Hardik writes to CM, threatens fresh agitation

Ahmedabad : Patel quota leader Hardik Patel has threatened to launch another round of agitation for reservation under OBC category and accused the Gujarat government of “failing” to resolve the main issue.

In a letter addressed to Chief Minister Anandiben Patel on Saturday, Hardik, lodged in Surat jail, said if the issue was not sorted out soon the BJP will face the “wrath” of Patels in 2017 Assembly elections.

The copies of letter were made public today by his lawyer. Hardik, who had spearheaded the quota stir last year, also “welcomed” the decision of the state government to withdraw non-serious cases registered against Patel youths.          “I welcome your decision to withdraw cases against innocent Patel youths. However, the main issue, for which we have taken the path of agitation, is yet to be resolved by you. There is no word about that issue from the BJP-led state government yet,” Hardik wrote, reports PTI.
