One person died today in Palanpur in north Gujarat, about 145 km from Ahmedabad. There is a curfew in several parts of Ahmedabad, where the Army is expected to hold flag marches. Curfew has also been imposed in Surat, which is tense after incidents of arson and clashes this morning. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for calm in Gujarat. "Violence does not benefit anybody," the PM said in an appeal on television, adding, "We must work together to solve problems through talks." Hardik Patel was detained briefly by the Ahmedabad police last night. He is leading a movement by the powerful Patel or Patedar caste that wants reservation in government jobs and colleges. The state government led by Chief Minister Anandiben says that's not possible because Gujarat has already hit a 50 per cent cap on reservation, a limit imposed by the Supreme Court. Hardik Patel says the Patedars have to find room in the state's list of "reserved" categories. "Our movement is non-violent, we have not triggered any violence," he said today. Mr Patel has called for a bandh or strike today; schools and colleges in Ahmedabad are closed. As many as 100 buses were set on fire overnight and property damaged in the violence in Ahmedabad, Surat and Mehsana cities and the towns of Unjha and Visnagar, senior local officers said. The Centre has rushed about 5,000 paramilitary personnel to Gujarat and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh spoke to Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel this morning, assuring her of all help. Internet services on mobile phones have been suspended in some parts of the state to check the spread of rumours through WhatsApp and SMS. Internet can be accessed on computers in homes and offices.
