New Delhi :  

People had a harrowing time on Monday morning after major traffic jams were reported across the Delhi-NCR region on Monday. Snail-pace traffic movements were observed by the office goers in morning despite the Jats had called off their quota stir on Sunday night.

The thickly populated density areas like ITO and Laxmi Nagar witnessed massive jams. The movement of vehicles was almost brought to a standstill.

The traffic flow in the city is likely to be hit severely as the agitators have announced that the magnitude of the protest will be large this time and it will be felt across Delhi.

The Centre had directed governments of Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan to invoke CrPC 144 to stop Jat protesters and has mobilised 247 companies (about 24,700 personnel) of paramilitary forces.
