC) for sometime now. The rail routes of Agra-Bandakui was also reportedly affected. The official also said a goods train was stopped by the agitators near Deeg in Bharatpur. "Already too much time has passed; we can not let the state government sit over the report until the next elections, while we continue to be deprived of our rights", Singh said.Social justice and empowerment minister Arun Chaturvedi later issued a statement saying the state government wants to grant OBC status to Bharatpur-Dholpur Jats and would "soon" act on the Commission's recommendations.

"People are agitated and they don't want any assurances". Now, the Jats in Rajasthan have taken a leaf out of their book to read out to the government their right to reservation in government jobs. The long-pending demand has not been fulfilled.
