According to reports, Hardik Patel, who is leading the fight of Patel community for reservation under OBC quota, said that he will support the Congress party in the upcoming Assembly Elections in Gujarat if the party will listen to their demands including reservation and others.

Recently, Patidar leader Hardik Patel agreed to join hands with the grand old party on conditions that Rahul Gandhi should first lay out the reservation issue and this is being seen as a sign of contradiction by the BJP. However, Hardik Patel now issuing an ultimatum to the Congress party over its stand on the reservation issue will certainly generate more political ripples in poll-bound Gujarat. The deputy CM further said, "Congress is trying to mislead Patidars by promising 20% EBC reservation". Ubed is a practicing lawyer in Surat while Kasim worked as a laboratory technician with Sardar Patel heart hospital at Ankleshwar.

The Minority Affairs Minister said that the NDA government has adopted a zero tolerance policy against terrorism and hit out at Congress leadership for defending Patel.

Similarly, chief minister Vijay Rupani had on Friday sought to find "links" between arrested alleged ISIS terror suspects from Gujarat earlier this week with senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel. "They were well-prepared with passports and visas to flee overseas", Rupani claimed. "We also want Patel to resign as Rajya Sabha MP", Rupani claimed.

In a series of tweets, Ahmed Patel too denied the allegations made by Vijay Rupani, terming them "completely baseless". "My party and I appreciate the efforts to nab the two terrorists".
