Jat agitation LIVE: Protesters block highway again, Army takes over Munak Canal

The Jat agitation news, that claimed 12 lives, may end soon as the government on Sunday decided to bring a bill for granting OBC status to Jats. The decision was taken at a high-level meeting between Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Jat leaders, National security Advisor, Army Chief and Delhi Police Commissioner.

After the meeting, BJP leader Anil Jain, who is in charge of party affairs in Haryana, said the Jat community will get reservation in jobs and a bill will be brought in the next session of the Haryana assembly in this regard.

Jain also added that said a committee headed by a senior Union minister will be set up to look into demands of Jats.
Earlier, the Jat reservation crisis entered the national capital with the Delhi-Bahadurgarh road, next to Nangloi metro station, being blocked by protesters.
The Union government has also asked Haryana to ensure that there is no disruption in water supply to the national capital.
