Congress had reasons to celebrate as a prominent Gujarat patidar leader Hardik Patel joined in party in presence of Rahul Gandhi.
Hardik Patel shot to fame by spearheading a quota stir in Gujarat.
Upon joining, Hardik Patel stated that Mahatma Gandhi started Dandi March this day and that he is joining in the same party today.
Hardik Patel, well into his twenties, had last week made his intention to contest Lok Sabha elections from Gujarat’s Jamnagar constituency.
Targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Mr Patel said when the Congress decided to postpone its rally,
earlier scheduled for February 28, following the terror attack in Pulwama last month, the PM was busy addressing gatherings across the country.
The BJP had won all 26 Lok Sabha seats in the previous elections.
