Claiming "forward movement" in their parleys, the Gujjar leadership and the Rajasthan government on Tuesday held further talks to end the 26-day-old agitation for ST status.
Kirori Singh Bainsla led a core group from his outfit, Gurjar Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti, while the state government's nine-member team was headed by BJP MP and party treasurer Ramdas Agarwal.
Earlier in the day, Chief Minister Vasudhara Raje chaired a meeting to discuss the outcome of the parleys between the two sides over the past four days. It was attended by BJP leaders including Gopinath Munde.
Both Bainsla and the government side had claimed "forward movement" after the talks on Monday.
