Jaipur, Apr 12: The Rajasthan Government has invited Gujjar leader Kirori Singh Bainsla for talks on 5 per cent quota in state jobs for his community.
A CMO spokesman said that Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has invited the Gujjar leader for talks to resolve the matter.
The message has been communicated to Bainsla through the District Collector of Karauli Neeraj K Pawan, the spokesman said.
Energy Minister Jitender Singh appealed to the Gujjars to maintain peace and harmony in the state.
On Sunday afternoon, Apr 11, hundreds of Gujjars led by Bainsla took out their march from Gudla village, 400 km from here.
Authorities made tight security arrangements with thousands of armed policemen, including RAC jawans, being deployed on either side of the highway, he said.
Bainsla had last month decided to undertake a march to Jaipur if the Gujjars' demand for reservation was not met by Mar 26.
