Hardik Patel, Patidar quota leader to be Shiv Sena's face in Gujarat assembly polls Featured

Written by  Feb 07, 2017

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday stated that in Gujarat Assembly polls, Patidar quota leader, Hardik Patel will be his party’s face even as he asserted the alliance with BJP in Maharashtra is on “notice period”.

The statement came after Patel's visit at Thakeray's residence Mathoshree.

Shiv Sena has been trying to woo the Gujrati community in its fight against the BJP in Mumbai city corporation elections; Patel’s visit to Thackeray is quite significant for the cause.

“Our friendship with Hardik Patel will be lasting. Until the other person breaks relations with us, we do not leave their side. If needed, we will fight Gujarat Assembly polls as well and Hardik will be our face,” Thackeray stated while addressing a joint press conference with Hardik Patel.

Giving indications that the Sena is ready to pull out of the Maharashtra government partnership with BJP, Thackeray said the government is on a “notice period” as on now. He said, “Like the Code of Conduct is for a certain period, the government too is on a notice period and when the period ends will be known by all soon.”

Patel visited Matoshree to pay his respects to the founder of Shiv Sena, Balasaheb Thakeray, Sena and Hardik are together in the fight for justice, stated by Sena cheif Udhav Thakeray.

Maharashtra is a land of warriors and that the current struggle is for a social change and to deliver justice to people, said Patel, who had taken on the BJP government in Gujarat by spearheading a stir demanding quota for the Patidar community.

“I have always been inspired by Balasaheb’s thoughts.  His thoughts are inspiration for the youth. Be it Gujarati or Marathi all are my friends. Meeting anyone cannot be a political issue. One should be in contact with ‘good’ people,” Patel said.

Thackeray stated that the decision to fight the upcoming civic polls without BJP was taken as there were “no heartfelt feelings” to fight in an alliance with BJP.
