Gujjars call off agitation as Rajasthan agrees to quota

Jaipur: The Gujjar community on Thursday called off its agitation after the Rajasthan government agreed to provide it five percent reservation in education and government jobs, a minister said.

"The Rajasthan government will bring a new reservation bill in the next session of the assembly to be held soon. We will see that this time it does not fall to any legal hurdle," said Medical and Health Minister Rajendra Rathore.

"We will try to have this five percent reservation listed under the ninth schedule of the constitution," he said.

The agreement was reached after a four-hour-long meeting between the three-member ministerial team and Gujjar Arakshan Sangarsh Samiti leader Col. (retd) Kirori Singh Bainsla.

After the meeting, Bainsla said: "We have decided to call off our agitation. I am now going to Pilu Ka Pura, and will make a formal announcement there."

"I hope the government adheres to the agreement," he said.
