Ghaziabad: Rapid Action Force has been deployed at Muradnagar upper Ganga canal, which was targeted by a group of Jats a couple of days back seeking reservation in higher education and government jobs, officials said today.

RAF also staged a flag march in the Jat community dominated villages last evening and today morning.

District Magistrate Hredesh Kumar said nobody will be allowed to take the law in hands and water supply from the regulator will not be allowed to be disrupted again.

President of Jat Sangarsh Samiti, Yashpal Malik, who led agitation on June 13 that forced disruption of water supply in parts of Delhi, said the Jat community maha panchayat will again assemble to decide the next course of action.

A group of Jats, demanding reservation in higher education and government jobs, had blocked water supply to the city from Upper Ganga canal in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh.

Members of the community, led by local BKU and Lok Dal leaders, held a panchayat (meeting) in support of their demand for quota at Muradnagar in Ghaziabad district and blocked water supply to two water treatment plants in Delhi, which meets about 40 per cent of the city's total water requirements.
