“Many lawyers are with us in this. The children were beaten badly in the custody. We did not burn the buses. We were picked up from our houses and case has been filed against us,” he added.

Patel further said Keshubhai Patel gave his blessings and asked them to carry on their movement through non-violence.

Hardik is expected to meet Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel today to discuss the same issue.
