Gujarat Congress official Raghu Sharma hits out at Hardik Patel

On the eve of former Congressman Hardik Patel joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Gujarat Congress official and former Rajasthan minister Raghu Sharma on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on the Patidar leader , saying Patel’s rampant statements against him showed his true character. .

In a recent interview, Patel had claimed that Sharma once said that Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot had ruined everything in the desert state and the Congress would not even get 15 seats in the upcoming assembly elections.

Sharma said: “Congress made Patel a star activist in recent Assembly polls in five states, where he was seen criticizing Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and the BJP. Now he has suddenly started to curse Rahul Gandhi. It shows his true nature,” Sharma said.

Sharma added that Patel needs to understand that politics is not a business.

“It’s a path of dedication. He (Patel) makes rampant statements against me and our leader Rahul Gandhi after he left the party. It reflects his character,” he said.

Sharma, Gujarat Affairs Officer at AICC, also questioned Patel’s decision to join the BJP and the “withdrawal of cases” filed against him during Patidar’s turmoil in Gujarat, and alleged that the young leader was in constant contact with the BJP. and the senior leadership of Congress was aware of this.
