Will campaign against BJP in MP, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh: Hardik
Bhopal: Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik Patel on Monday said here that he would campaign against the ruling BJP in the coming Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh.
After OBC leader and newly-elected Congress MLA Alpesh Thakore, Patel is another leader from Gujarat who has said he would play an active role in Madhya Pradesh politics. Thakore, earlier this week, had said he would unite OBCs in the state against the ruling party.
"I will be active in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, and campaign against the ruling BJP. I will visit MP many times. If someone has a problem with that, let them try and stop me," Patel said, speaking to reporters here.
He was here to attend a program organised by the Patidar community. "I don't care if someone doesn't like my visits to Madhya Pradesh. I will continue to talk about farmers, employment to the youth and good education here. "Attempts were made to stop me from coming to Madhya Pradesh. I was told don't go there, or cases would be filed against you. They say my arrival would divide the society.
