UMA BHARTI’S close confidante Prahlad Patel is starting 51-hour fast tomorrow here at Roshanpura Square against the BJP Government in the State. Uma Bharti would break Patel’s fast by offering a glass of juice on February 2. She will not return here on February 12 here for grand felicitation as was planned earlier.

Patel, in a letter to the Chief Minister on Sunday, lashed out at the government for allegedly shielding the accused in the Rs 700-crore ICD loan disbursement case. The token agitation would give an opportunity to the Sadhvi camp to feel the pulse of people ahead of launch of new party.

The BJP leadership would be keeping a close vigil on those who would go to meet Patel on fast. BJP MLAs Jalam Singh Patel, Sunil Naik and Rasal Singh were with Uma Bharti during her Ram Roti yatra and even dared the BJP leadership to take action against them.
