AHMEDABAD: Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Gujarat, Patel quota agitation leader Hardik Patel and 50 of his supporters today got their heads tonsured, alleging "atrocities" against their community by the BJP government, and launched a 'march for justice'.

Hardik and 50 members of his Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) got their heads shaved as a mark of protest at Lathidad village this morning. Thereafter, they embarked on 'Nyay Yatra' from Botad district, about 155 kms from here, to highlight their demands, including inclusion in the OBC category for reservation.

"Along with the 50 PAAS members, I decided to get our heads shaved to highlight the atrocities committed by this government on our community in the last two years. Now, we are embarking on the Nyay Yatra to seek justice," Hardik told reporters.

The march, which commenced from Botad, would pass through around 50 villages and end in neighbouring Bhavnagar city.
