“We have written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde supporting the demand of Jats in the state to include them in the OBC category,” said Javaid Rahi, Secretary, Tribal Research and Cultural Foundation.

The Union government had recently recommended the inclusion of Jats in the state list of OBCs in nine states excluding Jammu and Kashmir. “The inclusion of Jats would enable them to avail the benefits of reservation to OBCs,” he added.
