Modi's return to power will result in'President's rule: Hardik Patel

Patidar leader Hardik Patel on Friday said that he would come to West Bengal next year to campaign for Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in the 2019 Lok Sabha general elections.

On Friday, bonhomie between the Patidar community leader, Hardik Patel, and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee was on full display during a meeting in Kolkata where the two leaders exchanged their views on future of politics in the country and possibility of a political alliance between them. She taught me the importance of alertness, a little attitude and behaviour with the mass.

Criticising Narendra Modi for remaining silent on the important issues, Hardik Patel said he wants to see someone as the Prime Minister of the country who will speak on core issues like education, employment, agriculture, health and security or safety of the country and not someone who spends 90 minutes criticising the opposition in the Parliament. Today, I had a meeting with the West Bengal chief minister and Lady Gandhi Mamata Banerjee. But I told her I do not have political aspiration now. "I have asked him to join politics and work for the good of the common man". "It will be the right choice if he does".

Asked if he would back Mamata for a larger national role around the Lok Sabha polls, Patel said it should be done "without hesitation". "She is wise, she is a veteran in popular struggle.She should be promoted and brought to the fore", according to The Telegraph.

Patel has also received an open invitation from Mamata to join the Trinamool Congress any time he is looking to join one.

Mr Patel elaborated, "I learnt a lot from her". "I said I will give her proposal a serious thought if I decide to join active politics", said Patel. "I will come here", he said. She stressed to take all alongwith to move ahead. "She could impart these lessons easily because she started her political career during her college-days and that too with heavyweight leaders".
