NEW DELHI: Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti leader Hardik Patel on Wednesday announced the formation of a new group, Akhil Bhartiya Patel Navnirman Sena, with the aim to unite the Kurmi, Gujjar, Maratha and Patel communities.

Patel, who has been spearheading protests in Gujarat to demand reservations for the Patel community, said at a press conference here that the new organisation would try to mobilise support of these communities on the issue of reservation.

"The Akhil Bhartiya Patel Navnirman Sena will fight for the cause of farmers, labourers and youth of the country," he said.

Patel said he would also fight for reservation in government jobs on the basis of castes.

Earlier, he had said that he would fight for reservation in jobs according to the economic condition of the candidate.

Patel also plans to organise a Mahasabha in the national capital next month to further his cause.
