While addressing a Jat Mahasabha in Rohtak’s Jassia, Malik made the announcements.
According to the Hindustan Times, Earlier, AIJASS general secretary, Ashok Balhara had said “this is betrayal by the government. They agreed to withdraw the cases in a meeting with us, but have submitted something else in the high court. In our rally on Saturday, we will take a call for new agitation”.
The Mahasabha was organised by AIJASS in response to the Haryana government submitting in the high court that it will not withdraw cases pertaining to the 2016 Jat reservation row at least till July 11, which is the next hearing in the case.
The February 2016 Jat reservation stir had turned violent, which claimed lives of at least 30 people.
