Jaipur, July 27 (ANI): The sit-in organised by the Gujjar Reservation Action Committee to build pressure on the Rajasthan Government to get the pending ST reservation bill cleared, continued for the second day on Monday.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has renewed his invitation to Gujjar leader Kirodi Singh Bainsla to resume talks with the government.

In the Mahapanchayat, which began at Penchla mod near Hindon city in Karuali district on Sunday afternoon, Bainsla, spearheading the agitation for the past three years, asked Gujjars to stay back overnight for a "mahapadav".

Bainsla said the Congress government would have to provide five per cent reservation as envisaged in the bill passed by the previous BJP government.

The bill was sent to the governor, and is awaiting his assent. (ANI)
