Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted that the army had regained control from protesters of the gates of the Munak canal to the north of Delhi. He was assessing how long it would take for water to reach the city.                

Protests by the Jat caste in neighbouring Haryana state have also paralysed road and rail links and killed at least 10 in a challenge to the authority of the state and national governments run by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's nationalist party.          

Although the government bowed yesterday to the demand of the Jats for more government jobs and places in education, protest leaders have not yet decided to call off their agitation.
