    Rajasthan continues to remain volatile on day six of the Gurjar protests. State government will hold fifth round of talks with Gurjars agitating for ST status to finalise an agreement on ending the crisis. Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje had last night said she will hold talks with the convenor of Gurjar Sangharsh Samiti Col Kirori Singh Bhainsla to finalise the agreement

    From dictioanry :
    volatile = likely to change suddenly and unexpectedly or suddenly become violent or angry.

    I wonder, how `Rajasthan' ( a place) could bring sudden change.

    Also, what does `convenor' mean in this context?

    Please help me.

    Re: convenor

    'Rajasthan' does not indicate the place, but its citizenry (cf 'Washington has woken to the fact that it needs a strong Europe capable of contributing to global security').

    A convenor is someone who calls a meeting together, but I am not familiar with this news, so you will have to interpret its reference within the context of the story-- which I presume is part of your own society.
