Jaipur, Jun 17 (UNI) A settlement to the 26-day-old Gujjar stir for ST status is likely to be achieved at the final round of Gujjar- Government talks scheduled to held between Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and Gujjar leader Col (retd) Kirodi Singh Bainsla later in the day.

After a four-hour-long dicussion last evening, the Gujjar leaders and the state government moved a step further to finding an amicable solution.
Briefing reporters on the hours-long deliberations, Col Bainsla and the Government delegation leader and Rajya Sabha member Ramdas Agrawal expressed full satisfaction over the progress in the talks and held that a conclusion would be reached after the final round of dialogue tomorrow.
The two delegates said both the sides advanced further, nearer to a solution.
Gujjar leader Col Bainsla also struck a positive note, saying, ''I am fully satisfied with the talks so far and am confident that Tuesday will be the last and final round of talks.'' UNI SS SB HT1138
