Jaipur: Gujjar leader Kirori Singh Bainsla
called off a sit-in and postponed a march to the Pink City,
proposed for on Wednesday, to press for quota in government jobs due
to his hospitalisation.

Bainsla`s close aide Harprasad said the sit-in, which
began on Sunday in Dausa, has been called off after
consultations with the Gujjar leader.

"Bainsla is not keeping well. He also has to attend a
religious function on November 27 in Dausa. Taking all these
into consideration he has called off the sit-in and postponed
the march," he said.

The decision on the next date for the agitation would be
taken soon, Harprasad said.

Bainsla was admitted to a private hospital at Sikar road
here yesterday after he complained of uneasiness.

"Doctors have advised Bainsla complete rest for a couple
of days and he is likely to be discharged soon," Harprasad
said.

On Sunday, Bainsla had announced a sit-in in Dausa
district`s Bhandarej area and a march to Jaipur from there if
the government did not fulfill the demands for five per cent
reservation for Gujjars in government jobs and withdrawal of
cases against those involved in previous quota stirs.
