Additional District magistrate of Sawai Madhopur Mahendra Lodha told AIR that a mahapanchyat was organised under the banner of Gurjar Aarakashn Sangharsh Samiti at Malarna Doongar today after that they blocked Railway track.


Gurjar Community is enjoying reservation under OBC quota which is 23 per cent and one per cent under special backward classes. But, they are demanding 5 per cent separate quota for them for a long time. Even before this, Gujjars did agitation and blocked railway tracks and Highways many times. Many of them have lost their lives during such agitations.

The leader of Gurjar Community Col. Kirodi Singh Bainsla said that they are determined to get 5 per cent separate reservation. While, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said that state government has taken all possible steps in this direction, and now central government is to decide about the matter.
