Amidst speculations that Patidar leader Hardik Patel met Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi to tie up for election in the state of Gujarat, the Patidar leader Hardik Patel on Monday called the Congress a “chor” (thief).
He said that ruling Bharatiya Janata Party is a “mahachor” (super thief) and that he can support the grand old party to be able to defeat the saffron outfit in Gujarat, where the crucial assembly elections are due later this year.
“But have patience. Do not support (Congress) just now,” Patel said addressing a public rally at Mandal in north Gujarat, where he reached a couple of hours late on Monday night.
He also admitted he was present at a luxury hotel in Ahmedabad at the same time when the Congress’ vice president Rahul Gandhi checked into the premises but said he did not meet him amid swirling speculations they spoke to each other.>
