The Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader said the Congress will include the extension of reservation benefit to Patidars in its election manifesto.
He said Congress has accepted our issues. They have agreed to give Patidars reservations. We are not openly extending support to Congress, but we will fight BJP. So directly or indirectly, there will be support to Congress report in ANI
“The Congress has agreed to provide reservation to the Patidar community,” Patel told reporters.
The Congress, which has mounted a hectic campaign to dislodge the long-ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah, has been wooing the Patel stir spearhead for quite some time. Elections in Gujarat will be held on 9 and 14 December.
