Name – Hardik Patel

Hardik Patel, is the convener of the 2-month old Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti
His supporters call him "New Modi" and some even compare him with the 'Iron Man of India' Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. He has been given the title of ‘Patidar Hriday Samrat' by his followers.

Hardik Patel comes from an average middle-class Patidar family from Viramgam, near Ahmedabad.

Family Profession –
Farming and a small submersible-pumps business in rural Ahmedabad
Hardik used to run his small family business of supplying water to commercial establishments.

Political Background –
Hardik's father is a BJP worker from Viramgam.
In 2011, Hardik launched 'Sardar Patel Sevadal' for the protection of Patel’s.

Hardik was a member of the Sardar Patel Group (SPG), a leading Patidar youth body, and was president of its Viramgam unit. But he was ousted from the post because the leader of the SPG, Lalji Patel, was not amenable to the idea of Hardik promoting his PAAS.

In July Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) was formed
Hardik feels that Patidars are losing in the development race because of the present reservation regime. He said, "A Patidar student with 90% marks does not get admission in an MBBS course, while SC/ST or OBC students get it with 45% marks." He said that Patidars were not against SC/ST or OBC communities getting their due.

What is the demand of Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS)
Demand – Want Reservation, inclusion in the OBC category.
They want Patel’s to be listed as an OBC (Other Backward Class), and 5% reservation for landless Patidars under the Special Backward Class quota.

Presently, 40 of the 120 BJP law-makers in the state are Patel’s, including Chief Minister Anandiben and seven of her senior cabinet colleagues.

The Patel’s constitute 18-20% of Gujarat’s total population.

Other communities which participate in the agitation include Sardar Patel Group (SPG) headed by Lalji Patel, Sardar Patel Seva Dal, Patidar Sankalan Samiti and Patidar Arakshan Samiti.

The state government led by Chief Minister Anandiben says that's not possible because Gujarat has already hit a 50 per cent cap on reservation, a limit imposed by the Supreme Court.

Addressing one of the biggest rally in in Ahmedabad this afternoon, Hardik Patel issued an open threat to the state government – “Won’t allow the Lotus to bloom in Gujarat in 2017, if our demands are not met.”
We can also do a `Kejriwal` here... We shall not allow anybody to fire bullets on our chests... If no reservations, then no Lotus (BJP symbol) in 2017,"

Hardik Patel said following “Either free the country from reservation or make everybody the slave of reservation,”
“Our people don’t get jobs despite scoring 80-90 per cent marks, so they are forced to do their own business because of this reservation system,” he said. Jobs were cornered by those from the reserved categories. “The Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes have reservation, yet they get jobs in the general quota, too,”

Mr. Patel told The Hindu : “The reality in Gujarat is vastly different from what is being projected. It is very much like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Thousands of farmers have committed suicide. Go to the rural areas to see [it] for yourself.”
