Patidar leader Hardik Patel quits Congress, blames Rahul Gandhi for his resignation
Hardik Patel, the Patidar movement's leader, and Gujarat's youth face has resigned from the Congress party.

Gujarat’s assembly elections are scheduled for later this year, but the turmoil started six months ago. Hardik Patel, the Patidar movement’s leader, and Gujarat’s youth face has resigned from the Congress party. Hardik was the Gujarat Congress’ working president.

While giving an interview to a leading Hindi news portal, Hardik Patel blamed Congress President Rahul Gandhi for his resignation. He said even though Rahul Gandhi knew that he was going to resign from the party, he still couldn’t take out 5 minutes for the working president and if he had talked, then this situation would not have happened today. “One should not stay where there is no respect. We are born by our hard work, “he said.

On asking why he left Congress even though he was made the working president of the party within a year of joining Congress, he said it happened for the first time in 1985 that the Congress party got more than 60 seats. After that, I felt that if the strength of Congress and ours were one, then the fight for people’s rights could be fought comfortably by living up to the expectations of the people in the state.

He further said that he thought Rahul Gandhi would understand and help him, and that’s why he joined the Congress party under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi. After joining the party, the state leadership harassed, humiliated, and saddened us. I went to campaigns in the state as well as across the country and worked for the strength of the party. A year later, I was made working president, he added.

If someone does not get a chance to fulfill the responsibility even after getting the position, then what will he do? For two and a half years, I was kept as working president, but to date, my responsibility has not been fixed. I was not given any work, he said. Hardik also said that the Congress party does not even put the photo of the working president on the posters.

BJP’s Bihar unit chief Samrat Chaudhary was addressing a public rally in Bihar’s Araria district when he compared Congress leader Rahul Gandhi with slain terrorist former Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden and said Rahul Gandhi cannot become the Prime Minister of the India just by growing a beard.

Choudhary’s comments came months after former Congress leader Rahul Gandhi during his Bharat Jodo Yatra sported a beard. The BJP leader also slammed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar that he is going around the country telling everyone that he is the Prime Minister of the country. He said Kumar has lost his mental balance.

He commented on the opposition’s inability to select a Prime Ministerial candidate for the Lok Sabha Elections 2024. He said kumar’s mental state resembled the character of Bollywood actor Aamir Khan in the film Ghajini. A meting of opposition parties is going to take place in Patna to chalk out a strategy for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and fight united against the BJP.

A range of senior opposition leaders like Sharad Pawar, Mallikarjun Kharge, Mamata Banerjee, Rahul Gandhi and others are going to be a part of the meeting.

Earlier, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma had made similar comments on Rahul Gandhi’s look. He had made a comparison of Gandhi with Saddam Hussein and advised him to shave his beard so that he could look like former Indian PM Jawaharlal Nehru. Meanwhile Choudhary said, if BJP government is formed in Bihar action will be taken against those involved in cow slaughter. Continuing on his remarks on Gandhi Choudhary said Gandhi is a child and even questioned his political acumen.

He said although Rahul is 50 years old he lacks the political intelligence comparing him with a child having intellectual capacity of a child. Choudhary even addressed the issue of love Jihad. He said, if BJP government comes to power in Bihar, love jihadists will be identified and prosecuted.

He said, the BJP stressed on identifying and deporting Bangladeshi infiltrators from across the border.
