Jaipur: Gujjar leader Kirori Singh Bainsla,
who spearheaded a stir for quota in 2008, today asked the
Rajasthan Government to withdraw its decision to resume
recruitment process for government jobs as per old reservation
pattern and threatened to revive the agitation.

Following a stay on 14 per cent reservation for
economically backward class by the High Court, the government
had yesterday decided to continue with the old system in

Bainsla threatened the government with consequences if
the decision was not revoked and said the administration would
be responsible if the recruitment process is not cancelled.

"The state government is cheating us and the decision
should be withheld till any decision on the reservation matter
is taken. There is resentment among people of economically
backward class due to government`s decision and we would
protest it," he told reporters here.

"The government has not submitted its reply to the High
Court, but we do not want to go into legal matter. We want our
right, anyhow," said Bainsla.

"The government did not get the reservation bill included
in the ninth scheduled (of the Constitution) hence the
community is suffering," he alleged.
