    Did police take court's permission to record citizens private calls? or again they took law in their own hands and tried to frame innocent citizens in numerous ways. For example: Police started lathi charge on peacefully protesting innocent citizens at GMDC ground (Google :"gmdc ground police") and even breaking reporters cameras. Every citizen has basic Human Rights that include freedom of Speech, embly and Peion. Secondly, Police intentionally started destroying private property of citizens (GOOGLE :"police brutality gujarat" "police destroying vehicles gujarat") . Thirdly, if someone opposed police actions they were picked-up by police and charges with any crime and some even died in police custody (GOOGLE : "custodial death in gujarat"). Forthly, when people started recording police illegal actions and putting videos on internet, they banned internet in Gujarat for days. As soon as Gujarat was handed over to Army everything became normal. When youth from community were angry on police illegal actions, police quietly recorded their conversation (audio/video) and again trying to charge them with crime like sedition, and making innocent citizen into criminal. WE REQUEST HIGH COURT AND SUPREME COURT TO LOOK INTO EVENTS BEFORE THIS CONVERSATION AND ACT ACCORDINGLY... HOW WILL OUR LAW PUNISH COPS IN THESE VIDEOS AND WILL THEY CHARGE COP WHO KILLED INNOCENT CITIZENS WITH MURDER? SO NO COP IN INDIA WOULD EVER DARE TO TAKE LAW IN THEIR OWN HANDS.  Please google "Patidar Surat" and "Patidar Ahmedabad" to see Millions of youth rally to for a cause, and also see how they and their leaders were denied "freedom of expression", their leaders hared and charged with crime to put end to the movement. ******************************************************************************************* Modi's are rich, Chauhan's are rich, Yadav's are rich and Mayawati is extremly rich.. they are all I guess covered under OBC, by hook or crook... Why rich people are enjoying the fruit of system created for poor dalits? I totally agree with Bhagwatji and Shiv Sena that review of caste based quota reservation policy is needed. Since 1947 we have caste based reservation system, but it only helps 5% rich in ST, SC and OBC, they and their family are the one taking advantage of this system poor families from ST, SC and OBC do not benefit from it. ST, SC and OBC family that makes more than Rs 50000 yearly or who owns et worth Rs 1 Lacks must be excluded from this system so the real poor from caste can benefit, or the other alternative is to make this system available to all poor Indians irrespective of their caste and truly on economy bases. Do you think Rich Modi's, Rich Yadav's and Rich Mayawati's, Rich Chauhan's really need caste based reservation? yes, poor do! **************************************************************** Thanks waiting for your reply and input

      SC and SC reservations in all aspects "ALL" is not about being rich or poor, its about social inequality which is created by ppl of even a caste higher than that, well educated OBCs think they are superior than SC/ST, leave about uneducated ppl. Y is this so..coz its about social inequality. lets keep aside the Economic situations.
