Jaipur: Gujjars postponed their proposed march to the Pink City, scheduled for on Wednesday, to press for quota in government jobs in the wake of their leader Kirori Singh Bainsla's hospitalisation.

"Bainsla was supposed to arrive in the morning but he could not come as he is still in the hospital. We were about to begin the march from Bhandarej (Dausa) but it has been postponed till he regains his health," Harprasad, a close aide of the Gujjar leader, said.

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

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

Harprasad said the sit-in at Bhandarej, which began on last Sunday, will continue and further course of action will be taken once Bainsla rejoins the agitation.

Meanwhile, hospital officials said Bainsla is doing well and is likely to be discharged soon.
