Hardik Patel breaks indefinite hunger strike after 19 days

Gujarat, Sep 12: Firebrand Patidar Andolan Samiti leader Hardik Patel on Wednesday ended his indefinite hunger strike after 19 days.

After the Gujarat government refused permission for any venue for his agitation, the 25-year-old crusader on August 25 began an indefinite fast from his home to press for his demands for reservation in government jobs and educational institutions for his community and debt waiver for farmers.

On Friday, he was hospitalised in Ahmedabad after his health deteriorated, and was discharged on Sunday.

During fast, many noted personalities including Prakash Ambedkar, Shatrughan Sinha, Yashwant Sinha, Harish Rawat, Jignesh Mevani visited Patel.
