"I can't say anything about the letter because I have not received the so-called letter", Anandiben told mediapersons in Bedla town of the district where she had come for state government's Gunotsav programme.
The CM said her government was holding meetings with Patidar (Patel) leaders and had withdrawn several cases registered against the youths from the community (filed during the violent agitation for reservations in OBC quota).
"Nearly 250 cases have been dropped by the government and the number would increase", she said.
In the letter addressed to the CM, sent from Surat jail, Hardik reportedly accused BJP of using Patels as a votebank.
"During your speech at a function... few days back you said Patels are selfish and thieves. Now I am having a doubt as to whether you really belong to the Patel community", he asked the Chief Minister.
The government has withdrawn non-serious criminal cases against Patel youths, but the sedition cases filed against Hardik and his top aides have not been withdrawn.
