Jaipur, May 25 (UNI) Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje today undertook an aerial survey of Gujjar agitation infested Bayana region even as barring minor incidents, the bandhs observed in several towns against the police firing passed off peacefully.

Ms Raje flew to Bayana this afternoon and undertook an aerial survey of the troubled areas of Pillukapura and Kanvaria.

She had a brief meeting with the concerned officials to review the situation.

Ms Raje, who took initiative for a truce by inviting Gujjar leader Col Kirodi Singh Bainsla for a dialogue yesterday night, reiterated today that she was willing for talks, but the latter turned down the invitation.

Talking to reporters here, the Chief Minister appealed to the Gujjar community for maintaining peace and also warned the violators of law.

She said those indulging in breaching of law and order would be dealt with an iron hand.

The Chief Minister further renewed her invitation to Bainsla for talks, saying if convenient, the Gujjar leader might come to Bayana for talks.

However, Bainsla, leading a 'dharna' at railway tracks in Pillukapura in Bayana region with the bodies of 12 police firing victims, showed no inclination for talks.

On her return to the state capital, the Chief Minister held another round of discussions with her ministerial colleagues at a hurriedly summoned meeting at her residence.
