New Delhi: On Thursday, Hardik Patel will join BJP in the presence of Gujarat party president C R Paatil. Ahead of joining BJP, Hardik Patel tweeted he is going to start a new chapter in his life with the national interest. “I will work as a small soldier in the noble service of the nation under the successful leadership of PM Narendra Bhai Modi,” Hardik Patel tweeted.
राष्ट्रहित, प्रदेशहित, जनहित एवं समाज हित की भावनाओं के साथ आज से नए अध्याय का प्रारंभ करने जा रहा हूँ। भारत के यशस्वी प्रधानमंत्री श्री नरेन्द्र भाई मोदी जी के नेतृत्व में चल रहे राष्ट्र सेवा के भगीरथ कार्य में छोटा सा सिपाही बनकर काम करूँगा।

With Gujarat scheduled to go to Assembly elections later this year, the Patidar leader, along with his supporters, is set to join the saffron party on June 2. On May 18, Hardik Patel resigned from the party accusing the senior leadership of the Grand Old Party of disinterest in the real issues of Gujarat. He had joined the Congress in 2019 and was later made the state unit’s working president.
After he quits the party Hardik Patel said, “It is a fact that Congress benefited immensely in the 2017 Assembly polls due to the Patidar quota agitation (led by him). However, I was not given any responsibility even after making me working president. I was not even invited to the key meetings of the party. It never arranged my press conference during the last three years.”
