JP Nagar/Hisar: The Jat leaders threatened to intensify their agitation as the talks between the Central government and members of the Jat community failed to break the deadlock on Wednesday.

The talks between Cabinet Secretary K M Chandrasekhar and a delegation of All India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti in New Delhi failed to reach any conclusion, Samiti president Yashpal Malik said.

The ongoing agitation by Jat community demanding reservation in Central government jobs entered fifth days. The rail services in UP and Haryana remained paralysed. The rail lines of Hisar with Panjab and Rajasthan was completely disconnected.

Hundreds of protesters led by the Jat organisation have been camping at the railway tracks near Kafurpur station in JP Nagar district since March 5.

"We will continue to demand the inclusion of the Jat community and 27 per cent quota for Jats at the Central government level. Till the government takes a decision in our favour, we will not go anywhere," Malik said. We will also extend our agitation in other places if our demands are not met immediately, he said.

"Diversion of the route is the only solution to the problem till normalcy is restored at Kafurpur railway station as safety of passengers is our first priority," A K Singhal, ADRM Moradabad, said.

"We have followed up the matter with the state government and contacted the Chief Secretary of Uttar Pradesh requesting him to solve the problem and maintain law and order," S K Budla Koti, G M Northern railways, said.
