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.

This might lead to massive power shortage in northern India.

The Haryana High Court on Tuesday directed the state government to tell the court by Thursday regarding steps taken to normalise situation.
