Protesting Jats block roads in Bharatpur”

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.

Vishwendra Singh told DNA that the OBC commission may have submitted its report, but that does not serve their objective. "We want the government to come out clear", he said. Led by Congress leader Vishvendra Singh who also happens to the erstwhile king of Bharatpur, members of the Jat community, on Thursday evening, blocked the Alwar-Mathura rail line at Bahaj village in Deeg area of Bharatpur.

State Social justice and empowerment minister Arun Chaturvedi had said that government is positive for providing reservation to Jats in Bharatpur and Dholpur and urged the community members to call off the protest.

The commission chairman, Jitendra Goyal, submitted the report in the presence of Panchayati Raj and Rural development minister Rajendra Rathore, social justice and empowerment minister Arun Chaturvedi. He said the Jats should withdraw their agitation as the OBC Commission today presented its report to the state government. The protests have led to disruptions on six different locations, on the Kota and Agra divisions, of the Delhi-Mumbai rail route.
