Delhi schools remained closed today as part of water rationing. Faced with cut in water supply from Haryana due to the Jat agitation, Delhi government had announced closure of schools as part of water rationing in the city to deal with the crisis. Speaking to media yesterday after a high-level emergency meeting, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said, barring Rashtrapati Bhavan, offices and residences of the Prime Minister, Chief Justice of India, defence installations, hospitals and fire brigade, water will be rationed equally among others.

He said disruption in water supply to Delhi from Haryana's Munak canal due to the Jat agitation has severely affected the city and appealed to the people to conserve water as much as possible. 
The Delhi government had last night moved the Supreme Court, seeking a direction to the Centre to intervene and ensure water supply from Munak canal. The Chief Minister said all the water treatment plants have been shut and even if Haryana releases water today it will take at least 24 hours more to restore the supply.
