Congress, Hardik Patel reach deal on Gujarat special category quota

Congress, Hardik Patel reach deal on Gujarat special category quota

The young quota agitation spearhead, who led violent protests in support of the demand that left several people dead in police action, said the promised quota would go beyond the 50 per cent cap set by the Supreme Court for the Scheduled Castes, Schedule Tribes and OBCs. The grand old party is hoping that a deal with Hardik will help them end BJP's 22-year rule in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home turf.

Congress will bring in a bill in the assembly after it comes to power.

"Their leaders have been making such statements which yet again reflected when someone said I will cut fingers".

Hardik Patel, Patidar leader also asserted that Patidar community wants is the right to study and employment. "PAAS leaders are involved in internal infighting over ticket allocation and are opposing the Congress publicly for their personal interests", Sagar Savalia wrote on Facebook.

Mr. Patel, however, refrained from pledging his support to Congress. PASS leader Dinesh Bambhaniya, said to be close to Hardik Patel, had vehemently resented the Congress's first list in which only two of their leaders were given tickets.

Summary: If not, the first nomination papers filed with the mandate will be valid.

"The law of the land is very clear and is laid down by the Supreme Court, and only reaffirmed last week in Rajasthan's case that 50 per cent reservation cap can not be breached".

According to reports, Hardik Patel stated to media that Congress has assured him of going ahead with the reservation sought by the Patidar community if they win the elections. Congress leader Kapil Sibal thanked Hardik for his support but refused to give details of the reservation formula. 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 are very happy that a sanjha morcha (united front) will now fight against the BJP".

He added that in elections, only those promises should be made to each other and the public that could be implemented, otherwise "you deceive your own constituents".
