New Delhi, Feb 10: The Indian Railways on Sunday released a list of trains that have been canceled due to the ongoing Gujjar quota agitation in Kota Division. The blockade by Gujjar Arakshan Sangarsh Samiti chief Kirori Singh Bainsla and his supporters has forced the West Central Railway (CWR) to divert, cancel or partially terminate nearly 200 trains in the last two days.

Around 50 trains originating from different stations in North and Western India have been canceled.

Here is the list of trains canceled due to Gujjar quota agitation:

The protesters are demanding five per cent reservation to Gujjars, Raika-Rebari, Gadia Luhar, Banjara and Gadaria communities in government jobs and educational institutions. Gujjar protesters continued their sit-in on the rail tracks in Rajasthan's Sawai Madhopur district for the third day on Sunday, refusing to back off from their quota demand even after a government delegation met them there.
