Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday morning, called an emergency meeting to address the water supply situation in Delhi caused by the Jat quota agitations, said a Times of India report.

Kejriwal said that Delhi will have no water from Monday because agitators have blocked supply from the Munak canal in Haryana. The Delhi government has decided to close all schools and to ration out water to the residents of Delhi, barring the President, the Prime Minister, the Chief Justice of India, defence installations, hospitals and fire brigades.

The water shortage in Delhi; internet and mobile services' suspension in Haryana and cancellation of trains in the North, are all  consequences of the Jat community's agitation in Haryana. The Jats are demanding reservation in educational institutions and government jobs under OBC.
