Within hours of issuing a circular allowing its Muslim employees a two-hour break from work daily during Ramzan, the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) on Monday rescinded the directions after opposition from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Ramzan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar during which the followers of Islam fast from dawn to dusk, and pray for peace and guidance.
