NEW DELHI: Patidar agitation leader Hardik Patel tied the knot with his childhood friend Kinjal Parikh in a traditional ceremony at Surendranagar, in Gujarat, on Sunday. The 25-year-old, who recently shared the dais with leaders of Opposition parties in Kolkata, kept the wedding a private affair, with only a handful of guests. 

“This is the beginning of the second innings of my family life.... We have pledged to fight together for the navnirman (reconstruction) of the country,” he told reporters after the ceremony.

Both Patel and his wife are natives of Viramgam in Ahmedabad district, though the newly-married bride’s family lives in Surat. 

Kinjal is a graduate pursuing a degree in law. She and Hardik’s sister Monika were classmates, reports said. Her father, Dilip Parikh, who deals in real estate, told reporters the two families have known each other for the last three decades.
