New Delhi, May 31 : Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil today said that the Centre will provide all help to the Rajasthan Government to restore peace in the State, as violence continues due to Gujjars demanding Scheduled Tribe (ST) status indulged in acts of violence and arson.

After the weekly meeting of the Union Cabinet Patil said: "We discussed the current situation in Rajasthan and briefed about the Centre's assistance to the Rajasthan Government and the manner in which the State Government is handling the situation."

"We assured to provide all help to the State Government to resolve the issue peacefully. There is only one objective that peace should be restored in the State and the issue raised should be sorted out by the State Government," Patil added.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Rajnath Singh has said that his party was constantly monitoring the situation in Rajasthan.

Singh told reporters in Panaji: "There is no threat to the State Government and it is stable".

Terming the incidents in Rajasthan as "unfortunate", Singh said that he was in constant touch with the State Government.

Meanwhile, Gujjar leaders from Dausa have agreed to meet Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje Scindia but they have refused to back down on their demand for ST status.

The protests began on Tuesday in support of the Gujjar community's demand for ST status as promised by the BJP

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

The issue of job and education quotas for lower castes and tribal people has often sparked controversy and protests in India.
