JUH to launch ‘jail bharo’ agitation for reservation

Jamiat-Ulema-e-Hind (JUH) on Friday announced to launch a ‘jail bharo’ agitation from April 28 from Lucknow to demand reservation in jobs and admission to educational institutions at the Central and state levels.

JUH secretary general Maulana Hakeemuddin Qasmi said the non-violent agitation will continue for a month each in Lucknow and Maharashtra, followed by Tripura and New Delhi.

“In due course, we will cover each state, one after the other,” he said.

Qasmi said a total of 313 people will voluntarily offer arrests in each state.

He said before taking the decision to launch the agitation, an 18-member delegation, which included Swami Agnivesh, had met PM Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi twice in the last one year. But no progress had taken place so far, except for assurances.
