This was stated by Haryana Parliamentary Affairs Minister, Mr Ram Bilas Sharma while replying to the questions of media persons after attending a meeting of the State Cabinet here today. The meeting was presided over by Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal.
He said that in the all party meeting convened by Mr Manohar Lal on February 19, 2016,the Chief Minister had already made the offer and asked for unanimity on the provisions of the draft Bill.Both the INLD and the Congress had welcomed this and suggested for consultations on draft Bill before it was moved in the ensuing session of the State Assembly.
When asked about the kind of reservation quota proposed to be given to the Jats, Mr Ram Bilas Sharma said that the State Government would not disturb the quota of 27 per cent reservation meant for the Other Backward Classes.
