Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Friday described "unfortunate" violent demonstrations in Dungarpur district over the teachers' examination and appealed to the protesters to cooperate in maintaining law and order.
On Thursday evening, candidates for a teacher recruitment examination laid siege on a highway in Rajasthan, throwing stones and arson with Scheduled Tribe category candidates for their demand to fill vacant posts in the unreserved category.
Gehlot tweeted, "Violence and violent demonstrations in Dungarpur is very unfortunate. The constitutional right to protest must be exercised. There should be a peaceful protest but no one has the right to take the law in hand. My appeal to the protesters is to please cooperate in maintaining peace and law and order. "
