Jaipur: With talks on reservation issue
remaining inconclusive, Gujjar leader Kirori Singh Bainsla
today alleged that the government had no intention to meet the
demand and threatened to take out a march to the capital to
press for quota in government jobs for the community.

He said the third round of talks held last night with
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot was not fruitful as the
government did not want to resolve the issue.

"I tried my best to solve the issue last night and
suggested the CM the ways to accord reservation to the caste.
But actually the government is not ready for that, so we are
left with no option but to do it (March)," Bainsla said
over phone from Gazipur, Dausa.

"We are open for talks, but the government has no
intention to meet our demand, so what can we do?"

There were three rounds of talks between Gujjar leaders
and the government in the last two days over the five per cent
reservation issue.

The Rajasthan High Court had in October last year stayed
a reservation bill, which proposed quota in jobs and
educational institution in the state for Gujjars and
economically backward classes.
