HR-JATS 2 LAST

first_img“The state government has time till March 17. So far, “The state government has time till March 17. So far, the government has not responded to any of our demands,” said Hawa Singh Sangwan, the president of the Akhil Bhartiya Jat Mahasabha. “On March 17, we will decide on the next mode of action on whether to block roads, railway tracks or any other type of agitation,” Samiti Chief Yashpal Malik said earlier even as he was not contactable today. Malik had said the state government must bring a Bill in the ongoing budget session of the Assembly to ensure reservation for Jats. Jat community members will resort to go on agitation if the state government failed to act on reservation issue.Meanwhile, a bill to grant special Other Backward Classes status to Jats and four other communities to entitle them to reservations in government jobs and educational institutions is unlikely to be introduced in the state Assembly today.Official sources said there are some technical issues due to which the introduction of the bill is being delayed.Some within the ruling party are stated to be opposed to introducing the bill under threat of Jat bodies, sources said.Sports Minister Anil Vij in a tweet said, “Jat Reservation bill will be brought, but Jats must stop giving threats.”Jats are demanding 10 per cent quota in jobs and educational institutions, besides withdrawal of FIRs registered against the protesters, compensation to those killed during the stir and action against BJP MP from Kurukshetra Raj Kumar Saini for his anti-Jat reservation stand. After pro-quota Jat stir led to large scale property damage, besides killing of 30 people, the BJP government last month buckled under the pressure and had announced that it would bring a Bill in the upcoming Budget session to provide reservation to Jat community along with other four castes-Jat Sikhs, Tyagis, Bishnois and Rors.advertisementWith state machinery including police administration completely paralysed during the violent Jat agitation last month, arsonists and mob had gone berserk and looted shops, commercial establishments, schools etc and later burnt them down. Rohtak was the epicenter of violence that also engulfed several other districts like Jhajjar, Jind, Sonipat, and Kaithal. PTI AKA SUN CHS AKK AKKlast_img read more

Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact There are also question marks on how much of a role former Oakland Raider and Kansas City Chief Tyvon Branch will play for his new team as he hasn’t been a primary starter since 2012.But the impending new secondary might not be too much of a hindrance for the Cardinals, as Rosenthal notes, “they have the most projected wins in football by Football Outsiders, a campaign platform we can support.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Following a 13-3 record and a trip to the NFC Championship Game, the Arizona Cardinals were one of the best teams on both sides of the ball last season. But no team is perfect.NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal took a look at every NFC team and labeled each squad’s biggest weakness.Rosenthal noted the Cardinals “could have the most loaded roster in the NFL. They also have only one offensive tackle that has ever played an NFL game.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments   Share   That one offensive tackle is Jared Veldheer, with the rest of the offensive tackle group consisting of two rookies and four guys with one year under their belt, including 2015 first round pick D.J. Humphries. But Rosenthal thinks the Cardinals have a weakness that’s even more glaring.Justin Bethel, who excelled as a No. 4 cornerback and special teamer, now stands second on the team’s depth chart. He recently underwent foot surgery. Patrick Peterson is coming off ankle surgery, while Tyrann Mathieu is recovering from a torn ACL. Third-round pick Brandon Williams was seen as a project at cornerback after splitting time as a running back in college. Even though the Cardinals play a ton of safeties and Mathieu essentially plays cornerback, the Cardinals have a shocking lack of NFL-caliber cornerbacks on the roster. Don’t be surprised if they add a veteran or two.It’s hard to know how much of a toll the injuries will have on Bethel, Peterson and Mathieu going forward, but it’s easy to know the Cardinals’ secondary will look a lot different in 2016, as two primary starters are no longer on the roster. The Cardinals lost Rashad Johnson, who started 14 games and had five interceptions in 2015, to the Tennessee Titans. Jerraud Powers, who started 13 games and had one interception to go along with two fumble recoveries, is now with the Baltimore Ravens.
