Gujarat’s Mehsana is facing curfew on Sunday following a clash between police and Patidar community.
Clashes broke out between the two sides as Patidar community staged ‘Jail Bharo’ demanding the release of Hardik Patel from the jail.
The community staged the ‘Jail Bharo’ as part of the second round of their reservation stir, even as the district administration issued notice to the campaign organizers terming it as illegal.
On Sunday morning, agitators under the banner of Sardar Patel Group (SPG) with the support of Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) gathered in Mehsana to form a human chain.
Later, they moved towards the Mehsana sub-jail to court arrest.
On Saturday, SPG leader said that talks with the Gujarat government over the 27-point demands on April 11 failed and hence, we have decided to resume the stir.
