Hardik Patel Joins Cong Ahead Of Polls

Hardik Patel Can't Contest Elections

Patidar Agitation leader Hardik Patel officially joined Congress party on Tuesday during a party rally in Ahmedabad that was organised after the Congress Working Committee meeting held in the city.

Patel was inducted into the party in the presence of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge and other leaders. 

Speaking to media in the city, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said Hardik Patel would surely emerge victorious in the upcoming elections.

Earlier today, Hardik had said he would help strengthen the ideology of Congress party and take it to the villages.

“Mahatma Gandhi started Dandi March this day and said he (Mahatma Gandhi) will overthrow the British. I am joining the same Congress party which, in the past, has been led by Subhash Chandra Bose, Pandit Nehru, Sardar Patel, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, the people who worked to strengthen our country,” he had said.

However, Patel said the party would decide the seat from where he would contest polls. 

Patel emerged as the leader of the agitation demanding reservation for the Patidar community in Gujarat in 2015. The people from this community were considered to be bedrock supporters of the BJP. (ANI)
