Jat agitation disrupts rail services

Jat agitation continued to disrupt train services in many parts of Haryana on Wednesday as well. 66 trains including Shatabadi and Rajdhani were cancelled on the northern and north-western sector and many trains were diverted. The Jats are demanding a quota for their community in government jobs. Leaders of Jat Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti will meet today at Narwana and decide whether to continue talks with Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. On Tuesday, the Barwala power plant in Haryana stopped operation in face of the Jat agitation which paralysed freight movement and passenger train services to northern states.
With the agitating Jat leaders setting March 28 as the deadline for the Centre to decide on their demand for putting them in the OBC category, different groups in Delhi and its suburbs are holding the stock-taking meetings on March 26. Sources claimed local leaders have set that day to devise a strategy to paralyze the capital in case the central government turns down their demand.
