Jaipur, Jun 26 (UNI) The special session of Rajasthan Assembly will be convened from July 7 for passing the bill on implementation of the state government's decisions for providing five per cent special reservation for Gujjars and 14 per cent for economically weaker sections of unreserved higher castes.
Talking to mediapersons, BJP Treasurer and Rajya Sabha MP Ramdas Agrawal, who had led the government delegation over reservation demand, said he was informed by the government that the session was being convened from July 7.
Mr Agrawal said the session, which would be the last session of the present House before Assembly elections in November, would likely to last for three days.
He said one combined bill would be introduced and passed in the House to provide reservation to the new groups.
The decision, of five per cent special reservation to Gujjars and three other castes under special most backward category, was part of the June 18 settlement which reached after 5-round talks with Gujjars who were agitating since May 23 to press for their demand of ST status.
The agitation had left at least 38 people dead.
