Hardik mentioned that with an aim to fight the BJP, the Patidars will offer support to Congress, directly or indirectly.

He said the cap put by the Supreme Court was just a "suggestion", and there were ways to go beyond the limit set by it.

"Congress party is not a relative, it has talked about a survey on OBC quota".

Congress said it would do so with the help of Article 46 and Article 31 (C) of the Indian Constitution, he said.


Patel, while addressing the media at Ahmedabad in Gujarat, said the party will introduce a bill in the Gujarat Assembly for the reservation, if they win the forthcoming elections.

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

It was only after the Congress accommodated as many as five of the 89 candidates in the first phase of polls that Hardik Patel chose to back Congress.

A draft proposal for reservation to Patels has been prepared after consultation between PAAS and the Congress; the formula will not be confined to Patels alone, he said.


Recently, the Supreme Court rejected the Rajasthan government's plea to provide reservation to Gujjars which would have otherwise raised the reservation ceiling beyond 50%. "In my opinion, this formula of reservation is a big joke", Patel told reporters in Ahmedabad.

Sagar Savalia, who ran the "Vikas Gando Thayo Chhe" (development has gone crazy) campaign against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Gujarat, attacked Hardik Patel for diverting his attention from Patidar reservation to electoral politics.

Sibal, however, held his cards close to chest when asked about the details of the formula the Congress and the Patel- led PAAS had worked out, adding the related issues would be decided later. We thank him that they (PAAS) have joined us with an ideology to contest the election by coming together. "You can deceive the people and yourself, but in elections only those promises can be made to each other and the public that can be implemented".
