Hardik leaves for Gujarat | Supporters create uproar at Toll Plaza

Hardik Patel today left Udaipur after serving six months in exile outside Gujarat as per Court orders. Both the ends of Udaipur-Himmatnagar highway witnessed heavy traffic logging.

Meanwhile, supporters of Hardik Patel got into a tussle with officials at Kherwada Khandri Obri toll plaza. Hardik’s caravan started reaching the toll plaza around 10:30 am in the morning. Before the central part of the caravan carrying Hardik reached the plaza, a set of 15-20 vehicles of supporters reached the plaza. On the directions of toll manager Rajesh Mishra and JP Mishra, the employees asked for toll collection from the vehicle drivers. This agitated the supporters and the atmosphere heated up.

Toll plaza manager took support of SHO Ratan Singh and ASI Mahendra Singh tried to pacify the supporters but to no avail. In the interim, the main caravan carrying Hardik reached the plaza. Hardik’s colleague Ashok Patel immediately reached the plaza and took control over the situation. He said that they did not want to go against law and would be paying the toll fees as a lumpsum for all vehicles. Post this, the vehicles were counted and the payments made.

Rs 5200 toll was collected from the 130 vehicles that were part of the caravan. The atmosphere stayed tense for over an hour and the plaza owners heaved a sigh of relief after the passing of the caravan.
