In the name of reservation, Congress has given a ‘lollipop’ to Hardik.”Nitin even accused the Congress Party of bargaining with Hardik Patel and trying to divide the Patidar community.Meanwhile, clearing the air about ticket distribution, Hardik, “I never asked for any ticket from the Congress party to contest the assembly polls and there is ‘no conflict within the PAAS’. “Our organization will continue to fight against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Gujarat,” he added.The Congress, which has mounted a hectic campaign to dislodge the long-ruling BJP in the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and saffron party chief Amit Shah, has been wooing the Patel stir spearhead for quite some time.(With agency inputs)
