Jaipur: Gujjar leader Kirori Singh Bainsla
was on Tuesday rushed to a private hospital here after he
complained of uneasiness.

The development, sources say, might result in
rescheduling of his march from Dausa demanding five per cent
reservation quota for Gujjars in government jobs.

However, there is no official word on this.

Bainsla began his sit-in at Dausa`s Bhandarej area on
Sunday and gave a two-day ultimatum to the government to clear
its stand on the quota issue.

He had announced he would march towards the pink city on
Wednesday if the government did not respond to his demands.

So far, there is no call from the Gujjar leader to cancel
or postpone the scheduled march but sources said it may be
rescheduled due to Bainsla`s ill-health.

"I am sick and I cannot talk now as I am in a hospital. I
hope to recover soon in order to command the agitation,"
Bainsla told.

His close aide Harprasad Gujjar said the Jaipur march has
not been cancelled so far but any final decision will be taken
taking into consideration Bainsla`s health.

"Plan of march to Jaipur still stands and hundreds of
people are participating in Bhandarez`s sit-in...future course
of action will be decided taking into consideration Bainsla`s
health," he said.

Gujjars are demanding five per cent reservation in
government jobs for the community and the matter is presently
