The BJP MP from Bharatpur Vishwendra Singh on Friday said the party's central leadership wants him talk to Gujjar leaders in a bid to end their agitation but Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and state party President Om Prakash Mathur are still "confused and indecisive".
"On May 24, BJP President Rajnath Singh asked me to go to Jaipur and sort out the Gujjar imbroglio but so far there is no authorisation or authority to deal with the matter", Vishwendra Singh, a prominent Jat leader and former Maharaja of Bharatpur, told PTI in Jaipur.
"On May 28, the chief minister made a call to me when I along with my wife were in Delhi. I immeditately rushed to Jaipur in the evening," Singh said.
"Yesterday I told the chief minister that I be authorised to resolve the stalemate. I waited whole day," he said adding "unless I am authorised to make some headway in talks no one would take it seriously".
