Jaipur: A faction of the Gujjars on Monday said
it would launch a fresh agitation against the one percent
additional quota offered to the community by the government,
saying it was not ready to settle for anything less than the 5
percent separate reservation.

All India Gujjar Aarakshan Sangarsh Samiti would hold a
`Mahapanchayat` at Sikandra town of Dausa district on May 13
to decide on the agitation, its chief patron Ramvir Singh
Bidhuri told a press conference here.

Strongly condemning the agreement arrived between the
state government and Gujjar leader Kirorisingh Bainsla on
granting one percent additional quota, he alleged that
Bainsla settled for the accord only for his "personal gains".

"Gehlot-Bainsla accord on one percent quota within 50
percent limit is unconstitutional," Bidhuri said.

"Bainsla, who got political mileage by getting Lok Sabha
ticket from BJP and important postings for his relatives now
ended the Gujjar agitation for ensuring a Rajya Sabha seat for
his daughter in the June 17 elections," Bidhuri alleged.
