Gurjars, 4 other communities to get 1% reservation in NBC category

Thousands of unemployed youths can look forward to getting a government job now. Thanks to a timely and wise decision by Vasundhara Raje government of granting one per cent separate reservation to Gurjars and four other communities in Most Backward Class (MBC) category. Gurjar community may be skeptical about the move but it has paved way to fill up 72,000 posts in the government; the recruitment process for which was stuck because of reservation tangle.For last two years, 72,000 posts in 13 different categories and departments could not be filled because of OBC reservation act. Among them 55,000 posts were those for which notification had been issued. In fact, the government had to extend application deadline five times for level 2 of REET teachers’ recruitment 2016, whereas second grade teachers’ recruitment result was not declared for six months.The recruitment process was stalled only because of reservation issue but now everything is clear as Raje government has made a provision by which Gurjars and four other communities will enjoy one per cent separate reservation in MBC and continue to receive OBC reservation benefits as well.Though, the Gurjar community is still not convinced and threatening to launch stir once again.Notably, the SBC reservation got stuck in the court. The state government had to cancel it. After that, Raje government brought OBC bill to give 5 per cent reservation to Gurjars but before a notification could be issued the matter reached court.Since the overall reservation limit went up to 54%, Supreme Court quashed the bill reiterating its stand that reservation cannot go beyond the cap of 50%. The government discussed the matter with Gurjars and tried to convince them to agree to accept MBC but they refused.However, the government released notification of MBC. Now, the unemployed are eagerly waiting for opening up of the recruitment process.Social justice and empowerment minister, Arun Chaturvedi hailed the decision claiming that MBC will restart stalled recruitment process at speedy level.State president of Berojgar Ekikrat Mahasangh, Upen Yadav, however, demanded that the government should not lose time to restart recruitment process at the same time appointments in old recruitments should be given immediately to fulfill its promise.But, Gurjar leader, Himmat Singh alleged cheating. “The government has duped us. The one percent reservation was available even during the Gehlot government. Instead of keeping youths unemployed, the government could have given this benefit earlier. Our agitation is for 5 per cent reservation will continue. We will oppose the government in upcoming by polls and in assembly elections,” he said.

Vasundhara Raje govt approves 1% reservation for Gurjars, 4 other communities in Rajasthan

Five castes including Gurjars will get one per cent reservation within the 50 per cent legal limit in Rajasthan, a senior minister said here today.The state government took the decision on Thursday to provide reservation to the Gujjar/Gurjar, Banjara/Baldia/ Labana, Gadia-Lohar/Gadalia, Raika/Rebari and Gadaria communities.”The decision was taken to give one per cent reservation to Gurjars and other castes under the most backward category,” said state Parliamentary Affairs Minister Rajendra Rathore.A notification will be issued after the governor’s approval, he said.The present overall reservation percentage in the state stands at 49 per cent.The five castes were included in the Other Backward Classes (OBC) list in 1994. After the state cabinet’s decision they can now seek benefits in educational institutions and job opportunities.The Rajasthan Assembly in October this year passed a bill to raise OBC reservation from 21 to 26 per cent to provide five per cent quota to Gurjars and other castes.However, the high court stayed the bill as it would have increased the reservation to 54 per cent.Later, the Supreme Court also directed the state government not to exceed the 50 per cent reservation limit.The government has taken the step in the wake of widespread agitation by the Gurjar community, demanding reservation under the backward class category.

State Gurjar leaders in Gujarat to support Hardik Patel

The Gurjar leaders of Rajasthan, who are engaged in a long standing battle with the state government for reservation are busy camping in Gujarat. They plan to garner support by extending support. There are leaders from Madhya Pradesh too who are slugging it out for Hardik Patel.This is not the first time close affiliation has been seen between the Gurjars and the Patidar leader. Hardik had active support from Gurjars of Rajasthan during the Patidar reservation agitation in 2015. Based on their experience on home grounds, they were instrumental in ensuring disruption of railway tracks.Even when Hardik had been camping in Udaipur, the Gurjars had been constantly providing him protection and escort.Several Gurjar leaders including Himmat Singh Gurjar of the Gurjar Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti are camping in Gujarat and extending support to Hardik. Himmat Singh is member of Hardik’s core committee and was also part of the deliberation between Hardik and Congress. He played an active role in keeping up the momentum of the Patidar movement while Hardik was in jail.Others from Rajasthan who are actively involved are Ajit Singh Gurjar another sangharsh samiti member from Bhilwara, Gehrilal Dangi from Udaipur, Shwetank Patidar and Natwar Patidar from Jhalawar.Mahendra Patidar, the Patidar samaj prant adhyaksh from MP, and Ashish Patidar a youth leader from MP, are also campaigning with Hardik Patel.Speaking to DNA, Himmat Singh said: “We sympathise with him as our causes are identical. But we have a longer experience of dealing with governments and carrying out our agitation.” He added: “We are not just supporting him, we have continuously shared our experiences and pitfalls. This has also given the Patidars better understanding to deal with the government and political parties.” Singh said that they stand with Hardik and agree with his stand to be against the BJP.Favours are meant to be returned. The assembly elections are around the corner and the Gurjar leaders from Rajasthan hope to get Hardik here to campaign for their cause.

Alwar victim was involved in bovine smuggling, says SP

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Alwar lynching case has taken a new twist with the cops saying that Umar Khan had a tiff with the Alwar police in the past and that he was involved in a bovine smuggling case. About five years ago, a smuggling case was registered against him and Umar was “wanted” by the cops.“Umar was wanted in a case way back in 2012 related to bovine smuggling. He was even declared “absconder” and a challan was issued against him by the court”, Rahul Prakash, Superintendent of Police told DNA.However, Umar never presented himself before the court. The cops are now trying to piece together the old case. “We are trying to gather all fodder and information about the case and are also getting the related documents from the court,” the SP informed. Meanwhile, Umar’s family has disallowed the autopsy of the body. “They have demanded a compensation of Rs 25 lakh without which they will not give a nod for the post-mortem.Two persons were arrested for the killing of Umar. “Bhagwan Singh Gurjar alias Kala and Ramveer Gurjar, residents of Markapur area, were arrested for killing Umar. They were arrested late last night,” SP Alwar Rahul Prakash said.Home Minister Gulabchand Katariya blamed the media on Tuesday for creating a hype in the alleged lynching. “The media is playing it up because it is Hindu versus Muslim. If it was a Hindu versus Hindu case, may be the media would not have hyped it. The police are scrutinizing records of all cow smugglers,” said Kataria.Umar’s body was found near the railway tracks in Ramgarh on November 11, with his family members and activists alleging that he was shot dead by cow vigilantes when ferrying cattle in a vehicle the day before.The incident, which came months after the lynching of dairy farmer Pehlu Khan by suspected cow vigilantes in Alwar, triggered an outrage.IN ALWAR, SO FAROpposition, activists hit out at Rajasthan governmentTwo detained; kin withhold consent to autopsyCPI(M) asks Centre, Rajasthan government to ‘abide by Supreme Court direction’Strict action to be taken against culprit, even if Hindu: Rajasthan Home Minister on Alwar lynching

They were arrested late yesterday night,” SP Alwar Rahul Prakash said. The two were being interrogated and a hunt is on for the other accused, he said.Asked whether the accused were robbers or cow vigilantes, Prakash said that there was “no term like cow vigilante” in police vocabulary. It is a murder case and we are working to arrest the accused involved in the case, he said. Umar Khan’s body was found near railway tracks in Ramgarh on November 11, with his family members and activists alleging that he was shot dead by cow vigilantes when ferrying cattle in a vehicle the day before.The incident, which came months after the lynching of dairy farmer Pehlu Khan by suspected cow vigilantes in Alwar, triggered an outrage. The Alwar SP said that two cases were lodged in connection with the Umar Khan case. The first was lodged after the pick-up van with cattle was traced at Govindgarh. “It was a clear case of cow smuggling and we lodged a case for the same,” he said.The second is a case of murder after Umar Khan’s relatives lodged an FIR, he said.Govindgarh police station officials said that a case was registered against Umar Khan, Tahir Khan and Javed on charges of cow smuggling. Meanwhile, the post-mortem of Umar Khan’s body could not be performed even today. SMS Hospital superintendent, Dr D S Meena, said that the post-mortem could not be performed by the medical board as Umar Khan’s family members did not turn up despite several attempts.The deceased’s family members are camping in Jaipur after the body was referred to SMS Hospital here from Alwar. “No one should die the way my nephew did. We have met senior police officials and will be meeting officials of the chief minister’s office today to take up the case,” Razzak Khan, uncle of Umar Khan said. He said that Umar Khan’s parents are elderly and could not come to Jaipur.The state government should compensate them with Rs 50 lakh and Rs 25 lakh to the kin of Tahir Khan who sustained bullet injury on November 10 incident, Razzak Khan said.He said that Tahir Khan had informed that on their way back home they were attacked by six to eight people. The assailants opened fire in which Umar Khan was shot dead and Tahir Khan sustained injuries, he added.

Will Gopalpura Bypass meet D-deadline?

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The eviction of encroachments from Gopalpura Bypass on Saturday has brought Jaipur Development Authority’s (JDA) drive near to completion. The task to broaden the road to 160 feet width before Diwali though poses a challenge for the authority as debris of the demolished structures still lying along the roadsides.“We have cleared all encroachments from the road width at Zone 4 and at Zone 5 few structures remain that on the side lane due to standing stay orders,” said Rahul Jain, SP enforcement at JDA.The drive commenced from September 20 and was initially scheduled to be completed within a week. However, as the drive advanced the time limit also got extended. As of now debris of the demolished buildings piling on either side of the road continues to remain a challenge in leveling and road laying on the vacated width of the bypass.“Road laying work has commenced at the bypass near Tonk Road and it will gradually proceed towards Gurjar ki Thadi over next few days,” said a JDA official. “It is though uncertain if the task could be accomplished before Diwali,” he added.During initial days of the drive the bypass was closed for general public and traffic was diverted to other routes.These illegal encroachments had popped up upon the road width over past couple of decades much due to negligence of the responsible authorities. Despite increase in traffic these encroachments have continued to grow creating bottlenecks at several places.It was only after a recent high court order that the authority decided to vacate the area.However while doing so, the JDA officials also courted controversy. While there were few instances of conflict between the authorities and illegal occupants, at few places those who held legal land deeds were removed forcibly by the authority.

Police staged encounter to kill our son: Manveer Singh Gurjar

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A high voltage drama was witnessed on the roads of Noida following the encounter of 27-year-old wanted criminal Sumit Gurjar who was shot dead in an encounter in Greater Noida later Tuesday night.Family members of the criminal Sumit Gurjar, staged a protest on Mahamaya Flyover on Wednesday, alleging the Gautam Buddha Nagar cops carried out a fake encounter.Mahamaya flyover is an important surface link that connects Noida with parts of South Delhi. So the protest led to chock-a-block traffic with vehicles all the way up to Noida and Greater Noida Expressway.The family has arrived in city around 10pm from their native place Baghpat to have the last glimpse of Gurjar, whose body had been kept at mortuary in Sector 94 but refused to take it.Later, they then moved to the Mahamaya Flyover and blocked the traffic movement of vehicles from Noida to Delhi. In the backdrop of the traffic jam, police teams from Sector 39, Sector 20 and Expressway police stations swung into action along with traffic personnel to divert the traffic.While protesting, Manveer Singh Gurjar, Sumeet’s uncle, alleged the encounter by police was staged.”Sumit was in the market when a police team picked him up from there. Someone told us about it and we went to the local police station and feigned ignorance about it. We had no clue about where he had gone and why police took him into custody,” he said.He said that later following day they were informed that the Noida police has taken him into custody.”We had approached the Noida police and informed the senior police officers about the illegal detention of Sumit Gurjar.

RIICO, JDA, JMC and Pollution Board under scanner

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>RIICO, JDA, JMC and State Pollution Control Board are to an extent responsible for the death of 22-year-old Ayush who was washed away with his car in the Kartarpura nullah on August 25. Had these four agencies performed their duties then Ayush would not have died, nor would it have taken so many days to locate his body. After a probe initiated into the incident by the district administration, it has written to the four concerned departments and asked them to take action and apprise about it.It had taken seven days of intensified search at Kartarpura nullah after which Ayush’s body was found near Gurjar Ki Thadi, which is quite far off from the spot where the incident took place. The SDRF, civil defence force and district administration had to face a lot of difficulty during the rescue operation. Their boats had got stuck in the garbage and muck in the nullah during the search operation. Large scale resources had been deployed to clear the nullah.These were the barriers in the rescue operation:As per the report by the district administration, dirty water, chemicals, plastic waste and sewer water from the industrial units of Sudarshanpura and adjoining areas were the cause of the muck in the nullah, which was the biggest hindrance in the rescue operation.Gross carelessness in the cleaning of the nullah combined with large scale encroachments were also major hindrances. There was no adequate space or road to enter the nullah at different points.Why are the departments at faultJaipur Development Authority (JDA): There has been gross carelessness in the cleaning of nullahs over the last two three years. Had they been clean there would not have been muck. Who are the officials and workers responsible for this and what action has been taken against them? This information is sought. There is no wall, chain or pillars along the side of the nullah for security. This needs to be addressed on a priority. There is encroachment on both sides of the drift area of the nullah and there is no proper road or path to go towards it. Who are the officers responsible for this encroachment and what action has been initiated against them. It is also asked as to what action will be taken in future. RIICO: Why was dirty water, chemicals, plastic waste and sewer water from the industrial units allowed to flow into the nullah? Why no action was taken?Why were pillars, walls and chains not put up along the edge of the nullah? What action will be taken in future so that such an incident does not take place again.It is also instructed to take action against the factories in this matter. State Pollution Control Board : Dirty water, chemicals, plastic waste and sewer water is being poured into the nullahs of the city, why has the department not taken any action? Action to be taken against industrial units so that such incidents do not take place in future. Also the industrial units be prevented from flouting rules and dumping waste into the nullahs. Jaipur Municipal Corporation: Crores are spent on the cleaning of nullahs before monsoon, but neither are they cleaned nor are open sewer and manholes covered. An investigation should be initiated into this as to find out if the money was properly utilised.Nullahs should be properly cleaned and strict action should be taken against people dumping waste into them.Municipal corporation should make adequate security arrangements for the nullahs falling under its area.

One by one, NGT denying nod to DDA landfill sites

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) was left in a lurch after the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Monday rejected the Ghonda-Gurjar site allotted to it by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) for using it as a landfill. The site located on the Yamuna flood plains cannot be used for dumping the city’s waste, as it can further pollute the river.The East Corporation officials had a meeting with the principal committee of the court seeking an NOC over the allotted site.”The NOC was rejected on the site by the NGT for being on Yamuna river bed. They said waste cannot be dumped here, as it would contaminate the water. For the time being we are dumping waste at a site close to Ghazipur only,” EDMC mayor Neema Bhagat told DNA.The Corporation seems to have run out of options to dump its 2,200 to 3,000 metric tonnes (MT) waste every day, as even the Ranikhera site on Delhi-Haryana border allocated for the purpose by the AAP government has run into trouble with residents protesting the move.The DDA had allotted 150 acres of land in Ghonda-Gurjar to the civic body earlier this month pending the environment clearance.Even as the DDA claims to have provided land for the purpose, according to senior officials, most sites allotted by the DDA since 2002 to the civic bodies have not been materialised, as these do not conform to the norms of developing a landfill and have run into objections.Moreover, senior officials on the condition of anonymity said, the DDA has not moved these files since.”The DDA in 2015 had allotted a site to the East Corporation in Rohini sector 40. It ran into objections by all the agencies concerned including the DMRC and the DSIIDC for the land being disputed and being in violation of norms. The matter standstill while no other site was provided in its place,” said Rahul Gupta, a lawyer who was part of the committee in the case.

Gurjar quota settlement fuels Jat agitation, ‘Princely’ Jats threaten violent stir

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Even before the government could heave a sigh of relief after settling Gurjar quota demand, Jats of Bharatpur and Dholpur have threatened to stage a violent agitation on August 23, 2017, demanding their inclusion in the OBC quota. Jats, barring natives these two districts, are enjoying the benefits of OBC reservation in the state. Incidentally, Rajasthan is the only state in the country which has included Jats in OBC category. However, Jats of Bharatpur and Dholpur were denied the quota benefits when the then prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee government notified Jats of Rajasthan in OBC category in 1999. The Jat community in these two districts belongs to ruling class of pre-independence era and hence not considered socially or economically backward.Chief minister Vasundhara Raje is the daughter-in-law of Dholpur princely state which is an erstwhile Jat kingdom. Raje has shown high-class political talent and diplomacy in resolving Gurjar agitation issue a couple of days ago and accommodated them in OBC category upping the ceiling of quota from 21% to 26%. The spearhead of Jat agitation Vishvendra Singh, a member of the erstwhile royal family of Bharatpur, has blown hot and cold on this issue. He is among the few politicians who have been able to represent both Congress and BJP in assembly. With friends in the ruling party, BJP stands a bright chance in negotiating with Vishvendra Singh.“After Gurjar, now the issue of Jat agitation is also to be dealt with deftly. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is visiting Udaipur on August 29. She will have to show her negotiation skills to save the government from embarrassment before the PM. She has done it in past also when she was able to contain Jat agitation in June this year. Being a bahu from the same community, Raje has an upper hand in dealing with such situation,” said a political observer.The settlement of Gurjar quota has added fuel to Jat reservation fire. Jats want a similarly written assurance from the government. But in the case of Jat reservation, the government can do very little.The matter of inclusion of Jats from Dholpur and Bharatpur has been taken up with High Court and Supreme Court. The central government had tried for the inclusion of Bharatpur and Dholpur Jats in OBC following demands from the community. But the apex court on March 17, 2015, quashed a Government of India’s notification dated March 4, 2014, and struck down the Jats of Bharatpur and Dholpur from the Centre’s OBC list. In such situation, what exactly and how much can be done by a “helpless” state Government, which is bound to go by the mandate of the Court.The Rajasthan high court also barred the Jat community in Dholpur and Bharatpur districts from being treated as Other Backward Classes (OBCs), saying that the community could continue to enjoy the benefits of the status across the rest of the state.To be dealt with deftlyJats of Bharatpur and Dholpur have threatened to stage a violent agitation on August 23, 2017, demanding their inclusion in the OBC quota.Rajasthan is the only state in the country which has included Jats in OBC category.Jats of Bharatpur and Dholpur were denied the quota benefits as they belonged to ruling class of pre-independence era.CM Raje is the daughter-in-law of Dholpur princely state. Spearheading the stir is Vishvendra Singh of erstwhile Bharatpur royal family.

Gurjars say mahapanchayat to be held on August 18

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>On the eve of their talks with the Rajasthan government scheduled for Thursday, the Gurjar community has declared a mahapanchayat to be held on August 18. They have also announced that if talks are not successful, they will organise an an agitation once again. The government, however, hopes that the talks would go in a positive direction.Himmat SIngh Gurjar spokesperson of Gurjar Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti, while informing that the mahapanchayat has been called in Gazipur, Dausa, on August 18, and, would address the situation of the demand of reservation.Gurjar said that several rounds of meetings have been held, but not yeilding any result. “We want reservation under OBC, that too within 50 per cent. We also want a re-classification of the OBC reservation to give us 5 per cent quota,” he said. The state has a quota of 21 per cent for OBC, the Gurjars are demanding the quota be increased to 26 and they get 5 per cent of this. At the same time, they do not want the complete reservation to go beyond 50 per cent, as this has been the reason for the court striking it down. The gurjars have been given reservation under SBC (Special Backward Class), but they want to be classified as OBC. This has made the issue tricky for the government. And seeing the elections scheduled next year, the government is in no mood to face another agitation by the Gurjars.

MP: Suspected mining mafia opens fire on Forest personnel; one

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A 40-year-old man, suspected to be involved in illegal stone mining, was injured during an exchange of fire between Forest personnel and unidentified people at Pahori village near here today, a police officer said.

We do not have professional physiotherapists.”During the felicitation ceremony, Gurjar leader Kirodi Singh Bainsla said that if the government provides stadiums, many more medal winners will be produced.“Give me stadiums and we will give medals,” Bainsla said in the function in which Hemsingh Bhadana, minister of general administration department (GAD) was also present.On the occasion, Khimsar also announced to give Rs 5 lakhs to Gurjar and the rising star award.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Despite several AIIMS departments facing shortage of nursing staff, around 100 nurses are instead working in the computer facility of the hospital, the resident doctors’ association (RDA) claimed today. In a letter to the AIIMS Director, the RDA termed it as “gross misuse” of resources stating these nursing officers who draw a salary of around Rs 70,000 are doing a job for which one gets paid Rs 12,000-15,000. “It is quite strange that nursing officers who are not even specialised for computer operations have been deployed in the computer facility just to work as coordinators between users and engineers, a work which could have been done by data entry operators or computer operators,” AIIMS RDA president Dr Vijay Gurjar said in the letter. The RDA further sought a review of this decision citing paucity of nursing officers in various departments including in the emergency. Ironically, the controversy comes on the occasion of International Nurses Day today which marks the contributions nurses make to society. Dr Deepak Agrawal, Chairman of Computerisation at AIIMS, said only 80 nurses out of 6,000 have been trained to act as an interface between health care workers and the IT team. “They have been primarily responsible for the success of the computerisation at AIIMS. This has been acknowledged by the ministry of health which has been pushing hospitals to create a similar cadre in their respective hospitals,” he said. He further said that these nurses who work as nursing informatics specialists provide training to the doctors and nurses on the various modules on computerisation in various departments and supervise to ensure successful implementation of the same. “They do not work as data entry operators nor do they enter any data into the systems themselves,” Dr Agrawal added.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
