Bharatpur, Oct 4: Congress MLA Vishvendra Singh on Thursday said that they will launch a massive agitation demanding reservation for Jats from October 5, if demands are not fulfilled by the Rajasthan government. 

“State Government has assured us of talks today evening, if our demands are not fulfilled then from tomorrow we will launch a massive agitation demanding reservation for Jats”, he told ANI.

Earlier, Singh was arrested Tuesday seeking withdrawal of cases against Jat community members during their June 2017 protest for reservation in state jobs and educational institutions. Later, however, he was released.

He had also given an ultimatum of three days to the Vasundhara Raje government and stated he would launch another agitation if nothing done in the matter.

Rajya Sabha VP Naidu

New Delhi, Sep 20 : Soon after an unprecedented ruckus broke out in the Rajya Sabha with some House members squatting in the premises that forced the Lok Sabha to be delayed, a high-level meeting was convened at the residence of Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu.

The meeting at the Rajya Sabha Chairman’s house was believed to be over the ruckus created by MPs of certain opposition parties in the upper house earlier on Sunday where some members like TMC’s Derek O’Brien went aggressive and tore up documents. The intimidation of the Chair was not taken lightly by the Chairman, say sources.

The meeting was attended by Deputy Chairman Harivansh Narain Singh, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi and Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal.

Meanwhile, further complicating the matter, the Congress party moved a no-confidence motion against Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh Narain Singh for not entertaining opposition’s demand of a division of votes on the passage of the two agri Bills.

Congress leader Ahmed Patel while speaking to the media said, “Our demands for division were not met and the conduct of the Deputy Chairman was not according to democratic norms.” However, it is uncertain whether it came up during the high-level meet.

New Delhi, Sep 20 : The Congress has alleged that the conduct of Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh Narain Singh was “undemocratic” and the party will bring a no-confidence motion on the issue.

Congress leader Ahmed Patel while speaking to the media said, “Our demands for division were not met and the conduct of the Deputy Chairman was not according to democratic norms.”

“This is a black day as it is against farmers and the state government and favours corporate,” added Patel.

Congress leader Partap Singh Banda termed the agri Bills as “death warrants” for farmers.

After the passing of agri Bills, opposition members alleging bias sat in the House and later protested at the Parliament premises.

The opposition alleged that after the house’s time was over the Chair did not take consent of the house and demands of taking the Bills on Monday was denied as the chair went for a voice vote and demand for the division of votes was not allowed.
