Rajasthani government waving to Gujjars for quota

The government of Rajasthan said on Monday its doors were open for discussions with members of the restless Gujjar community over their booking requests.

The government said the solution to the problem can only be found through dialogue.

Minister of State for Health Raghu Sharma and President C P Joshi both called on the agitators to come and talk with the government and find a solution to the problem.

Earlier, Sharma briefed the House on government initiatives to date on the matter.

He said that a delegation of Gurjar Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti made up of 80 villages and civil and public representatives had discussions with the Cabinet sub-committee in Jaipur on October 31, during which 14 points were agreed.

Mr Sharma said that even after that, if Sangharsh Samiti’s organizer Col. Kirori Singh Bainsla and his supporters feel that some issues have been left out of the discussion, they should come and talk to the government.

Mr Sharma said the doors of government are always open for dialogue and the solution to this problem cannot be achieved by sitting on the train tracks or blocking the roads.

This can only be achieved through dialogue, he said, while calling on agitators to keep the peace and ensure law and order in the state.

After that, Assembly Speaker C P Joshi also called on the agitators on behalf of the House to negotiate with the government and find a solution.

Gujjar Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti launched a movement in Bayana on Sunday with their demands.

Many young people are sitting on the tracks of the Delhi-Mumbai railway line. Many roads were also blocked.
