Hardik Patel, who led the Patel community’s agitation for reservation in Gujarat, on Sunday, said he won’t allow any political party to enter his agitation.

“We are not here to meet any minister. Political parties are not welcomed in the agitation,” said Patel after reaching the national capital.

Patel, who is going to address the media in the afternoon, asserted that merely five to ten percent of the Patel community members are economically sound and, hence, the community needs reservation.

“We want to take our movement to every part of the nation and have come to Delhi to make future plan of action. We want the support of Jats and Gurjars,” he added.
