New Delhi:

Jat agitation in Delhi has been called-off by the All India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti after a meeting with Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday.

AIJASS, who were demanding reservation for Jat community, had planned a massive protest at Parliament in the national capital, where massive security arrangements have been made by authorities.

No Jat agitation would mean that there will be no traffic restrictions in Delhi on Monday as ordered by Home Ministry earlier. Hence, there will be no traffic restrictions in Lutyen's Delhi, borders or in Delhi Metro. 

"All Delhi Metro stations in Delhi-NCR will remain open today and thereafter," a DMRC notification said on Sunday, "No exit will be allowed from Patel Chowk,Central Secretariat,Udyog Bhawan & Lok Kalyan Marg stns tomorrow. However, entry will be allowed."

Before meeting Khattar in New Delhi, All India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti (AIJASS) Chairperson Yashpal Malik said that their protest will be peaceful and they will decide their next course of action after the talks.
