‘Implement pact with Gujjars for quota’ | Jaipur News


JAIPUR: The Gujjar Aarakshan Sangarsh Samiti on Tuesday asked the Congress government to ensure that the Gujjar reservation agreement done on February 15 to be implemented.

The Samiti also appealed that the state government should only speak to the fraction of Gujjars headed by Kirori Singh Bainsla and should not divide the community to diminish the cause.

The Samiti leaders had a meeting in Jaipur where they discussed on various things including implementation of reservation agreement and declared that on April 20 they will gather at Sikandara Shaeed Sthal for a panchayat (meeting).

“The agreement that we have had with the state government on Gujjar reservation issue should be implemented. We should get our dues and if there is any betrayal then the government will have to pay for it,” Advocate Shailendra Singh, general secretary of the Samiti said.

Bainsla on being asked on his step of joining BJP, said, “I have joined the party for social and national reasons. But I am firmly standing with my community on the issue of reservation.”

The committee also said that the state government should not talk to the people who were already been expelled.

The Supreme Court had on April 5 refused to entertain a plea challenging the grant of 5% quota to Gujjars and four other castes in jobs and educational institutions in Rajasthan through a law amendment in February. The Bill passed by the newly formed Congress government in the state provides 5% quota in government jobs and educational institutes to the Gujjars and four other communities — Banjaras, Gadia Lohars, Raikas and Gadarias.
