We accept formula of Congress, more than 50 percent reservation likely: Hardik Patel

Just few days before Gujarat Assembly elections, quota spearhead Hardik Patel while hitting Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday said that the Congress has accepted Patidar leader's demand for reservation.

"We accept formula of Congress," Hardik Patel said.

"Congress will bring in a bill (on reservation) when they come in power in Gujarat," Hardik Patel said during a press conference.

"We are not openly extending support to Congress, but we will fight BJP. So directly or indirectly, there will be support to Congress," Hardik Patel said and added, "After coming to power, more than 50 % reservation may be given."

"Fight against BJP is necessary. Our conveners are being offered Rs 50 lakh to break away with PAAS," he said.

I have been called an 'agent'. Main janta ka agent huun. I won't be contesting elections for the next 2.5 years. BJP spending Rs 200-3300 crores to field independent candidates so that they don't join Congress," Hardik Patel alleged.

"We never asked for any ticket. Also, there is no conflict within PAAS," Patel clarified.

"We have never appealed to anyone to vote for Congress, but since they are talking about our rights, we leave it on people to decide," Hardik Patel further said.

"I am not joining any party," Hardik Patel made it clear during the press conference.
