Patidar agitation: Mayur Patel, however, told Arvind Kejriwal that they have received all help from the Gujarat government and they “do not expect anything more”.

Delhi CM and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal, who reached Gujarat Friday evening on a two-day trip, visited Patidar-dominated societies in Mehsana.

He met family members of Nishit Patel and Mayur Patel, who were killed in police firing last year after the quota agitation turned violent.

“Whoever ordered the firing, whether a magistrate or an official above him, should be booked,” he said. Relatives of Mayur Patel, however, told Kejriwal that they have received all help from the Gujarat government and they “do not expect anything more”.
