New Delhi (18/05/2022): Gujarat Congress Committee working president Hardik Patel, who resigned from the party on Wednesday took a potshot at the state Congress leadership saying that leaders are more focussed on ensuring that the leaders from Delhi get “chicken sandwich”on time.
He further said that Gujarat Congress leaders are least bothered to address real issues of Gujarat but are more focussed on ensuring that the leaders who come from Delhi in Gujarat get “chicken sandwich”on time.
“Lack of seriousness about all issues is a major problem with the Congress party’s senior leadership. Whenever our country faced challenges and when the Congress needed leadership, Congress leaders were enjoying abroad! Senior leaders behave in a way like they hate Gujarat and Gujaratis. How in the world can Congress then expect that the people of Gujarat will see them as an alternative to lead our state?” said Patel in his resignation letter to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi.
“It is unfortunate that workers like us, who travel 500 – 600 km in our cars in a single day to meet people, get to see those big leaders of Congress in Gujarat who are least bothered to address real issues in Gujarat but are more focussed on ensuring that chicken sandwich for leaders who have come from Delhi is delivered on time!” he said.
“When I joined the Congress I did not know that the hearts and minds of leadership of the Congress are filled with such hatred towards our country India, towards my community and especially towards the youth! Today, I have decided to resign from the primary membership of the party,” he said.
