Ahmedabad. If the BJP talks about a ‘double-engine’ government, then their new election face Hardik Petal talks a step ahead of them. Hardik talks about ‘triple-engine’ government. He says that why only the state and central government, rather, the government of the assembly constituencies i.e. grassroot level leaders should also be involved in this. For development, voters should have faith in BJP.
In a special conversation with News18, Hardik Patel said that the entire Patidar community is with the BJP in this Gujarat assembly elections. It was split in the year 2017. But, this time everyone is with BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Regarding Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party, which is looking for land in Gujarat, Hardik says that AAP will not get any support at the ground level. There is no influence of third party in Gujarat. It is election time. Every party has the right to contest elections and the public has the right to listen to them. But, it does not mean that this public will turn into votes.
Every caste vote for BJP- Patel
He said that elections in Gujarat do not mean only the votes of the Patel community. Every caste is expressing its faith in BJP. This belief is of development and far-sightedness. BJP, especially PM Narendra Modi has a dream for the country. Why will the public go with that party which does not have any dream or plan for the country? When PM Modi became the CM from Gujarat, he did politics with a dream and a plan and when he became the PM, he moved forward with the same dream. This is the reason why people like them.
My full focus is on development – Hardik
‘He will be the youngest MLA in the Gujarat Assembly,’ Hardik says on this question that his entire focus will be on the development of Virangam assembly constituency. There is a Congress MLA here for the last ten years and there has been no development in this area. When I say ‘triple engine,’ it means involving leaders from all levels of the ruling party, including the central and state governments. The circumstances were different when I entered politics. I realized that he was wrong. Congress was against the pride and identity of Gujarat. Today I am standing with PM Modi to fight for Gujarat’s identity.
