Hardik Patel organised a roadshow on the outskirts of Ahmedabad despite being denied permission by cops

This is the first police case against Hardik Patel after the state Assembly elections. Three days before the second phase of Gujarat Assembly elections, the rally-cum-roadshow on motorcycles and cars was organised, which started from Bopal and culminated at Nikol area on the outskirts of Ahmedabad, covering a distance of around 15 km.

While Bopal area falls under the jurisdiction of rural police, Nikol area is under the city police limits.

Comments
After the roadshow, Police Commissioner AK Singh had expressed displeasure over Mr Patel's move and said that legal action would be taken for holding the event without permission.

Mr Singh had denied permission to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi to hold roadshows in the city during the campaign which the leaders of the two parties had obeyed.
