Chandigarh: In a bid to please a major vote-bank in the state, the Haryana government has urged the union government to consider its request for inclusion of Jat, Jat Sikh, Bishnoi, Ror and Tyagi castes in the central list of the state as recommended by the Backward Classes Commission.

In this regard, a written communication has been sent to the central government.

The state government has also enclosed a copy of the report of the Haryana Backward Classes Commission dated Dec 12, 2012 for reference.

“The communication has been addressed to secretary, union ministry of social justice and empowerment, Anil Goswami. The state council of ministers in its meeting held Dec 12, while accepting the recommendations of the Haryana Backward Classes Commission, decided that inclusion of the Jat, Jat Sikh, Bishnoi, Ror and Tyagi castes in the central list of Haryana state, should be taken up with the centre,” said an official spokesperson of the state government.
