The Rajasthan State Assembly on Monday witnessed uproar over farm loan waiver and reservation for the Gujjar community.
Though the BJP legislators raised slogan saying ‘Karz maafi dhokha hai’ (loan waiver is a deceit), Rashtriya Loktantrik Party’s patron Hanuman Beniwal along with BSP MLAs raised slogans demanding 5 percent reservation for the Gujjar community.
The statewide stir launched by the Gujjar community demanding reservation in government jobs and education institutes entered its fourth day on Monday.
Beniwal, along with RLP legislator Indra Devi and BSP’s Rajendra Singh Guda and Joginger Singh Avana stepped into the well of the House with a few others and started raising slogans of taking the Gujjar agitation issue to Delhi to get 5 percent reservation for the community.
Other opposition MLAs also stepped into the well and raised slogans that the government had deceived farmers by making false promises.
Amid the commotion, Speaker CP Joshi adjourned the proceedings for an hour.
