Hardik patel meets farmers in vadodara,labelled BJP and congress as thieves

Posted October 24, 2017

Narendra Patel, a Patidar leader from north Gujarat, on Sunday alleged that the BJP tried to buy his political loyalty and presented wads of currency notes as proof.

"If Congress feels that they can win the Assembly polls in Gujarat by joining hands with Pakistan based terrorists, like Hafiz Saeed or any other such terrorists, they would send them invitation without any hesitation", said Patel.

Narendra Patel, a leader of the Hardik Patel-led Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS), had levelled the charge, which has been rubbished by the BJP.

Hours before his visit, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Monday said that Gujarat is priceless and it can never be bought.

The Congress vice president is visiting poll-bound Gujarat today, where he is expected to meet Patel quota agitation leader Hardik Patel and Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani.

He also claimed that was given Rs 10 lakh advance on Sunday itself and was promised that the remaining Rs 90 lakh will be given to him on Monday.

Taking dig on BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said that he keep reminding his father to check my bank account whether Rs 15 lakh have been deposited in it or not.the money has got deposited, not in our account but in the account of Jay Shah who is the son of BJP national president Amit Shah. He also alleged that BJPP had kept aside a budget of Rs 500 crore to offer to all those leaders who were willing to join the party. The Congress says this has been done to ensure that the PM has a large window to announce policies and projects that will skew voters towards his party, which has governed Gujarat uninterrupted for two decades.

The Congress spokesperson has also demanded a judicial enquiry on the claims made by the Patidar leader Narendra Patel.

In Gujarat, the BJP have realised that they do not have a chance of coming back to power, he said. "We have asked for an inquiry into the matter", Pandya said. Hardik Patel to this has said that he will not be able to meet Rahul Gandhi but something can be done within the next few days. In his statement to the press he said that he was not offered any money by BJP to join the party, he had only joined keeping in mind the betterment of the Patidars and hoping that BJP will keep up its promises. The close aide of Hardik Patel then congratulated Narendra Patel.
