Considering the sinking health conditions due to hunger strike, Patidar leader Hardik Patel unveiled his ‘will’ on the ninth day of strike, dividing his property among his parents, a sister, 14 youths killed during the quota agitation in 2015 and a ‘Panjrapole’ (shelter for ill and old cows) near his village.
In his will, Hardik has said that 15 per cent of royalties from an upcoming book on him should go to his parents, 15 per cent to his sister and the rest to families of the youths killed during the Patidar agitation.
Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) spokesperson Manoj Panara told that, “Hardik Patel has expressed his wish to donate his eyes in case of his death.”
Hardik Patel has been sitting on hunger strike demanding reservation for Patidars and loan waivers for farmers. He hasn’t consumed food since the past nine days.
Doctors who visited Hardik to check on his health have advised him to get admitted to a hospital as his health is deteriorating quickly. “We have advised him to be admitted to the hospital. His urine and blood pressure is normal, but Hardik has refused blood and urine tests,” one of the doctors who checked on Patel said.
