सीकर ठिकाने की चाल

ठाकुर देशराज[1] ने लिखा है ....सीकर ठिकाने ने इस बीच आंदोलन को ठंडा करने के लिए एक और चाल चली। राव बहादुर चौधरी लालचंद जी की सिफारिश किए हुए किसी चौधरी राजसिंह को सीकर में फौजदार (मुंशिफ) और ठाकुर झम्मन सिंह जी मंत्री जाट महासभा के एक स्वजन ठाकुर साहब सिंह जी को तहसीलदार के ओहदे पर लेकर बाहरी जाटों की जबान बंद करनी चाही किंतु इससे उसे फायदा कुछ भी नहीं हुआ। यूं तो उसने कुदन के चौधरी सुखदेव जी को जाट आंदोलन के खिलाफ इस्तेमाल किया किंतु जब दावानल लगती है तो उसे ओस के कण नहीं भुजा सकते।
