The Army and paramilitary personnel on Monday took control of a canal in Haryana’s Sonepat, the key source of Delhi’s water supply.
Around 600 CRPF personnel and two columns of the Army took control over the canal at around 4 a.m. and started repair work to ensure uninterrupted water supply to Delhi, official sources said. All protesters were evicted from the site.
The action came after the Jat protests disrupted water supply to Delhi, leading to a

crisis in the national capital. The Arvind Kejriwal government had announced water rationing and closure of schools for the day.
Last night, the government had asked security forces to clear all roads, railway tracks, canals and dams in Haryana where protesting Jats were disrupting normal life.
Yielding to the pressure, the BJP last night announced setting up of a five-member committee under a senior Minister to examine the demand of the community.
