Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit, Patel and his supporters launched Nyay Yatra from Botad district, highlighting their demands, including inclusion in the OBC category for reservation.
Hardik and 50 members of his Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) got their heads shaved as a mark of protest at Lathidad village this morning. Thereafter, they embarked on ‘Nyay Yatra’ from Botad district, about 155 kms from here, to highlight their demands, including inclusion in the OBC category for reservation.
The ‘Justice Yatra’ will start from Botad and will pass through around 50 villages of the district and will be completed in neighboring Bhavnagar district.
Some days ago, Hardik had announced that he would resume the reservation agitation in Gujarat and his main aim is to defeat the ruling BJP in the next Gujarat assembly elections.
Prime Minister Modi is coming to Gujarat for two days from today. They will attend the annual meeting of the African Development Bank and also in other events.
The 23-year-old quota leader had accused the state government of dilly-dallying on the issue of reservation to Patel community and warned that the ruling party would face consequences in the assembly polls if it did come up with a definitive plan on the issue at the earliest.
The Prime Minister will present and expose developmental works of 996 crore at Kandla of Kutch district today. As well as on the Narmada River at Bhachau, the dams of Ma Narmada in the Tapar dam will be increased. He will reach Ahmedabad airport late evening from Kutch. On Tuesday 23rd May, the African Development Bank will attend the annual meeting of Gandhinagar.
Hardik’s move came ahead of PM Modi’s scheduled two-day visit to his home state from today. The PM is slated to attend the annual general meeting of African Development Bank and other programmes.
