Gujarat polls: Congress has accepted our decisions, says Patidar leader Hardik Patel

Hardik had kept the Congress on the edge after postponing his media interaction twice in the last few days.

Solanki is alleged to have played spoil-sport to the pact between the two outfits. Also, the existing 49% reservation for scheduled castes and tribes as well as other backward classes will not be tinkered with, Patel said.

Hardik Patel accused the BJP of horse-trading in the build up to the 2017 Gujarat Assembly Election.

In a press conference in Ahmedabad, the firebrand Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader said Congress has agreed to give Patidars reservations under section 31 and provisions of section 46.

Later in the night, he informed that the rally has been cancelled.

Patel, while addressing the media at Ahmedabad in Gujarat, said the party will introduce a bill in the Gujarat Assembly for the reservation, if they win the forthcoming elections. Meanwhile, PASS also seems heading for a vertical split with a group charging Banmbhaniya of hobnobbing with the BJP and the NCP. "The law of the land is very clear and that is laid down by the Supreme Court and only last week in the Rajasthan case it has been re-affirmed that the 50 per cent cap can not be increased". Patel claimed the grand old party has agreed to provide reservations to Patels in jobs and college admissions if voted to power. There is no disagreement between the Congress and Patidar leaders. "We are all fighting for one cause: reservation for the community", he asserted.

Mr. Patel, however, refrained from pledging his support to Congress. The bone of contention was reported to be seat sharing. We had just asked them to give tickets to good candidates. He further clarified that PAAS "never asked for any ticket" and also, there was no conflict within PAAS. "We will not protest against him as we need good and honest leaders in power".

Clarifying that he wasn't joining the Congress, Patel said the PAAS would ensure the defeat of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which has "victimised" the Patidar community in the state. "My issue was and is reservation, reservation, reservation".
