Bainsla demands 5% quota for Gujjars
Jaipur: Demanding five per cent quota in
government jobs for members of his community, Gujjar leader
Kirori Singh Bainsla along with his supporters on Sunday began a
sit-in in Dausa district.
Bainsla, who took the step after a Mahapanchayat in
Bhandarej town, threatened a mass march to Jaipur if their
demands were not met.
"We have been cheated by the government every time. We
want a clear answer -- yes or no -- to our main demand," he
told PTI by telephone.
"The government promised us in January this year a
quantifiable data collection exercise to justify quota for us
as directed by the High Court.
"But the process has not been completed so far,"
"Reservation is our main demand and there are a few
other issues also. We want the government to come and give us
a final answer," he said.
Over 5,000 people participated in the meeting and
hundreds were staging the sit-in with Bainsla.
