BJP leader Hardik Patel rallied with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath at Viramgam in Ahmedabad district on Saturday.
By Saurabh Vaktania: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) conducted a grand rally in Gujarat’s Viramgam, ahead of the upcoming Assembly polls. BJP leader Hardik Patel rallied with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath at Viramgam in Ahmedabad district. The public meeting was attended by hundreds and it was noted for the presence of bulldozers during the campaign event.
In an exclusive conversation with India Today, Patel mentioned that the ‘youth were keen on bringing bulldozers’ to the roadshow.
“So I said why not,” he said.
“The bulldozers are now like a weapon of Yogi Adityanath ji. If Viramgam will benefit from bulldozers, then why not? The thing is, if any Tehsil of Gujarat will become more beautiful by bulldozers, then we should use it,” the BJP leader said.
BJP LEADER SPEAKS ABOUT CONGRESS
Speaking about the Congress’ attacks on the BJP’s ‘Sankalp Patra’, MCD polls’ manifesto that were released on Friday, Patel said that the grand old party ‘fooled’ people and they just rolled out poll vows for the sake of doing it. Actually, they did nothing for the public.
“Congress has just fooled people in the name of making Sankalp Patra. For the last seven elections, they have just made Sankalp Patra. What else have they done?” he said.
The development holds relevance as Congress slammed the BJP over his 12-listed poll vows ahead of the Delhi civic body polls. Congress deemed the Sankalp Patra as a balloon of lies and a hoax letter.
PATEL SPEAKS ABOUT UNIFORM CIVIL CODE
The BJP leader also slammed AIMIM chief Asaddudin Owaisi for opposing the Uniform Civil Code (UCC). He said that Owaisi always contradicted the BJP and that the UCC would benefit ‘all’.
“Owaisi always opposes all decisions made by the Indian government. He always opposes the BJP, but let me tell you that the UCC will be implemented and all will benefit from it,” Patel said.
He said that the Congress government instigated people to incite riots in Gujarat but the BJP curtailed it.
“Earlier, the Congress instigated riots in Gujarat. The BJP took strong action against rioting. Even the Supreme Court gave clean chit (to then Gujarat CM Narendra Modi in the 2002 riots case),” Patel said.
PATEL SPEAKS ABOUT BHARAT JODO YATRA
“In Bharat Jodo Yatra, you bring a woman who did not allow people of Gujarat to get Maa Narmada water, how is it Bharat Jodo Yatra,” Patel said. The observation holds relevance as Rahul Gandhi was joined by social activist Medha Patkar in his yatra. PM Modi had taken note of the development and said during a rally in Gujarat, “You walked with those who opposed Narmada dam.”
Patel said that people of Gujarat are aware that the AAP refused to accept ‘Brahma Vishnu and Mahesh’ as their God.
“People of Gujarat knows they are anti-Gujarati party,” Hardik Patel said.
Patel who was face of Patidar agitation of 2015, first joined Congress and later this year joined BJP. Hardik for the first time, is contesting elections from Viramgam seat.
Several bulldozers were seen across an almost 2 km long roadshow on the narrow streets of Viramgam and in the presence UP CM Yogi Adityanath.
