Even as exit polls predict an easy victory for the ruling BJP in Gujarat, the road to power might turn out to be anything but smooth for the party. Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader Hardik Patel has now declared that if the BJP comes to power, the reservation agitation will continue with greater intensity. "We have not stopped the agitation. It will not be stopped until our goal is achieved. In the event the BJP comes to power, we renew the agitation for reservation with more vigour," said Patel. "Goli maarna hai to maar de, mein jaan deene ko taiyaar hu," said Hardik about his plan to agitate if BJP comes to power. He, however, also insisted that the Congress would win over 100 seats. "There is a lot of anger among the people against the BJP," adding that the Congress formula was acceptable to him and the party would implement it when it came to power. "If the Congress fails to do so, we will continue the agitation against them too," said Hardik. Even before the elections, Hardik held several ...

It's not every day that you find a hardened BJP worker muttering under his breath that his party, which has been ruling Gujarat for the last 22 years, is on a sticky wicket.

How will Cong fulfil Patel quota promise? asks Modi 9.12.2017 Deccan Herald - TOP STORIES RSS FEEDS
Lunawada (Guj), PTI: Questioning the Congress' assurance of reservation to Patidar community in Gujarat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said it will either have to "snatch" the share of SCs, STs and OBCs or is making a "false promise".

PAAS leader claims 'fixing' between Hardik Patel, Congress 9.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Hardik Patels key aide and senior member of Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti Dinesh Bambhania has alleged that the quota agitation spearheads support to the Congress party smacks of some kind of "fixing" between them. Bambhania yesterday said he could not understand why Patel was supporting the Congress party, despite it not clarifying how it would give reservation to the Patidar community if voted to power. "In the poll manifesto, the Congress has not clarified how it would grant us reservation under OBC quota after coming to power in Gujarat. It shows that Congress actually never wanted to give us reservation. Yet, Hardik Patel is doing rallies in Congress favour," he told reporters here. "Though there is no clarity how we will get reservation under OBC quota, Hardik is mum about it. It seems like fixing to me. Our fight was not about bringing a party to power. At least I do not wish to be an agent of a party. Hardik should not politicise the agitation," he added. Hardik is playing into the hands of ...
