On Friday, Gurjar leader Colonel Kirori Singh Bainsla urged members of the community to reach Pilupura (Bayana) for the agitation on Sunday. Meanwhile, Gurjar Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti leader Vijay Bainsla said that from Sunday, the movement will start in Pilupura because the government is not accepting our demands for the past two years. Bainsla added that the community was left with no option as the state government ignored their demands.

The Gurjar panel had held a mahapanchayat in Bayana on October 17, giving the state government an ultimatum to fulfil their demands till November 1. According to reports, a high-level meeting of police was also held in Jaipur. To maintain law and order during the stir on Sunday, additional force is being sent along with higher officials in the districts.
