Jat quota Stir: SC to hear Delhi govt’s plea on water supply today

New Delhi: The Supreme Court has agreed to give urgent hearing on Monday to a Delhi government petition seeking Centre’s intervention for uninterrupted water supply from Munak Canal in Haryana, which is under siege of the Jat agitators.

The petition was moved on Saturday, in which a plea was also made that the Centre should deploy army to ensure supply of water from the Munak Canal.

Delhi government’s senior standing counsel Rahul Mehra on Sunday had said that Lutyen’s zone and several other areas are not getting water and the Army should ensure that Delhi gets water immediately.

Delhi is facing a huge water crisis following demonstrations by the Jat agitators, who are demanding OBC status for the community.
