Lucknow: Rashtriya Lok Dal chief Ajit Singh on Saturday slammed the UP government for abetting the Jat agitation for reservation in central services.

"Jat stir was sponsored, promoted and flared by Mayawati government," RLD supremo Ajit Singh alleged while talking to the newspersons where.

He said that while the demand of Jats were justified, but the manner in which the agitation was launched and continued was wrong.

"In democracy everyone has the right to keep his viewpoint. Chakka jams are organised only for a day with the objective of giving a message. But nobody has a right to create problems for a large section of people and annoy them," Singh said.

He said that Jats were getting reservation in six states and their demand for the same in central services was justified.

RLD chief said that the day the Jat stir started, the Samajwadi Party too launched an agitation.

"We all have seen that how brutally SP men were lathicharged and assaulted, but as Jats had protection of the government nothing happened against them," he alleged.

The RLD chief said that when the court intervened and passed an order, the agitation ended within hours.

"That too without any lathicharge," he said adding that Mayawati sponsored the agitation as it was afraid of the RLD which is a strong alternative for the BSP.
