Gujarat polls: Patidars accept Congress' quota formula, but will the courts agree?

Gujarat polls: Patidars accept Congress' quota formula, but will the courts agree?

"We are not openly extending support to Congress, but we will fight the BJP".

However, it remains to be seen how Congress manages to fulfill its promise considering that the Supreme Court in 1992 had set a ceiling of 50% reservation for all communities.

With Congress - Patidar Amanat Arakshan Samiti (PASS) bonhomie going sour following release of candidates' list by the Congress for the Gujarat Assembly polls, the Party high command on Tuesday summoned State party chief Bharat Singh Solanki to Delhi.

He said Congress has been completely exposed before the Assembly elections.

The party will bring in a legislation in the state Assembly on reservations for Patidars, Patel told the media in Ahmedabad.

The Patel leader said there were no differences with the Congress over seat-sharing.

Hardik Patel, Patidar leader also asserted that Patidar community wants is the right to study and employment. On Monday, PAAS supporters ransacked Congress offices in Surat after the party declared its first list of candidates. "We have never asked for any ticket from Congress, neither have we done any deal with Congress", he said.

He said PAAS members who had already filed nominations ceased to be members of the outfit.

Sagar Savalia, who ran the "Vikas Gando Thayo Chhe" (development has gone crazy) campaign against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Gujarat, attacked Hardik Patel for diverting his attention from Patidar reservation to electoral politics.

Recently, the Supreme Court rejected the Rajasthan government's plea to provide reservation to Gujjars which would have otherwise raised the reservation ceiling beyond 50%. "Hardik today claimed that he has received the proposal about reservation from Congress".

Speaking at a media briefing, the union minister said, "The Congress-Hardik club is one of mutual deception".

"Though it is very much clear that reservation quota can not go beyond 50 per cent in any situation, Hardik is trying to misguide the Patidar community with the formula offered by the Congress". Patel, however, denied they had asked for tickets.
