Reshma Patel and Varun Patel, close to Hardik Patel join BJP

Updated 22 Oct 2017 08:06 AM

 In a dramatic turn of events in poll-bound Gujarat, quota spearhead Hardik Patel's key aides -Varun Patel and Reshma Patel - on Friday joined the ruling BJP.

The development came hours after state Congress president Bharatsinh Solanki invited Hardik Patel to join hands with the party. Solanki even promised to give an additional 20 per cent reservation to economically backward classes in the state if the Congress is voted to power in the upcoming assembly polls.

Varun and Reshma were among the prominent faces of the Hardik Patel-led Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) and remained critical of the ruling BJP during the agitation.
