Congress, Hardik Patel reach deal on Gujarat special category quota

Congress to give reservation to Patidars: Hardik Patel

Though the deal was brokered by Congress legal eagle Kapil Sibal, he left it to Hardik to make the announcement to the media.

Solanki is alleged to have played spoil-sport to the pact between the two outfits.

He said there is no merit in the offer made by the Congress and accepted by Hardik Patel.

Later in the night, he informed that the rally has been cancelled.




He said that the Congress party will bring in a bill once they come to power in the poll-bound Gujarat. Meanwhile, PASS also seems heading for a vertical split with a group charging Banmbhaniya of hobnobbing with the BJP and the NCP. The law of the land is very clear and that is laid down by the Supreme Court and only last week in the Rajansthan case it has been reaffirmed that the 50 per cent cap can not be breached.

The Patidars have been agitating for reservation in government jobs and education for the past two years under the leadership of PAAS and have been growing increasingly upset with the BJP due to the state government's failure to approve the quota. Other Backward Class (OBC) leader Alpesh Thakor, who opposed the Patidar protests, has joined the Congress while Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani has pledged to campaign against the BJP. "BJP is trying to divide the Patidar community", he said. He added that Congress will have to put this reservation formula with details, in their manifesto. "We have not sought any tickets from the Congress. Dilip Sabva did not inform me about his nomination from Botad seat and he will withdraw his form".

Congress said it would do so with the help of Article 46 and Article 31 (C) of the Indian Constitution, he said. "The Congress-Hardik club is one of mutual deception". He was slated to hold a press conference in Ahmedabad on Tuesday morning to clear his stand over Congress' quota proposal for the Patidars and announce if the community would extend support to the party. We had just asked them to give tickets to good candidates. We have given a suggestion to them and when we suggest something, there is a lot of thinking behind it.
