The Jat community in Haryana is agitating for provision of reservations and they have disrupted the normal life in many parts of Haryana.During the day, the protests had spread wider, with Jats blocking the Shimla highway near Panchkula and the Bahadurgarh road to Haryana from Delhi. Curfew was in place at several towns and districts including Rohtak, Bhiwani, Sonepat, Jhajjar, Hisar and Hansi. Due to the ongoing blockades, water supply in Delhi is affected and road transportation is halted.
Amid this crisis, a gurudwara on G T Road has come out with aid for those who are stranded. They are providing free food and accommodation for all those stranded and they are using social networking to spread the message.
“We have asked our gurudwaras to offer all help possible. People can have ‘langar’ in the gurudwaras. They will also be helped in any other way possible,” Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee President Avtar Singh Makkar told PTI.
