The first official talks between Gujjars, agitating for 5% reservation in government jobs, and Rajasthan government officials on Thursday ended inconclusively and the protesters dug in their heels to assert that the 11-day old stir was not weakening.

An 11-member delegation nominated by Gujjar leader Col (retd) Kirori Singh Bainsla returned after talks with the government’s emissaries in Bayana to Peelupura, and briefed the community members. Addressing his supporters, Bainsla said, “We hope for a concrete result in 2011.”

Roop Singh, a close aide of Bainsla, said the date and venue for further talks would be decided after consulting other leaders.

The official talks broke the impasse after the first unofficial efforts were initiated five days back.
