Jat quota

Delhi Metro announced on Sunday it will run normal services on Monday following the Jat leaders' decision to postpone their agitation but said services will be hit in four stations.

The advisory further said that five entry points will be closed from 11 a.m March 19 onwards.These entry points are Ring Road to San Martin Marg, Amrita Shergill to Lodhi Road, Max Muller Road to Lodhi Road, Archbishop Makarios Marg from Lodhi Road and all lanes leading to Panchkuiyan Road except Mandir Marg, RK Ashram and Hospital Road.

"The government will now work according to the law and will undertake a survey and check ground realities so that the decision that we finally take will stand in court", PP Chaudhary, Minister of State for Law and Justice said. The ongoing Jat agitation crisis in the national capital region on Sunday was called off after Jat agitators and government mutually agreed on post-pone the protest. Despite the Jat agitation planned for Monday in the national capital being called off, the security arrangements will remain in force till next orders, police said on Sunday.The Jat agitation that was planned in Delhi for Monday was called off on Sunday after their leaders had a discussion with Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar.

As directed by Delhi Police, services will not be available at Yellow line stations at Gurgaon, Blue Line stations at Noida and Violet Line stations at Faridabad.

This comes as huge relief to students of NCR appearing for board exams, besides those heading to office and even the current Parliament session.

Haryana chief minister ML Khattar said his government and the central government will soon begin the process of giving Jats reservation, or the Indian term for affirmative action. Flanked by two central ministers PP Chaudhary and Chaudhary Birendra Singh, the final decision came nearly after four hours when both parties made an official announcement.

The leader of the jat agitation movement, Yashpal Malik also reiterated Khattar's assurance.
