Gujjar leader Colonel (retired) Kirori Singh Bainsla, who has joined the BJP, said the Gujjar community is feeling cheated after the Congress did not make its leader Sachin Pilot as the chief minister of Rajasthan .

“Everyone is saying it that Congress cheated Gujjars by not making Sachin Pilot as chief minister, ” said Bainsla, when asked whether Gujjar community was feeling cheated with the Congress decision of not making Sachin Pilot as the CM.

“Gujjars are also feeling cheated on the issue of Sachin Pilot,” he added. “There is reaction to every action. So, Gujjar community would react by voting for BJP in the Lok Sabha polls in Rajasthan,” he further added. “Around 80% Gujjars would vote for BJP in Lok Sabha polls,” he said, adding that the community would vote for the BJP to give another term to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Kirori Singh Bainsla is known for leading several Gujjar agitations in the past over the community people’s demand for reservation in government jobs.

Pradesh Congress Committee general secretary Pankaj Mehta said Bainsla has lost credibility after joining the BJP and his allegations are baseless.

Gujjar community is overwhelmed with the amicable resolution of special backward caste reservation to Gujjars by CM Ashok Gehlot.
