After a day-long series of meetings with the government, the Gurjar leaders have given 15-day time period for ‘reserving’ post in the vacancies issued by the government between 2016 and 2017.
The issue was discussed at length between the chief secretary DB Gupta and Gurjar leaders led by Col Kirori Singh Bainsla.
Expressing satisfaction over the deliberations, Himmat Singh Gurjar of the Gurjar Aarkashan Sangarsh Samiti said that the government had sought 15-day time period and added that the shadow posts will be created. “We are satisfied and hope this gets done in 15 days,” said Himmat Singh. A note regarding this has been prepared by department of social justice. Now, this note will be sent to the cabinet sub-committee for its approval.
From there this note will be sent to the department of personnel after which a circular will be issued by the cabinet. This circular will be based on creating shadow posts on the various vacancies which had been advertised between December 9, 2016 and 2017. Bhainsla and other Gurjar leaders met the chief secretary at the secretariat in the evening.
