Lucknow: The Lucknow bench of the
Allahabad High Court on Wednesday fixed April 13 as the next date of
hearing the case pertaining to blockade of road and rail
tracks by Jats agitating for reservation in jobs.
A division bench comprising Justices Umanath Singh and
Virendra Kumar Dixit fixed the next date today after a status
report was submitted by the Centre, state government and
the Railways through their lawyers.
