A group of Patidar youths disrupted yoga guru Ramdev’s camp in Surat Wednesday after getting inside as participants. The camp at Haridham Party plot in Surat’s Punagam area has been on since Monday. It is believed that the youths reacted to Ramdev’s alleged comment on reservation.
Eyewitnesses said the youths sat in the crowd. Suddenly, they started raising “Jay Sardar, Jay Patidar” slogans.
When Ramdev’s security guards intervened, a clash broke out.
