New Delhi: Hardik Patel has finally resigned from the Congress party today. Before the Gujarat assembly elections, this is being considered a major setback for the Congress. While resigning from the Congress, Hardik Patel has fiercely attacked the Congress party. Hardik had been angry with Congress leaders for some time and speculations about him leaving the party were already being made.
Hardik Patel took to Twitter to inform about his resignation. He posted the resignation letter and said in Hindi, ” Today, after gathering a lot of courage I have resigned from the post of Congress Party and primary membership of the party. I am sure that my decision will be welcomed by all my colleagues and the people of Gujarat. I believe that after this step of mine, I will be able to work really positively for Gujarat in the future.”
आज मैं हिम्मत करके कांग्रेस पार्टी के पद और पार्टी की प्राथमिक सदस्यता से इस्तीफा देता हूँ। मुझे विश्वास है कि मेरे इस निर्णय का स्वागत मेरा हर साथी और गुजरात की जनता करेगी। मैं मानता हूं कि मेरे इस कदम के बाद मैं भविष्य में गुजरात के लिए सच में सकारात्मक रूप से कार्य कर पाऊँगा। pic.twitter.com/MG32gjrMiY
