Rajasthan University exam postponed due to Gujjar Protests jamming highways

In order to conduct university examinations conveniently for the students, Rajasthan University is planning to postpone the university examinations, commencing from February 13, 2019, due to the continued agitations by the Gujjars jamming all state highways making it inconvenient for the students to reach examination centers.

The Further notification for the examinations, for which over 1 lakh 42 thousand students will be appearing, will be declared soon.

The Registrar of the university Kesar Lal Meena said, “The students at the examination centers in Mahua and Dausa might have a problem as due to the ongoing protest, roads are jammed and section 144 is enforced in many districts of the state. We do not want to take any risk, so we decided to postpone the examination and further decision will be taken once the situation becomes in control.”

The continued agitation held in half of the districts in the state has been reported to be jamming all Highways, roads and rail network, through which they are observed to be demanding 5% reservation in the government services and education. Due to this, it has been observed that the problem will become problematic, causing inconvenience to districts like Tonk, Dholpur, Karauli, Sawai Madhopur, and others enforcing Section 144 of IPC. The solution for the same will be discussed during the meetings of Gujjars with the government.
