Hardik Patel came into the political fray with his agitation for reservation for his Patidar community in 2015.
He recently attended the united opposition rally hosted by Mamata Banerjee on January 19. The rally intends to unite the opposition against the BJP ahead of the Lok Sabha 2019.
Patel is also facing charges of sedition for his agitation in 2015. A sessions court on Tuesday framed charges against Patidar leader Hardik Patel and his two aides in a sedition case filed against them in connection with the violence that had broken out during the community's quota agitation in August 2015, paving the way for their trial.
As per the charge sheet, Hardik and his aides, who were part of the Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS), were allegedly involved in inciting the Patel community youths to resort to violence as part of their conspiracy to put undue pressure on the government to accept their demand of reservation to their community under the OBC category.
Sessions judge D P Mahida framed charges under IPC sections 124 (A) (sedition), 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy) and others against Hardik, Dinesh Bambhaniya and Chirag Patel, who were out on bail, in the sedition case filed by Ahmedabad crime branch, nearly three years after the police filed a charge sheet against them.
With this, the trial against the trio is likely to begin from January 29, the next date of hearing. If convicted, the maximum sentence is life imprisonment for these offences.
