Gujjars hold sit-in over quota issue at district headquarters``

News posted by

Jaipur, June 16 (PTI) Demanding five per cent reservation to the community in government jobs, a faction of Rajasthan Gujjar Arakshan Samiti today held a ''dharna'' at all 33 district headquarters and submitted a charter of demands to the collectors. In Jaipur, leading a day long dharna outside the collectorate, Ramvir Singh Bidhuri, patron RGAS, told reporters that the agreement arrived between the Ashok Gehlot government and retired colonel Kirorisingh Bainsla on one per cent quota to four communities including Gujjars was "fictitious and misleading". "Bainsla not only took personal gains but also ditched the community by doing such agreements without taking the community leaders into confidence", Bidhuri charged. In its charter of demands, RGAS said all cases registered against Gujjar leaders in the past should be withdrawn, those in jail should be released and provide adequate cash compensation to the victims and kin (of the Gujjar agitation in past three years) as promised by the Congress government, Bidhuri said. Meanwhile, police said the dharna in all districts was held in a peaceful manner.
