Jaipur, Sep 11 (UNI) Fresh rounds of talks between the Gujjar Reservation Action Committee Convenor Col Kirodi Singh Bainsla and the representatives of the state government were held here today.
''The dialogue was held in a very conducive atmosphere and the Gujjar leaders were showing a positive approach for reaching a peaceful and acceptable solution for achieving their goal,'' BJP Treasurer and sitting MP Ramdas Agrawal told UNI tonight.
Mr Agrawal and BJP General Secretary Om Prakash Mathur represented the state government in the rounds of dialogue held since yesterday.
Mr Agrawal said Col Bainsla had assured during the talks that he would reply tomorrow to the government letter sent to him seeking his views on the extension of the term of the Chopra Committee constituted by the government to examine the Gujjar community's demand of ST status. The term of the three-member committee is due to expire tomorrow.
The Gujjar leader had also assured that the Gujjar Mahapanchayat, scheduled to be held in Dholpur on September 13, would be held in an absolutely peaceful manner, Mr Agrawal said.
