Congress leaders averse to truth, says Hardik Patel



Patidar leader Hardik Patel on Thursday strongly criticised the functioning of the Congress and called the decision of leaving grand-old party a courageous move. He further said there are discussions within the party that says people will vote the party to power only when they get bored. 

“I had spoken to Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi and mentioned Gujarat’s problems. He asked me and I told him. That’s when I was ignored. I decided to leave party not with sadness but courage,” said Patel.

Patel further took a dig at Gujarat unit of Congress and blamed the leader for the downfall of the party. 

He said, “In Gujarat, whether it’s the Patidar community or any other community, they have had to suffer in Congress. Speak the truth in Congress and big leaders will defame you and that is their strategy.” 

“In Gujarat, it’s not only Hardik who is angry with Congress. There are many leaders and legislators in Gujarat who use Congress. Sitting in power and praising the party does not mean that the party can make them the CM,” he added. 

He accused that there are several people running the party. He said, “7-8 people have been running the Congress for 33 years.  Activists like me travel 500-600 km daily. If I go among the people and try to know their situation, the big leaders here try to disrupt this effort by sitting in the AC chambers.” 

While commenting on the speculations of joining Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), he said, “I am not in BJP yet and have not taken any decision to go.”

However, the resignation of Hardik Patel come ahead of the assembly elections is being considered as a big setback for the Congress.
