Rajasthan Gujjars hold Mahapanchayat in Karauli

The All India Gujjar Reservation Action Committee today held a congregation (Mahapanchayat) at Garhmora in Karauli district, the Gujjar dominated pocket in Rajasthan. However, no decision could be taken on revival of the stir for pressing upon its six-point demand charter which includes the demand of five per cent special reservation to Gujjars and three other most backward castes(MBC).
The decision on the future course of action would be taken at another meet at the same place on December 18, Action Committee President and former Delhi MLA Ramvir Singh Bidhuri said. ''We neither want confrontation with the Government nor violence in the agitation but I want to convey to the Government that there is widespread resentment among people over delay in acceptance to their demands,'' Mr Bidhuri said.
