'Jungle Raj' in Gujarat: Anandiben-led BJP govt mishandles Patel agitation, protesters burn down home minister's property
The government claims that the protests have been controlled now and there is no more violence, but the fact remains that the community is bitter and angry.
The minister's unoccupied house in Mehsana was set afire by angry Patidars who want their leader Hardik Patel, released from the jail.
Hardik Patel has been in jail ever since he was booked for sedition last year and was thrown into the prison, since then.
The Patels want reservation in jobs and education like other backward castes. However, the Gujarat government has refused to budge.
But with Jat agitation succeeding in meeting the objective in Haryana, the Patidars (or Patels) in Gujarat are even more furious and are back on the streets.
On Monday, a Bhavin Mansukh Kunt, a 27-year-old, committed suicide as a mark of protest against Anandiben government's indifference towards the demands of the Patel community. In Mehsana, Ahmedabad, Rajkot and Surat too, normal life was affected.
