Father was offered crores  to stop Hardik from rally

 Patel quota leader Hardik Patel’s father was offered Rs 15 crore-Rs 20 crore to stop his son from attending the Mahakranti Rally that was held in Ahmedabad on August 25, 2015.

The Patels had held a massive rally in Ahmedabad on August 25, 2015, which saw almost a million people at the event to press for quota.

 The developments after this rally led to violence in the state with 11 deaths and the Army called in to control violence.

The revelation was made by Bharat Patel, Hardik’s father, at a rally in Jam Jodhpur in Saurashtra, to mark the beginning of Patidaar Ekta Yatra across the Saurashtra region.
“They said that take this money and just see that your son does not attend the rally. I spoke to my son Hardik and he also said that we do not want such money,” he told a massive gathering of Patels. He, however, did not reveal who had offered the money.

The Patels in Saurashtra region on Wednesday kick-started a Patidar Ekta Yatra, that would travel across the region in the coming month to press for reservation.

Earlier in February, Hardik wrote a letter claiming that he was offered Rs 1,200 crore by a senior bureaucrat working in the Anandiben Patel’s government and considered close to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah to give up his agitation.
