Hardik’s 27 Crore Reminder To Govt

Hardik Patel, the face of Patel quota stir in Gujarat, on Sunday (August 30) announced plans for a nation-wide agitation seeking reservation for nearly “27 crore people” of various communities including Gujjars and Kurmis. The 22-year-old leader, who held a series of meeting with various community leaders here, said the reservation agitation “was a marathon and not a 100-metre race” and he intends to hold mega-rallies in different parts of the country to widen the stir. “Whatever has happened in Gujarat, we want to take it at the national level and there are (people of) around 12 states who are connected to us,” he said. Hardik had led a massive rally on August 25 to press for quota for Patidar community under OBC category in Ahmedabad. His detention was followed by widespread violence which claimed the lives of ten people including a police constable and kept the state administration on tenterhooks.
