Jaipur, Jun 29 (UNI) In a significant move, the Rajasthan Jat Sabha has extended its 'unconditional support" to the Congress for the next Assembly elections to be held in November.
Sabha General Secretary Sukhdev Arya said the Sabha had extended its active support to the Congress following party president Sonia Gandhi's assurance that the Congress would keep in mind the sentiments and expectations of Jat community while deciding party tickets and at post-poll stages.
Mr Arya told UNI that following mediation by Haryana Chief Minister Bhupendra Singh Hoda, a delegation of Jats had recently met Ms Gandhi to apprise her of the community's feelings and the sabha's decision.
He said now the community would do their best to make the Congress victorious in the Assembly elections.
''However, we will monitor carefully Congress' actions whether the party was really keeping its words to render justice to the community in allotment of tickets and at later stages,'' he added.
The sabha's decision assumes significance in view of ongoing campaign by Jat community which has been working for several months to negotiate with the Congress with demand of a Jat Chief Minister if the party comes in the power after elections.
