Gujjar Protest in Rajasthan

Gujjar agitation and movement in Rajasthan, north western state of India, is stirring up since last few days and central government has transferred 1500 security personal to Rajasthan to assist state government of Rajasthan to help meet the crisis like situation due to the result of constant agitations by Gujjars of Rajasthan.

Agitation started because the Rajasthan High Court on Wednesday ruled against the 5% reservation demand by the Gujjars in government jobs. Gujjar Community is not taking this lightly and may intense the agitation by roadblocks and rail-roko andolans.

A division bench of Rajasthan High Court consisting of chief justice Arun Mishra and justice Mahesh Bhagwati ruled against the Gujjars and put the reservation demand in abeyance for one year. Gujjar leader Col Kirori Singh Bainsala reacted unhappy against the ruling and said that the blockade of railway and roads is going to be carried out by Gujjar community of Rajasthan.

High court suggested that it may be against the constitution of  India and State Government should atleast once carried out the survey before deciding upon the economically and other backward communities of Rajasthan like Gujjars, Rebaris, Raikas and Gadiya Luhar.
