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

Asserting that the Government would be holding a full-fledged winter session of the Parliament later, Jaitley said, "We do not know about our opponents, we have a lot of stake in the election in Gujarat". The law of the land as laid down by the Supreme Court is very clear.

With Hardik extending his support to the Congress, the party has been able to rope in three young caste group leaders in the state whose emergence on Gujarats political firmament had roots in agitations. On the other side, Kapil Sibal just said that Congress received a proposal from PAAS. Patel, while addressing the media in Ahmedabad, said the party will introduce a bill in the Gujarat Assembly for reservation, if they win the forthcoming elections.

"Their leaders have been making such statements which yet again reflected when someone said I will cut fingers". With dissent in the rank and file of PASS leaders going viral since release of first list of 77 Congress nominees late on Sunday evening, PASS leader Hardik Patel postponed the proposed rally in Rajkot on Monday and also cancelled his press conference scheduled in Ahmedabad on Tuesday. "BJP has always used Patidars for votes". He further clarified that PAAS "never asked for any ticket" and also, there was no conflict within PAAS. Other Backward Class (OBC) leader Alpesh Thakor, who opposed the Patidar protests, has joined the Congress while Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani has pledged to campaign against the BJP. Declaring his "direct and indirect" support to Congress, the PAAS convener said the party has assured "quota under Article 31 (C) of the Constitution which guarantees that it will be kept outside the purview of the judiciary". Last week, it was reaffirmed that the 50 per cent reservation cap can not be breached. "The Congress-Hardik club is one of mutual deception". The opposition party (Congress) had accepted its demand for reservation for the Patel community, he said.

He added that in elections, only those promises should be made to each other and the public that could be implemented, otherwise "you deceive your own constituents".
