Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader Hardik Patel has given an ultimatum to Congress over his support to the party in upcoming Gujarat assembly elections.
Patel on Saturday warned Congress to clear its stand on how the party will constitutionally provide reservation to Patidar community before November 3.
“Clear your stand before 3/11/2017 that how Congress will give Constitutional reservation to Patidar community or the party has to face what Amit shah did during his Surat rally,” PAAS leader Hardik Patel tweeted.
3/11/2017तक कोंग्रेस पाटीदार को संवैधानिक आरक्षण कैसे देंगी,उस मुद्दे पर अपना स्टेण्ड क्लीयर कर दे नहीं तो अमित शाह जैसा मामला सूरत में होगा— Hardik Patel (@HardikPatel_) October 28, 2017
BJP chief Amit Shah had to face embarrassment last month when Hardik Patel supporters spread chaos by breaking furniture during his meeting with Patidar community leaders in Surat.
The statement from Hardik Patel came a day after sources claimed that he will share the stage with Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi during his rally in Surat on November 3.
The Congress has not still reacted to Patel’s threat but the party had in the past openly extended its support to the Patidar leader.
Recently, at a rally Hardik Patel had expressed his indirect support to Congress by saying, “if you have to bring down a maha chor (mega thief) it doesn't matter if a chor (thief) is helped”.
