Bharatpur: Members of Gujjar community today 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 here. 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 per cent reservation in government jobs under the 50 per cent legal limit, inviting them for talks.A district administration official handed over the letter to Gujjar leader Kirori Singh Bainsla.The leaders, however, rejected the talk offer saying they want the government to come up with a permanent solution.

Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje reviewed the situation last night and gave necessary directions to the police and district administration officers.Home minister Gulabchand Kataria, DPG Manoj Bhatt and others attended the meeting.
