Gujjar leader Kirori Singh Bainsla today held a meeting with Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and termed as “conclusive” the talks on the reservation demand of the community.
After the meeting at Mr. Gehlot’s residence which lasted over three hours, Mr. Bainsla told reporters that the meeting was “conclusive and heading in a positive direction.”
He said the government has already agreed to give five percent quota to Gujjars, but execution is still awaited. So he demanded that it should be implemented at the earliest.
However, he did not divulge further details and said he would announce anything regarding the ongoing agitation later.
Other Gujjar leaders said Mr. Bainsla was satisfied with the meeting and would discuss with community people at Madanpur near Bayana in Bharatpur later on Wednesday, after which he might call off the agitation if they agreed.
State Energy Minister Jitendra Singh, Industry Minister Rajendra Pareek and Home Minister Shanti Dhariwal were also present in the meeting.
