Gujjar leader Kirori Lal Bainsla, who was not traceable for two days, will meet Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Friday morning, to discuss the agreement he had reached with her regarding the community's demand for ST status.
Prior to attending the Jat Mahasabha, currently underway in Pushkar, Bainsla is expected to try and salvage the agreement, which has come under much fire from the Gujjars. Many of the community's members have accused him to 'selling out' to the government.
Bainsla will be accompanied by other Gujjar leaders, including Dr Roop Singh.
