Gujarat Congress leaders to meet patidar leaders today to decide on reservation issue


As a precursor to a possible joint show of strength by Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi and Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) convener Hardik Patel in Surat later this week, representatives of PAAS will meet with Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee office bearers on Monday afternoon to discuss the Patidar reservation issue.

A day before, Hardik Patel, the feisty 24-year-old Patidar leader had warned the Congress to come clear with its stand on reservation issue, if the party wants him to support them in the upcoming Assembly election.

GPCC President Bharatsinh Solanki and other leaders are expected to meet the PAAS representatives and let them know of the party’s plans on the Patidar reservation issue.
