Hardik Patel joins BJPHardik Patel, who was the working president of the Congress in Gujarat, will join the BJP today. Before joining the BJP, he compared the work of Prime Minister Modi to Bhagirathi in a tweet. Hardik Patel tweeted, “With the spirit of national interest, state interest, public interest and social interest, I am going to start a new chapter from today. Hardik Patel will arrive at the BJP office at 11 a.m. and will join the BJP, according to sources.

It is noteworthy that Hardik Patel had resigned from the Congress party due to factionalism in the Congress party and being ignored by the party high command. Ever since he left the Congress party, there has been speculation that Hardik Patel may join the BJP. In 2015, 28-year-old Hardik Patel launched a movement demanding reservation for the Patidar community. The movement, led by Hardik Patel, turned violent. The then BJP government in Gujarat had registered cases against Hardik Patel on several charges including mutiny.

Before Hardik Patel joined the BJP, large posters were put up in Ahmedabad, Patnagar and Gandhinagar, with slogans like “Hard Patriot” and “Harda Samrat” written for Hardik Patel.
