Violence-hit Rajasthan still on edge; CM Raje expresses sorrow

Tension continued to prevail in Rajasthan for the second day on Wednesday, following a police-mob clash that claimed 14 lives and injured scores of others yesterday.

Jaipur/Dausa/New Delhi, May 30 : Tension continued to prevail in Rajasthan for the second day on Wednesday, following a police-mob clash that claimed 14 lives and injured scores of others yesterday.

Meanwhile, Chief Minster Vasundhara Raje visited the injured, who are admitted in Sawai Mansingh Hospital in Jaipur, and expressed sorry for the incident.

Raje described the incident as "very unfortunate" and tried to relax the feeling of the Gujjar community and offered her government's support to their demand.

"The loss of life and public property is really unfortunate. Violence is against the tradition of Rajasthan. Whenever our people want to say something they say it in proper manner. I have always said that I will never let the people, who are trying to create this type of environment, succeed in their attempt," Raje said.

On her arrival at the hospital, Raje faced a hostile group of Gujjars outside the building, who shouted slogans against her, giving the security a difficult time.

In New Delhi, dozens of passengers waited for hours at the Bikaner House bus stands for the highway to open up for traffic. They appeared harassed and fatigued.

"There is no proper information as to when the route will open and there are no other arrangements either. No, forget about air conditioners, there is no provision of drinking water either. We only want that the route should be opened quickly so that passengers can go back," said Ashok Kumar Sharma, a passenger.

"No facility is available here. I came here at 10'clock yesterday. Even after 24 hours, we don't know when will we leave for Jaipur. The authorities are not co-operating with us. I had to sleep on the floor" said Agre Shristava, another passenger

O.P. Babbar, station in-charge, Bikaner House, said, "We are in regular contact with the officials in Jaipur and waiting for their orders to move the buses. If any passenger wants his money back we are refunding the whole amount. Around 300 passengers' money has already been refunded".

Thousands of Gujjars blocked the Jaipur-Agra National Highway at Dausa early on Tuesday, forcing police to resort to mild baton charge.

Fourteen people were killed and dozens injured after police opened fire yesterday on protesting Gujjars, demanding listing as Scheduled Tribes.

The community currently comes under the Other Backward Classes (OBC) category.
