Jaipur, May 30: A faction of Gujjars, who started a march towards Jaipur from Shahpura on Jaipur-Delhi highway earlier this week demanding five per cent reservation, today camped at Lakheri village near Manoharpura area. 




The Gujjars, led by former MLA Atar Singh Bhadana, waited for the government's response and decided to camp in the village.

“I was told that a senior official will come to us for a meeting, but none came today.

Our march is peaceful and we plan to reach Jaipur by May 31 to begin a Mahapadav, but we will review the situation tomorrow in order to decide our future course of action,” Bhadana said.

The community is getting one out of the four per cent reservation and a complete five per cent reservation is the main demand of Gujjars which has been stayed by the High Court as it was exceeding the 50 per cent legal cap.

Gujjars have in the past launched several agitations under the leadership of Kirori Bainsla, but he is not part of this protest.
