Bainsla to hold talks with Raje Govt
Gujjar leader Col Kirori Singh Bainsla on Monday reached Jaipur to hold a final round of dialogue with Rajasthan government.
He will participate in the talks with government delegation which is headed by BJP MP, Ram Das Agarwal at Official Training School(OTS) before holding final round with Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.
Bainsla was accompanied by his close confident Har Parsad Tanwar and divisional commissioner Bharatpur Niranjan Arya.
Prior to leaving for Jaipur, Col Bainsla told HT on phone from Piloopura that he was going with an open mind and expected a positive stance from the state government to resolve the ongoing 24-day-old Gujjar agitation demanding ST status.
"I will seek the opinion of my 28 member delegation before holding final round of negotiations with the state government. Two members of the delegation had come to me at Piloopura on Sunday and briefed me about the outcome of the two rounds of talks held with the government," he said.
Fourth round of talks did not take place on Sunday as four members including two members of the Gujjars community namely Delhi NCP MLA, Rambir Singh Biduri and Sardar Singh Dhankar had gone to Bayana to apprise Col Bainsla of the outcome of the talks held between two sides for two days.
Two rounds of dialogue between Gujjar delegation and the government were held at Jaipur on Friday and Saturday which did not yield any tangible result.
A preliminary dialogue was held at Bayana on June 9, which gave an opportunity to Gujjar leaders to put forth their grievances, including the payment of Rs ten lakh each to the families of those who were killed during May 2007 and current movement.
The kith of the deceased should get employment and Rs 3-5 lakh must be paid to the injured. The agitators arrested by the police should be released and supply of electricity and water should be restored with immediate effect.
The government are keeping villagers without water and power since past three weeks.
