HAVING seen spate of defeats at the hands of the ruling BJP under the influence of Modi charisma right from Assam to Uttarakhand and confronting being on a sort of brink of disaster situation the Nehru Gandhi scion and the likely president of the oldest party of the country that ruled Inda for 60 years or more, Rahul Gandhi does not want to take any further risk in Gujarat and therefore is ready to compromise on any formula and with any political force with any preconditions that can pose a direct and formidable challenge to the ruling BJP led NDA and its chief prime minister Narendra Modi and his cohorts.
The desperate efforts of Congress party under Rahul’s wishes and instructions to bring into Congress’s fold the popular leader of the patidar community Hardik Patel ( the community that constitutes 14% votes ) and give them the assurance of complete reservation if their party comes to power in Gujarat and thereafter in Delhi in 2019 unambiguously speaks of the fact that the Congress Party is either openly befooling the patidar community of Gujarat or Hardik Patel and the community itself is deliberately prepared to be misguided on this count as it has no option but to oppose the BJP in the state.
The crux of the matter is both the Congress as well as the Patidar leader Hardik Patel are well aware that reservation to Patidars is not constitutionally affordable even if they come to power because while as per the constitutional obligation reservation in any state of the country can’t exceed the limit of 49% and Gujarat has already fulfilled that limit.
Moreover if by chance the Congress comes to power in the state and even after getting it passed from the state assembly if it is send to the parliament to get it ratified by both the houses, will the BJP and NDA pass it? The answer is an obvious no. Now the Congress has a logic and it has also assured the patidar leader that even if the centre does not pass it, the Congress will implement it in 2019 after assuming power at the centre.
Now again, its a hypocritical answer as how can the Congress be so sure that they are likely to come to power in 2019 ? The point is how can both these parties, the Congress and Patidars’ leader Hardik misguide the entire community? But this is true as Hardik Patel and Congress are now in a fix and they have no option but to stand united to fight BJP relentlessly. The patidars are furious against BJP as they think it has betrayed and befooled them during the last 19 years and did nothing for their welfare but always sought their overwhelming support to enjoy power.
They are also deadly against the ruling party for bringing anti small business men act the GST and badly lathicharged and injured the patidar protestors demanding reservations in jobs. The patidar leader also question the dubious anti patidar community intentions of the state and centrally ruled BJP led NDA governments saying that had they been serious and committed about reservation to patidar in jobs they could have get it passed in Assembly and then sent to parliament for ratification from both houses, to be finally signed by the president who has also been elected at their behest.
By intentionally ignoring our community and physically thrashing us and our leader Hardik Patel lacing him with umpteen serious cases the BJP has committed a grave sin for which it will have to suffer badly. We and Congress will fight it out of the state adds Hardik.
