The convener of Gurjar Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti, Colonel (retired) Kirori Singh Bainsla, the man who spearheaded Gurjar agitation in Rajasthan, has been discharged from Sawai Man Singh (SMS) Hospital after he tested negative for the coronavirus on Sunday.

Bainsla had tested positive for the coronavirus and was admitted to hospital a day after he met Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot, and a decision was taken on bringing an end to the Gurjar agitation in the state on November 11, 2020.

The 85-year-old, who was diagnosed with lung infection, had been admitted to the SMS Hospital in Jaipur on November 12. The condition of Bainsla, who is currently in Jaipur, is believed to be better now.

Bainsla also attended a meeting with the ministerial sub-committee of the Rajasthan government, which lasted more than five hours after which a decision to end the Gurjar agitation was taken. Representing the Rajasthan government in the meeting were power minister BD Kalla, state minister of health Dr Subhash Garg, and labour minister Tikaram Juli.

During the discussions held between the Rajasthan government and representatives of the Gurjar Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti in Jaipur, an agreement was reached on six points, including the following:

  • The government decided that Rs 5 lakh each be given to family members of three members of Gurjar community who got injured and later died during Gurjar agitation, and jobs will be given to one family member of each of those persons. Appointment letters would be given as per that.
  • Orders issued by the Personnel Department for providing benefits to 1,252 candidates of the MBC category equivalent to regularised salary structure.
  • Gurjar Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti was made aware of the process for holding null and void cases registered till November 11, 2020, against agitating Gurjars. Meetings will be held for monitoring that remaining cases are taken back in an orderly manner. It was also decided that no new cases shall be filed with malicious intent.
  • The agitating Gurjars must end blocking of rail and road routes in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur, which continued for 11 days, affecting thousands of passengers.
