New Delhi: Jat leaders have postponed their stir, which they had planned to carry out in the national capital on Monday, for 15 days after meeting Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, as per reports.

The meeting was earlier slated to be held on Friday, which could not be materialised, leading to immediate provocation of the community. A day before state education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma had said that breakthrough would be achieved by next day. Last week, during a debate in the state Assembly INLD leader Abhay Singh Chautala had accused the BJP Government in the state and the Congress of trying to play politics on the issue. They had given a call to hold dharnas on the Delhi border, block all highway roads in order to put more pressure on the government for their demands.
