Jat Quota Stir: 3,000 paramilitary forces sent to Haryana, 300 to Munak canal

News Agencies | Updated on: 14 February 2017, 5:58 IST

Amidst simmering tension over the threat of Jats resuming their agitation for quota, the Centre has sent 3,000 paramilitary forces to Haryana to ensure peace and deployed another 300 personnel to guard Munak canal which supplies water to Delhi.

"All arrangements have been made for Haryana and forces have been sent," a senior Home Ministry official said today.

Additional paramilitary forces were deployed in all sensitive places, some spots on highways and for Munak canal, the official said.

Large-scale violence and destruction of public and private properties had taken place during the week-long Jat agitation in Haryana in which about 30 people were killed last month.

Protesters also damaged the Munak canal, located about 100 kms from Delhi, disrupting water supply to the national capital for several days.
