Minister clarifies his stand on Jat reservation

2014-08-16 15-41-56-krishan panwarChandigarh, Sep 27 -Clarifying his stand on Jat reservation, Haryana Transport Minister Krishan Lal Panwar said he had never opposed reservation to Jats and his party also wanted that reservation should be fair to all. The Minister said he was not against Jat reservation and his opinion on the matter was the same as that of his party’s. Therefore, the party and the central government had presented a strong case in support of reservation to the Jat community before the Supreme Court, Mr Panwar said. He also said in his personal opinion, every backward section of the society should be given the benefit of reservation on the basis of economic status. However, it should be ascertained at the time of granting reservation that the reservation presently being given to Scheduled Castes and Backward Classes is not tampered with, he added.
