JAIPUR - An agreement has been reached during talks between the agitating Gujjar community and the Rajasthan government over the community’s demand for five percent reservation in government jobs, Gujjar sources said Wednesday.
A 36-member Gujjar team was in talks here with the state government even as the community continued to block rail tracks for the 17th day demanding job quotas.
The delegation, led by retired army colonel K.S. Bainsla, started negotiations with a three-member ministerial committee in a bid to end a dragging row.
