The man leading an agitation demanding quota for the Patel community in Gujarat, will launch the Patel Nav Nirman Sena in New Delhi.

Hardik Patel, the man leading an agitation demanding reservation for the Patel community in Gujarat, will launch a political party — the Patel Nav Nirman Sena (PNNS) — in New Delhi on September 30. On the occasion, the party will also hold its first national executive meeting with Mr. Patel as its president.

Akhilesh Katiyar, who handles Mr. Patel’s engagements in Delhi, will be the general secretary. He was earlier with the Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP), led by Upendra Kushwaha, but was asked to leave after it was discovered that he was Mr. Patel’s point man in Delhi. Mr. Patel himself stopped over in Delhi on Monday, en route to Gujarat from Jharkhand, but remained confined to his south Delhi hotel.
