 August 25, 2018: On the eve of the third anniversary of the quota agitation in Gujarat, Patidar leader Hardik Patel on Friday said that he would proceed on an indefinite hunger strike from Saturday even if authorities deny him permission for it or the court cancels his bail.

Clashes had broken out during the quota protests led by Patel in 25 August, 2015, leading to the death of 14 people and large-scale destruction of public property.

Gandhinagar Collector SK Langa on Friday denied Patel permission to hold the fast at Satyagrah Chhavni area.

Meanwhile, the city sessions court is expected to announce its verdict on Monday on a government plea seeking cancellation of Patel's anticipatory bail in a rioting case.

Speaking to reporters on Friday in the wake of these two developments, Patel said that he would proceed with the fast in jail, in the event of the court cancelling his bail, or at home if government authorities deny him a venue for the protest.

"If the court cancels my bail than I am ready to go to jail. I will sit on hunger strike in jail. I am not afraid of the BJP government or of going behind bars. I am not going to drop my plans out of any intimidation," Patel told reporters.

Patel claimed that several national leaders, including Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and West Bengal chief minister Mamta Banerjee, may come to Gujarat to support him.
