Jaipur: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok
Gehlot on Monday warned against creating "caste war" in the state
over reservation in promotion in government services.

"No class - be it SC, ST, OBC or general - has the right
to create caste war. The government will take stern action
against such forces...We will not tolerate any effort to
create caste-war," he told reporters here.

A faction of the state government employees is fighting
against SC/ST reservation in service promotions.

On Gujjar community threat to revive its reservation
agitation, Gehlot said, "We respect Colonel Kirori Bainsla and
in democracy everybody has the right to protest. Their main
demands are sub-judice and the rest have been fulfilled."

"All communities in special backward classes in the state
are happy and satisfied," he claimed.
