Bharat Singh Solanki, Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee President has met Hardik Patel-led Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) PAAS leaders in Ahmedabad on Sunday late evening.
Solanki said that the meeting was successful as both the parties have reached common agreement and understanding over the issues which were pending since the last meeting.
He further said that PAAS did not ask for any ticket to any seat for the upcoming Gujarat elections. He added that Alpesh Thakur and Jignesh Mevani too did not ask for any tickets for the state assembly polls.
On Saturday, cracks in Patidar and Congress friendship started showing and they were even visible when one of Hardik Patel’s close aide gave a 24-hour ultimatum to the party to clear its stand on reservation.
Hardik Patel’s former close aide Chirag Patel on Thursday had joined the BJP in the presence of Gujarat Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel.
Chirag, who is also facing sedition charges along with Hardik, after joining BJP attacked the Patidar leader and said, “He is trying to fulfil his personal ambitions in the garb of leading the agitation for reservation to Patidar community.”
Meanwhile, PAAS leader Dinesh Bambhaniya said, â€œOur first and last concern is reservation. Hardik Patel will make an announcement from Rajkot, tomorrow.â€
