The country’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India had suspended its operations at its two plants in Gurgaon and Manesar as component supplies have been hit by the agitation of Jats demanding job reservation. Speaking more on the occasion, Maruti Suzuki India spokesperson told PTI, “Operations have been suspended at both the Gurgaon and Manesar plants from the second shift onwards

todayafter supplies were hit by the agitation.” When questioned as to when the operations could resume, the spokesperson stated, “We don’t know when we will restart. It will depend on the overall situation and resumption of component supplies.”

The two plants put together rolls out about 5,000 units everyday. The two-wheeler manufacturer Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India, however, said its plant in Manesar is functioning as usual and has not been hit by the agitation so far. The plant has a capacity to roll out 16 lakh units annually. Haryana remained on the boil

todayas the Jat stir unleashed fresh incidents of violence and arson in which a railway station, a police station and some buildings were set ablaze even as the Army had to use choppers to reach parts of blocked Rohtak district.

The Army was also reportedly called in nine districts of Haryana and curfew was imposed in two, along with shoot-at-sight orders, after one person died and 25 were injured during the Jat stir for quota which turned violent, with the mob indulging in widespread arson. It could not be immediately known by when the company would restart the production. With the strong presence of armed forces, it is likely that the company may resume production activity soon.
