Minister cautions people against vested interests


As fresh pro-quota agitation by Jats continued for the 12th consecutive day on Thursday, Haryana Finance Minister Capt Abhimanyu cautioned the people, saying “it is a political conspiracy by some vested interests”.

The Minister said the present BJP dispension in the State had got a law enacted for reservation and then recommended it be incorporated in 9th schedule of the Constitution.

“But some people are trying to spoil the peaceful atmosphere of the State by misleading the youth,” an official release quoted him as saying.

He urged the youth not to get mislead and suggested the members of all communities to act wisely.

“Political conspiracy”

Mr Abhimanyu, whose house in Rohtak was burnt down by miscreants during Jat quota stir in February, said the current protests in the State were not being made to get benefit of reservation “but it is a political conspiracy by some vested interests.”

He said that some people see themselves being trapped in the investigation into incidents of arson during agitation and they fear that they would soon be behind bars. - PTI
