In Rajasthan, Gurjar agitation continued and Delhi-Mumbai railway track is still blocked at Malarna Dungar in Sawai Madhopur district. Due to this, 26 trains are plying through diverted routs and 12 others cancelled yesterday. Agitation has now spread to Dholpur, Bundi and other districts.

AIR correspondent reports that the protesters also blocked road traffic at Gudla in Kaurali, Asind in Bhilwara and Nainva in Bundi district. An intelligence has been sounded in Dausa district also. DGP law and order M L Lather told AIR that total five FIRs have been registered in connection with the Gurjar agitation. 

Cabinet Minister Vishvendra Singh constituted a 30 member committee of Gurjars who will now mediate between the protesters blocking railway tracks and the government.
