Jat quota stir

Khattar said the Centre and the Haryana government will begin the process of giving them reservations.

Jat leader Yashpal Malik also said, "Will take decision on coming protests in a state executive meeting on March 26".

Arrest or detain the protesters much before they enter Delhi, disallow movement of buses carrying the protesters on highways and ban tractor trolley movement, the advisory had said.

After the meeting, CM Khattar sought cooperation from people to maintain peace and harmony.

In the wake of Jat community groups' call for an agitation in the national capital on Monday, the CBSE has advised students appearing for the Classes 10 and 12 Board exams to reach their exam centres well before the scheduled time. We have called off our agitation and march towards Delhi.

The current state government has sought to meet some of their demands.

DMRC also added that they are not sure how long this move will last as they will get to know the severity of the situation only on Monday, March 20.

The protestors, led by the All-India Jat Aarakshan Sangarsh Samiti, had threatened to bring the Capital to a standstill and surround the Parliament complex.

He added that the community will call off its dharna (demonstration) from most of the places in the state, barring few where it will continue with symbolic protests.

The Jat protesters on Sunday morning turned violent in Dhan Gopal village of Fatehabad district in Haryana when they were prohibited from crossing the barricades by the police, media reports said. Metro and road transport has been curtailed and several schools have been closed in the national capital.

The Jat community, which have been demanding reservation in government jobs and educational institutions, among other things, resumed their agitation on January 29.

Violence during the Jat agitation in February 2016 in Haryana left 30 people dead and over 200 injured.

Union minister Chaudhary Birender Singh on suspension of Delhi march said that whatever has happened is in the interest of the government and the Jat community.
