Bainsla has announced a sit-in on Tuesday to press for their demand of five-per-cent reservation within the Other Backward Class (OBC) quota. A faction of the community, opposed to Bainsla, is also planning to hold a separate meeting in district on the same day.

collector Sandesh Nayak said the message for talks with a group of ministers in has been communicated to Bainsla.

Mobile were discontinued last night for 24 hours to prevent rumours. The decision will be reviewed later today, he told

A of the Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti, Himmat Singh, said they have called a meeting at 10am tomorrow morning to decide whether to accept or decline the government's invitation for the talks.

Meanwhile, a faction of the community has opposed Bainsla, alleging that he keeps the community people misguided all the time and it has become a "habit" for him to announce the revival of the agitation every summer.

"Bainsla has called for mahapadav (agitation) at Adda village on May 15. Members of the community in several villages are unhappy with Bainsla, who has just mislead us. Therefore, a decision has been taken that we will also call a meeting on the same day in Bharatpur, which will be addressed by our leader Ramvir Singh Bidhuri," Vijay Ram, a local leader, said.
