Mathura: The Akhil Bhartiya Jat Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti, a prominent organisation of Jats, has decided to launch a campaign against the Congress-Rashtriya Lok Dal alliance in the ongoing Uttar Pradesh polls.

We are "disappointed" by the Congress as we suspended our stir last year on assurance by the Centre that our demand for jobs in Central government under the OBC category would be taken within six months, Chaudhary Yashpal Mullick, National president of ABJASS told reporters On Saturday.

"We have identified 117 assembly constituencies where the concentration of Jats is more and the organisation would support any contestant, who is in a position to defeat RLD-Congress candidate," Mullick said.

"Three days prior to polling in these assembly seats, we would appeal to people to reject the Congress-RLD candidates," he added. "We, virtually would give Fatwa type call for the defeat of Congress-RLD candidates, at least three days prior to voting. It would be ensured through door-to-door communication as we have got 100 teams," he stated.

We do not have any grudge against SP, BSP or even BJP as in principle they are supporting the agitation, he said.

"We want reservation within 27 percent," he asserted.

On March 18, 2011, Jats in UP had decided to suspend their pro-quota agitation for six months, a day after their Haryana counterparts called off their three-week-long stir, which caused massive disruption of rail traffic in the north.

The decision to suspend the stir was taken by a panchayat of Jats, chaired by ABJASS president Mullick. It came in response to an assurance from the Centre that a decision on the Jats' demand for jobs in Central government under the OBC category would be taken within six months.
