HT Correspondent Gujjar agitation turned violent on Sunday after protesters in Dholpur pelted stones at police, opened fire from countrymade guns and torched police vehicles when forces tried to remove a blockade put up on the Agra-gwalior national highway. Around half a dozen policemen were injured in the violence. Police fired teargas shells to disperse the mob. Unconfirmed reports said police also fired in the air.

JODHPUR: What is their demand? How much qyota Gujjars get? They are demanding 5% reservation under special backwards classes (SBC) category, a sub-category under other backward classes reservation (OBC). The Gujjars are getting OBC reservation since 1994. They started demanding SBC reservation after they demand for giving them scheduled tribe status was rejected by a government committee. Currently, they are getting 1% reservation under most backward class (MBC) category apart from the benefit of OBC reservation. Reservation in the state stands at 50% – 16% to SC, 12% to ST, 21% to OBC and 1% to Gujjars. Previous agitations In May 2007, Gujjars blocked Agra-jaipur NH at Peepalkheda and Patoli. 28 people were killed in police firing. In May 2008, they laid siege to Delhi-mumbai rail route at Pilukapura near Bayana in Bharatpur and allegedly lynched a cop near the rail line leading to police firing that claimed 15 lives. In 2010 and 2015, they blocked railway tracks but there was no violence. So far, the Gujjars have lost over 70 people to police firing and clashes with Meenas, who were opposing their demand for ST status in 2007. Did they get 5% SBC quota earlier? Yes, three attempts have been made. The Vasundhara Raje-led government in 2008 brought a bill for 5% SBC reservation to Gujjars and four other communities. The Rajasthan high court stayed the law on December 22, 2010, and asked the state to present quantifiable data to support reservation under SBC. The government repealed the 2008 Act and introduced a new bill in September 2015 granting them SBC reservation in jobs and educational institutions run by the state government. The Rajasthan HC struck it down on December 9, 2016 on the ground that it crossed the Supreme Gujjar agitators turn violent during their blockade of national highway in Dholpur on Sunday. HT PHOTO n Chandra said there is peace in the district. “Some Gujjars blocked Hindaun City-karauli road. We convinced them to open the road but they didn’t agree.” Karauli collector Nannu Mal Pahadia imposed section 144 in Karauli on Sunday. Meanwhile, the community activists under the Gujjar Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti continued to block railway tracks near Malrana Dungar station in Sawai Madhopur. After a community mahapanchayaton Friday at Maksudanpura village, samiti president KS Bainsla with hundreds of supporters walked to the railway tracks and laid siege to them. State health minister Raghu Sharma, a member of the ministerial committee constituted by the state government to hold talks, said, “The government’s intentions are clear and doors for talks are open. On Saturday tourism minister Vishwendra Singh had visited the tracks to talk to community leaders. We appeal the activities to maintain peace and harmony, then only positive results can come.” He said the assembly has passed reservation proposals twice. “Community demands are justified but government has its limits. The ministerial committee is open for talks.” Former samiti office-bearer Himmat Singh said people who have associated with the reservation demand were nowhere in the last 13 years. “This is a drama to bake political breads. They do not wish to come to any agreement. The violence incident in Dholpur is unfortunate,” he said. “Though Kirodi Bainsla is appealing for maintaining peace, he is not followed, which indicates a conspiracy. The whole incident will malign image of Gujjar community. The protest is hijacked by a few people.” On violence, he said anti-social elements joined the protest. “The administration will see to it who all were there and why the incident happened. Gujjar leader KS Bainsla is appealing for peace and harmony; people should listen to him. The way tension was built up and vehicles were set on fire is not justified.” table; reservation has to be given while we sit on the tracks; this is the final war,” he said. FIVE CASES REGISTERED Director general of police (law and order) ML Lather said the police registered three cases against agitators and two more will be filed in Dholpur. “Cases will be registered against those violating law.” He said, “No firing was done by police and teargas shells were fired to disburse agitating mob in Dholpur. ” He said agitators are making old videos viral; people should not get misled by them. Who is leading them? Colonel Kirori Singh Bainsla has been leading the community since 2006 when they uprooted tracks in Hindaun city in Karauli. Colonel Bainsla, 85, contested 2009 Lok Sabha election on BJP ticket and lost by 317 votes. ‘PROMISE NOT KEPT’ On Dholpur violence, KS Bainsla’s son Vijay Bainsla said, “We had apprised the government about road and rail track blockades on January 18. Police opened fire in air on peaceful activists, which agitated them. The government failed to take any action on our demand, which led to this protest.” Vijay said the Congress in its manifesto promised 5% reservation and the community voted for them but now the Gehlot government is not responding. “We will get up f rom t he tracks, if they say they lied and cannot honour the promise. They need to take a stand as the community is feeling cheated. There will be no talks over a TRAINS CANCELLED The stir affected rail traffic; 35 trains have been cancelled and 70 diverted, said officials. Kota authorities said Madgaon-nizamuddin express, KochuveliChandigarh express , MadgaonChandigarh express, Kota-patna-kota express, Kotamandsore-kota express were cancelled.

CM APPEAL CM Gehlot said holding protest is justified but sitting on railway tracks is not legal. He urged Gujjar leaders to start talks. “Earlier also there had been dialogues, which led to important decisions. The government is open for talks and has constituted a ministerial committee.” The vehicles torched by the agitators.

Currently, it becomes very chaotic for the family members to meet the inmates due to rush of visitors on any given day. A large number of visitors have to return home without meeting the prisoners.
