Hardik Patel, the 22-year-old, convener of Patel Navnirman Sena, has written a hand-written letter to Nitish Kumar, Bihar Chief Minister thanking him for lending support to Patidars movement in Gujarat.
He also invited the chief minister to Gujarat. Patel also expressed gratitude and confidence that under Nitish guidance social justice and communal harmony would be guarded.
The Patidars - longtime rich and powerful supporters of the ruling BJP in Gujarat, say they are struggling now. For years Patidars have been managing the family-owned businesses but now they have been sidelined, they allege, and they want a share of reserved government jobs and college seats.
