Now Hardik Fights For Patels In Madhya Pradesh
Highlights

Hardik Patel, who is spearheading an agitation seeking reservation for the Patel community in Gujarat, will be in Madhya Pradesh today to demand quota for the community there.

The 22-year-old, who is the face of an agitation seeking reservation for Patels in government jobs and colleges, will be the chief guest at a Mahapanchayat in Ratlam. The organisers claim over one lakh people will be present.
After Mr Patel was briefly detained during a massive rally in Ahmedabad in August, there was violence in many cities of Gujarat in which 10 people were killed.

In September, he was arrested after he attempted to hold a protest rally in Surat for which he did not have permission.
Though the Gujarat government has announced a Rs. 1,000-crore scheme for economically weak students in a bid to douse the stir, Mr Patel has vowed to continue his agitation.
He alleged that the package does not offer anything substantial to his community and called it a "lollipop" handed to the Patel community.
