Patidar leader Hardik Patel all set to hold grand roadshow in Surat; PAAS workers invite people on social media
Hardik Patel, who is the convenor and a prominent face of Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS), has planned an extensive campaign including a mega roadshow and rally in Surat city on December 3, encompassing six constituencies, in the run-up to the first phase of Assembly elections, scheduled to be held on December 9.

Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik will also hold a public meeting at Yogi Chowk in Varachha area of the city on the same day.

According to the Surat PAAS team, Hardik's election rally named - 'Jankranti Maha Rally', will start at 9 am from Gajera circle located at Katargam in Surat.

"We have planned the roadshow-cum-rally in such a way that all the six constituencies — Katargam, Surat North, Karanj, Varachha, Kamrej and Olpad, where Patidars reside in large numbers — will be covered. There will be over 5,000 motorcycles, over 500 cars, and 50 autorickshaws in the rally. We have made songs on Hardik which will be played during the roadshow. We are expecting over 30,000 people to take part in the vehicle rally… over one lakh people will attend his public meeting at Yogi Chowk," said Surat PAAS co-convener Alpesh Katheriya.

He further said, "During the roadshow, Congress candidates will felicitate Hardik Patel. But, if BJP MLA candidates reach there, we will not allow them to join in. It is a fight between the Patidars and the BJP."

Regarding this, the PAAS has already sought police permission for Hardik's 30-km roadshow and also for the public meeting.

However, PAAS outfits have also made it clear that if they don't get police permission to hold such roadshow and rally, their members will take out the campaign at any cost, even without the police nod, as reported in the Indian Express.  

"Today, we submitted an application for the roadshow and the public meeting to Surat police. If we don't get permission, we will take out the rally and organise the public meeting anyway. If police arrest us before the rally starts, we are ready for it," Katheriya said.

Besides other media, people are being invited using social media platforms by PAAS members ahead of Hardik's roadshow and public meeting.
