Election campaign has started in Gujarat for the assembly elections to be held at the end of next year. Like every time, this time also different parties have started preparing to bring the majority Patidar community of the state in their side. On Sunday, a meeting of the heads of the Patidar society was also held at Khodaldham in Kagwad, in which it has been said that the next Chief Minister should be a Patidar.
The Aam Aadmi Party has also become active regarding this and it is also getting information that ‘AAP’ is preparing to make Hardik Patel its face to bring the Patidars in its side. In such a situation, it will not be a surprise for Hardik Patel to leave Congress and join AAP.
Hardik Patel is not much questioned in Congress
Hardik, who is considered a young and aggressive leader of the Patidar reservation movement, is currently the working president of Gujarat Congress. However, he did not achieve anything after joining the Congress. Many Congressmen consider Hardik to be the reason for the clean sweep of the Congress in the civic elections. This became a matter of concern for the Patidar community and Hardik. Patidar leaders also believe that BJP no longer gives special importance to them. Due to all these things, there is talk of Hardik joining you.
Strategy to surround BJP-Congress by making Hardik the face
Patidars helped AAP win 27 seats in Surat in the civic polls last year, but Patidars believe they must have a bigger face in their society. Gopal Italia, another big leader of Patidar reservation has joined AAP, but many leaders of Patidar society do not consider him effective. In such a situation, the Patidar leaders have started making a strategy to surround the BJP and Congress by making Hardik their leader.
AAP’s strategy to include aggressive youth
In the local body elections held in Gujarat, AAP has got a big success in Surat and it has replaced the Congress in the opposition. AAP had formed an organization to contest the 2017 assembly elections, but it was not successful. Taking a lesson from this, the core committee of AAP decided that by including active and aggressive youth in the party, they should be made their face. Due to this, Gopal Italia was made the state president before the civic elections and AAP also got success in Surat and now it is preparing to bring Patidar reservation leader Hardik Patel in its court.
