New Delhi: Accusing the Gujarat government of targetting her husband, Patidar community leader Hardik Patel, wife Kinjal Patel complained that Hardik has been missing for the past 20 days. “We have no information regarding his whereabouts. We are deeply pained by his absence and want the people to think whether they can bear this kind of separation,” Kinjal said in a video.
“In 2017, this government was saying that all cases on Patidars will be taken back. Then why are they targeting Hardik alone? Why not the two other leaders of the Patidar movement who joined the BJP?” she said.
On January 18, Hardik was arrested in connection with the sedition case filed against him in 2015. Four days later, he got bail but was again picked up again in connection with the other two cases. He got bail in those two cases too. But the trial court issued a non-bailable warrant against him on February 7 as he didn’t appear for the hearing.
However, Hardik Patel is active on Twitter. He congratulated Arvind Kejriwal on February 11.
