Govt representatives hold talks with Bainsla



Ajmer: After the last round of talks on the Gujjar reservation issue failed to hammer out a solution, two government representatives on Monday met Kirori Singh Bainsla amid a threat from him to revive the agitation demanding five per cent quota for the community in government jobs.

Ajmer Collector Rajesh Yadav and SP HP Sharma have begun talks with the Gujjar leader at Rasulpura village near Ladpura where he is holding a Mahapadav with over a thousand supporters present at the venue, official sources said.

However, the details of the talks are yet to be known.

Bainsla, who reached Ladpura this evening, called up Rajasthan's chief secretary asking him to send a representative of the chief minister to hold talks with Gujjar leaders or else they would proceed to Jaipur.

The Ajmer Collector and SP then reached Ladpura to hold negotiations with him.

The third round of talks held over the issue with Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on March 27 had remained inconclusive, following which Bainsla had threatened to continue his stir charging the state government with unwillingness to resolve the issue.
