BJP's OBC commission pitch to counter Congress in Gujarat, Karnataka

BJP's OBC commission pitch to counter Congress in Gujarat, Karnataka

Earlier in the day, Congress extended invitation to caste-based leaders including Patidar leader Hardik Patel to jointly contest the Gujarat elections. He told reporters after the meeting that Rahul would take part in their rally to be held on October 23.

All roads lead to election-bound Gujarat in the coming days, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi set to visit his home state on Sunday for the third time this month and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi following suit a few days later.

The Election Commission is yet to announce the date for the Gujarat polls.

Thakor, accompanied by Congress general secretary in-charge of Gujarat Ashok Gehlot and state party chief Bharatsinh Solanki, met Gandhi at his residence in New Delhi this evening.

"If Hardik Patel wants to contest elections in future, the Congress is ready to give him ticket". According to Deccan Chronicle, Vasava had supported Congress in the Rajya Sabha elections held in August.

According to police, the suspect was captured travelling by bicycle a few kilometres south of where the attacks took place. Police chief Hubertus Andrae said that investigators had ruled out terrorism or religion as a motive for the attack .

The meeting at Rahul's residence was also attended by Ashok Gehlot who is now in-charge of the Congress party's election preparedness in Gujarat and state Congress unit chief Bharat Singh Solanki.

Meanwhile, the move gains significance as the Congress and the BJP have been trying woo Patidars ahead of polls.NYOOOZ TV Videos - Dedicated to bringing you the latest and best in politics, sports, current affairs and entertainment world.

However, having said that, it is also clear that Congress is acquiring great support from the OBC community and the Dalit. Technically, Hardik Patel can not contest elections as he is underage. The two leaders were part of Hardik Patel-led Patidar quota agitation and remained critical of the ruling BJP during the stir.

Congress managers claimed Hardik had agreed to lend tactical support to them without entering into a formal pact. The Congress also invited like-minded parties and leaders including Aam Aadmi Party and Chhotu Vasava, a tribal deader and JD (U) MLA close to Sharad Yadav. The proposed front could rattle the BJP as all these three leaders represent three different powerful communities - Patidar, OBC and Dalit.
