Amritsar: Radical Sikh outfit Dal Khalsa today urged Akal Takhat - top temporal seat of Sikhs - to summon Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal for allegedly seeking reservation for Jat Sikhs.

The Dal Khalsa urged Akal Takhat head Gurbachan Singh to seek Sukhbir`s explanation for his party`s "unprincipled stand" on reservation for Jat Sikhs in the OBC category.
The organisation advocated that the reservation should be based upon economic criteria rather than caste, party head H S Dhami said in a statement here.
Both the SAD and opposition Congress had sought inclusion of Jat Sikhs in the category of OBC after the Centre included Jats from Haryana in the OBC list.
