Gujjar quota stir enters day 2, leaders reject government talk offer

Rejecting the state government’s offer for talks, members of Gujjar community on Friday continued their agitation here for the second day to press for five per cent quota in jobs which led to disruption of train services.

Hundreds of agitators squatted on tracks along the Delhi-Mumbai route, severely hitting road and rail traffic.

Several trains have been diverted while road traffic on Bharatpur-Hindaun road has also been affected, police said.

The state government today sent a letter to the Gujjar leaders, who are demanding five percent reservation in government jobs under the 50 percent legal limit, inviting them for talks.

The leaders, however, rejected the talk offer saying they want the government to come up with a permanent solution.

“In a letter, the government asked us to hold talks today but we want a permanent solution of our problem and have given an ultimatum to the government,” Himmat Singh, spokesperson of the Gujjar Arkashan Sangharsh Samiti which is leading the agitation told a news agency.
