    1. Two people were reportedly killed in clashes last night in the Vastral area of Ahmedabad. One person died today in Palanpur in north Gujarat, about 145 km from Ahmedabad.
    2. 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.
    3. 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."
    4. 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.
    5. 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.
    6. 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.
    7. Mr Patel has called for a bandh or strike today; schools and colleges in Ahmedabad are closed.
    8. 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.
    9. 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.
    10. 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.

    Half the Patels are in US, UK, or Africa. Looks like the ones on the left end of the bell curve are jealous. In all honesty Patels are technically Shudras so they somewhat have a valid concern.

    Strange coincidence that caste based riots start soon after syed pirzada(Pakistani strategist and analyst) tweets about it. He addresses AK and RG in the tweet as well. Quite interesting I must say.

    This is BJP's masterstroke. BJP consolidated it's OBC vote bank in Gujarat and thanks to the chaos/violence political life of Hardik Patel has officially ended even before it could begin.

    Hardik Patel could not pace it up well, he peaked too early. Whoever supported this agitation put his/her bet on wrong horse.

    Some people are saying that this may be the first step in the direction of removing Caste-Based Reservation. Jats are going to start agitating sooner or later.

    Bhai stop posting NDTV links.You are making them money.Every visit to their site earns them money.
    Most of the MSM are a$$holes and anti nationals and NDTV ranks top.

    Reservation is a problem.But you can't strike it off at one go.Country will fall into turmoil.
    Reservation has to be cut down in a phase wise manner.It's like one who has good financial background shouldn't be eligible(or decrease their quote phase wise) for reservation.First it should be applied to education then if everything goes well apply it to political quotas.
    May be an appeal from PM Modi to forgo their reservation at right time may kick start it like forgoing subsidy of cylinders.

    I saw one of his older tweet where he was promising AAP's Kaviraj of atleast 5 loksabha seats from Gujarat. Most probably he is working under the instructions of his highness Kejriwal.

    New Congi-AAP strategy: You can't beat Modi until you divide Hindus along caste lines. Hope the majority of the Patels aren't subscribing to this, otherwise they face economic isolation around the country.

    Sir, it is all about weak Modi. Nothing else.

    Take it in this way.......

    Modi has better understanding with President Obama. Now we all know this.

    Then why can't Modi request President Obama to help and support India to fight against black money.

    With President's help and support, get those overseas documents related to black money....!

    Once those documents arrives in India then how much time it take to fix all those tom / dick / harry type Indian politicians.

    Is that too hard....?
    OR
    Even I talk for Sun and Moon...!

    Modi isn't weak. He's more effective than he ever was, while maintaining a veil of political correctness, with which liberals can never fight him head-on, either in public discourse, or legally. It's a clever thing to do.

    BJP is more than happy not passing the GST bill in the parliament. It was the one which was principally opposed to it, and now it gets to blame Congress for stalling it.

    GST only hurts regional parties, because it greatly reduces state revenues that are controlled by state governments. What really hurts Congress the most is Land Acquisition bill, because most Congis are benami owners of crores of acres of land. They stash their benami lands through villagers, and so if the government is acquiring land from villagers, it's Congis who are effectively stripped of it.

    This has been the most effective government at the LoC in decades. OROP is a pointless agitation since government has already agreed to it.

    So all that Modi's detractors are left with, is dividing Hindus along caste lines, and they're starting it in Modi-Shah's home bastion of Gujarat. It will prove to be a very costly mistake for them. BJP has been winning that region because they've figured out how to manage Patels. This agitation will be allowed to simmer just enough to give the centre legitimate cause to move in and crush it, without giving Modi's detractors reason to cry foul.

    It's just that BJP does not have a good enough PR machinery.

    We need to amend this quota system, 50% reserved seats is ridiculous.

    Yes, with reservation and Muslim population rise, it's only a matter of time before upper-caste Hindus demand a separate nation.

    This situation is a huge benefit for BJP. Nitish Kumar already supported this movement and hardik also mentioned him as Patel, now BLP will have advantage of this in Bihar because OBC voters will get away from him. Also by not giving any Reservation to Patels BP will win confidence of OBC voters all over India.

    Now the actual plan here is to give a big start to AAP in gujrat so that he can give tough competition by making it a 3 way poll. Just like Delhi.

    Problem is that in Delhi this all AAP drama was going on in the name of Corruption but in Gujrat it's reservation. Now if AAP comes and support Hardik they will loose all OBC/ST/SC votes All over India.

    Also almost all other upper cast communities are also not happy with this Drama.

    This is a game AAP, Congis and parties started but BJP is the only winner here.
