Hardik Patel informed about the resignation on Twitter. He wrote, “Today, I have mustered the courage to resign from all posts as well as the primary membership of the party. I believe that all my supporters and the people of Gujarat will stand by my decision. I also believe that following this decision, I will be able to work positively for Gujarat.”
Hardik Patel further said, “Despite several attempts to steer the Congress in the right direction, the party has constantly been working against the interests of my country and our society. Hence, I wish to draw your attention to some very important subjects.”
He added, “The youth of the country wants a strong and capable leadeship. Over the last three years, I have found that the Congress party and its leadership both at centre and state level have been reduced to merely opposing everything, whereas the people always seek an alternative that thinks for their future and is capable of taking India ahead.”
Hardik Patel did not directly name the Modi government or the BJP, but in his resignation, the Patidar leader wrote, “Be it in the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, revocation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, implementation of GST – India wanted solutions for these problems for a long time and Congress only played the role of a roadblock and was always only obstructive. When it came to issues in India, Gujarat, and my Patidar community – Congress’ only stand was to oppose what Govt of India led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji did!”
