The Meenas, who claim to be the only Scheduled Tribe community in Rajasthan, on Tuesday threatened to launch an agitation if Gurjars were included in their league.

"Meena community is ready for a larger sacrifice than the Gurjars if the government resorted to any such thing," a student leader of the community told reporters in Jaipur.

"Meenas in Rajasthan are the only Schedule Tribes and we would not tolerate any inclusion into our community, President of Raastriya Meena Mahasabha, Bhanwar Lal Meena said.

If the Vasundhara Raje-led BJP government in the state dares to include Gurjars into ST community, Raje would not be able to come to power in the state, Meena threatened.

On allegations that the police officers of Meena Community were responsible for firing in Dausa and Bundi district, he said, "it is baseless and rubbish".
