Gujarat wants to see ‘CD of 23-yr rule, not 23-yr-old youngster

Hardik Patel, the leader of Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti said the people of Gujarat want to see what the BJP has done in 23 years rather than the video of a 23-year-old youth.

Hardik, who had earlier threatened to drop a “bomb” against Bharatiya Janata Party at “prestige rally” at Mansa, the home town of party’s president Amit Shah, however, stuck to the script of hitting out at BJP.

The PAAS, which has been agitating against the government for more than two years over the issue of reservation for the Patidar community, has pledged to oppose the ruling BJP in the coming state assembly elections in December.

Earlier, they had sought the administration’s permission to hold the rally in Mansa, but the same was denied by the Gandhinagar Superintendent of Police.


He said the BJP should not have played the game of CD, as people of Gujarat wanted to see the CD of 23-year rule and not that of a 23-year-old youngster.

“In 2007, they defamed Sanjay Joshi and now it is our turn,” he said repeating his earlier allegations that the CDs were released at the behest of Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and state BJP chief Jitu Vaghani after spending Rs 40 crore.
