Rahul Gandhi not my leader, waiting for Priyanka Gandhi: Hardik Patel
Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader Hardik Patel is eagerly waiting for Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s entry into active politics. While advocating her foray into politics, the Patidar leader further said current Congress president Rahul Gandhi is not his “leader”.
“I like Rahul Gandhi at a personal level, but I do not consider him as a leader because he is not my leader,” Patel said. What? What did we just hear over? Rahul Gandhi is not considered as a leader by Hardik Patel? That’s right. Hardik has realized its high time Congress and Sonia Gandhi realize now.
Hardik Patel, the 24-year-old face of the Patidar campaign in Gujarat, said he did not consider Congress president Rahul Gandhi “my leader”, adding that he favoured the entry of Mr Gandhi’s sister Priyanka Vadra in politics. Patel further announced that he will not contest Lok Sabha elections in 2019, despite attaining the eligibility age of 25 years.
“No, I am not going to contest the Lok Sabha election next year against (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi. In fact, I have decided not to contest the election next year, despite the fact that I would be eligible to take a plunge into the electoral battlefield.”
“I will be able to contest elections and no one can stop me from doing so. However, I think it is more important to feel the pulse of the people, whom I would represent in the Assembly or Parliament. First, I want to understand everything and most importantly, what the public wants and deserves,” said Patel.
Last year, Patel could not contest the Gujarat Assembly election due to age limitations. Patel, who recently had his sex video gone viral all over the social media, went on to admit that he had a girlfriend and that he would be marrying her. Well, something good to hear. Congress is concentrating on things that suit them rather than ruin politics.
Patel, who has been agitating for reservation for the Patidar community of Gujarat, had worked closely with the Congress during the Assembly polls held in the state in December last year. He claimed that if the Congress had supported his movement with “full capacity”, the BJP’s tally in the Gujarat Assembly polls would have been 60 seats and not 99. The Congress had bagged 77 seats in the 182-member House.
The Patidar spearhead said social media can be used in Maharashtra to defeat the incumbent BJP state government in next year’s assembly elections. “If someone can become the chief minister in Gujarat using social media, then the government can be toppled in Maharashtra using social media,” Patel had said during an interactive session with social media activists of the Mumbai Congress.
The congressmen are now concentrating on what suits their character. Rahul Gandhi is more a leader to anyone in politics. Though we Indians knew it. This is a biggest fact revealed, isn’t it?
