Mumbai: The Supreme Court, which heard Patel quota agitation leader Hardik Patel’s plea today, said that people cannot destroy public property and hold everything to ransom to get their demands fufilled.
The apex court observed that a call must be taken on the issue and added that guidelines should be framed in this regard.
The apex court also said that the people and political parties must pay for damaging public properties.
Hardik is facing a series of cases, including those for alleged sedition and has been in jail since his arrest in October last year.
He is one of the accused in an FIR filed on July 23, when a rally of Patel community seeking reservation turned violent, resulting in damage to property and assault on some media persons. (ANI)
