Congress, enthused by the response to the public meetings of Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi and tremendous media attention to the social media posts of Rahul Gandhi, has now extended invitation to the influential Patidar leader Hardik Patel.
Gujarat Congress President Bharat Solanki made the formal invitation through his social media Twitter account.
But Hardik Patel refused to join in even as he admitted the need for uniting against ruling BJP.
He said that this election is not mere contest between Congress and BJP but for the larger interest of Gujaratis.
Meanwhile, suspense over when the Gujarat election will be announced has yet not been cleared. The issue has nonetheless become political one.>
