Telerik MVC Extensions were discontinued with their final Q2'13 maintenance release which was shipped on June 12th. They will not be developed or supported from this day forth.
Telerik MVC Extensions officially support jquery 1.7.x. They might work properly with jQuery 2.x to some extent, but there's might be some issues, and we do not plan to support this jquery version officially.
You may consider switching to Kendo UI Complete for ASP.NET MVC, if using this jquery version is mandatory, as this product will support current and future jquery releases.
