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 recruitment.

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.
