The Patidar community in the UK has sought permission to hold protest during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s upcoming visit to London, said a key quota stir leader on Sunday.

“We have written to British Prime Minister David Cameron to let us exercise our right to protest at least in their great democracy since we are not being allowed to do so by our government here in Gujarat,” said Varun Patel during a press conference here.

Close relatives of Hardik Patel, Chirag Patel, Ketan Patel and Dinesh Bambhaniya, who are currently in police custody in a sedition case, were also present. Modi is scheduled to visit the UK between November 12 and November 14 before leaving for Turkey to attend the G-20 summit.

Through the letter, the Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti, which is spearheading the movement for reservation benefits, said it wants to highlight the plight of the community, which was “wrongfully targeted by the BJP-led state government for raising the voice”.

“Political parties do get permission to hold rallies, but no Patidar community person is getting permission to hold his public function here in Gujarat,” he added.

    Patidars can easily form their own political party and vote only for that party. Finish BJP in Gujarat. There is very little need for a protest!

      No. Mr. Karunakaran, I do not agree with you. For protesting for one issue against a political leader, It is not necessary to form a political party. Mahatma hiji was protesting against Britishers before Congress was formed. Though I am not in side of Anamat Andolan as Patels are only protesting, they should involve Poor/Middle Cl Brahmins, Bania's, Jains and Other people in their agitation without involving Congress or other political Party in Gujarat. Let Mr. Modi our P.M. know that his Gujarat is not in good shape and the results of his Crony Capitalistic Policy in Gujarat was a failure and Gujarat Model is not suitable for India. In Gujarat, the real development was started from 1991 when PV Narsihrao and Dr. Manmohan Singh had started adopting liberalized import/export and Globalization Policy. Our P.M. at that time got readymade fruits and then he exploited the opportunity. Dushyant Parikh

          Modi is not concerned. He has already prepared his speech blaming Congress for this.
