Gujjar Agitation: RSRTC, Rail services badly hit in Rajasthan

There were long queues at enquiry counters at the Jaipur railway station on Tuesday as passengers looked confused and anxious about the position of their trains. On the second day of the protest, more than 30 trains were diverted as the Gurjars were sitting on the tracks near Bayana. Now the Gurjars in Bhilwara are also planning to stop trains in the place on December 25. Gurjars in Ajmer are also planning to step up their agitation. The agitation could affect the rail and road traffic in these areas.
On Tuesday, three routes of the Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC) including Dausa-Mahavirji, Bayana-Karauli and Bayana-Hindaun remained affected as no bus was allowed to move on these routes. RSRTC managing director Manjit Singh said, "The buses on other routes of the state are plying normally." Besides, the Central West Railway (CWR) have cancelled trains including Janshatabdi Express and Jamuna Bridge Express as the Bharatpur-Sawai Madhopur section remained affected because of Gurjar agitation, sources said.
