Gujjar agitation affects rail and bus movement in Rajasthan; 23 trains diverted, 200 buses suspended | Jaipur News


JAIPUR: The Gujjar agitation has continued to affect the Delhi-Mumbai rail route due to which many trains on this route were diverted via Bandikui-Jaipur. Likewise bus services in the interiors of districts including Karauli, Bharatpur, Sawai Madhopur and Dausa could not be operated by the Rajasthan State Roadways Transport Corporation (RSRTC). At least 23 trains were diverted via Bandikui-Jaipur while at least 200 buses in rural interiors of Rajasthan in the Gujjar dominated villages have been suspended.
According to the sources from the north western railways (NWR), at least 23 trains on the Delhi-Mumbai rail route which is blocked between Hindaun City to Bayana have been diverted via Bandikui and Jaipur.
“Since Sunday we have been receiving diversions of trains from northern railways (NR) and west central railways (WCR). Till Monday evening at least 23 trains have been diverted via Bandikui and Jaipur,” said a senior officer of NWR.
Likeswise Rajasthan State Roadways Transport Corporation(RSRTC) has decided to stop its buses in the rural interiors of Gujjar dominated villages. “At least 200 buses have been suspended in Gujjar dominated districts and villages in Dausa, Sawai Madhopur, Karauli, Bharatpur and some parts of Alwar,” said Sudhir Bhati, chief manager(Public relations)
However, unlike every Gujjar agitation, the Jaipur-Delhi rail route via Dausa and Jaipur-Agra road route via Dausa is witnessing smooth movement of trains and buses respectively. “That is primarily because a Gujjar fraction headed by Himmat Singh has not supported Kirori Singh Bainsla’s agitation this time. Thus Gujjar of Dausa are not into any ransacking and getting into road blocks and blocking rail traffic,” said a senior police officer.
