Hardik Patel removes Congress name from his Twitter bio
Gujarat Congress working president Hardik Patel has removed the name of Congress from Twitter bio.
New Delhi: Big news coming from Gujarat Congress where the Congress working president Hardik Patel has removed the name of Congress from his Twitter bio, after removing the party's name and symbol from his Whatsapp DP last week. Speculations on rife about Hardik Patel acting president of the Gujarat Congress, joining the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) after hailing the BJP's decision citing them as good for the national interest. Assembly elections are due in Gujarat at the end of this year. Hardik was not happy with the state as well as the central leadership of Congress for the last few months. Hardik was a well-accepted leader among the Patidar community of Gujarat.
Given the manner in which Hardik Patel has been expressing dissatisfaction with the Congress and praising the BJP for the last few weeks, it would not be a surprise if he joins BJP to make a niche for himself in Gujarat politics. For some time now, Congress-acting president and leading Patidar leader Hardik Patel has been unhappy with the party's leadership. After meeting the high command in Delhi, he said goodbye to the Congress and signaled to join the BJP. He made it clear that he was impressed with the leadership of the BJP and its organizational strength and that the BJP leadership has the ability to make decisions. He hails decisions like the abrogation of Article -370 and the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya as nationalist decisions.
Earlier this month, the Top Court provided relief to Hardik by staying his conviction in a 2015 rioting case, which will allow him to contest the 2022 Gujarat assembly election. Hardik had shot to fame in 2015 when he spearheaded the Patidar reservation agitation in the regime of the then CM Anandiben Patel who has to leave her post due to the agitation.
