AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday took a swipe at senior Congress leaders and the celebration’s ‘unofficial president’ after Hardik Patel, the working president of the state unit, stop the put up and the celebration simply months earlier than the meeting election. Owaisi declared that even people inside the Congress ‘do not have any confidence’ within the celebration.
“Their (the Congress’) people are leaving. Their (Gujarat) working president (Hardik Patel) has no confidence in the unofficial president. He left,” Owaisi was quoted by information company ANI.
“Congress ruled Maharashtra for 15 years but now the party has slipped to third position (the party holds the fewest seats in the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance in power). There used to be (late) Sheila Dikshit’s government but now Congress is nowhere to be seen in Delhi. The party lost in Kerala (in last year’s assembly election) as well.”
Hardik Patel as we speak stop as working president of the Congress’ Gujarat unit and left the celebration.
He cited detachment from ‘actual points’ of the people for his resolution, saying, “Lack of seriousness about all issues is a major problem with the Congress party’s senior leadership”.
“Whenever our country faced challenges, and when the Congress needed leadership, Congress leaders were enjoying abroad! Senior leaders behave in a way like they hate Gujarat and Gujaratis. How in the world can Congress then expect that the people of Gujarat will see them as an alternative to lead our state?” Patel stated in his resignation letter.
Patel – who rose to prominence because the chief of the 2015 Patidar motion for reservation – stated that in his three years within the celebration, he discovered the Congress and its management, each on the centre and state, had been lowered to merely opposing the whole lot.
Hardik Patel’s resignation comes as Gujarat – prime minister Narendra Modi’s dwelling state – is ready to go to polls in December.
