Bhiwani, Apr 11: Close on the heels of Jats, Brahmin Aarakshan Convenor and a former AICC member today (Apr 11) sought reservation for the community in Haryana on the economic criteria.

"Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda should take steps to fulfil the demand as Brahmins in the state are still economically backward," Convenor of Brahmin Aarakshan Umesh Sharma said at a meeting of the community members here.

He alleged that the Brahmins were being exploited in Haryana in every field.

Flaying the modus operandi of the Chief Minister, he alleged that Hooda was discriminating with Brahmin youths on the issue of government job.

Sharma said he was not only demanding reservation for Brahmins but other castes like Punjabi, Agarwal and Rajput should also be included for reservation.

Demanding that the Chief Minister should clear his stand on the issue of giving reservation to Brahmins on economic basis, Sharma also asked Congress leaders MP Arvind Sharma, former Union minister and MLA Venod Sharma and Speaker Haryana Vidhan Sabha Kuldeep Sharma to clear their stand on this issue.

He said political leaders should raise voice for Brahmin society setting aside their political interests.

Sharma said Brahmins would submit a memorandum to the Chief Minister through the Deputy Commissioner in Bhiwani on April 25 on the reservation issue.
