Jaipur, Feb 10: To clear extra rush due to Gujjar agitation between Sawai Madhopur-Bayana in West Central Railway, WR will run special train from Bandra Terminus to Sawai Madhopur at 20.15hrs on 10,11,12,13 and 14 Feb. It’ll depart from SWM at 13.45hrs for Bandra on 10,11,12,13&14 Feb.
Ten trains have been diverted/short terminated or cancelled today, due to Gujjar agitation between Sawai Madhopur-Bayana section (Malarna-Nimoda block section) on North-Western Railway.
The stalemate between the Rajasthan government and the agitating Gujjars continued for the second day on Saturday as the Gujjar leader Kirodi Singh Bainsla, spearheading the stir, said talks would only be held on the tracks in the open.
Bainsla rejected the government invite for talks in Jaipur, thus blocking the Delhi-Mumbai railway route . Agitators blocked railway tracks at Malarna Doongar near Sawai Madhopur; 23 trains were canceled today while 20 were diverted.
The Gujjars are demanding 5 per cent reservation in jobs and education institutes in the state. The state government has deputed Tourism Minister Vishwendra Singh and IAS officer Neeraj K. Pawan to hold talks with the Gujjar Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti.
