Mumbai: Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani criticised Hardik Patel for resigning from Congress and said that his exit from the party was ungraceful as the Congress party gave all its support to him.

Mevani, who has been supporting the Congress, is expected to officially join the party before the 2022 Gujarat assembly elections. Patel, 28, had quit the party earlier this week after three years of joining the party.

“You can have differences with the party. But it is inappropriate (for Patel) to say that the Congress is anti-Gujarat or anti-India… The affection that you seem to have developed towards the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) shows that you have somewhere comprised on the ideological front,” Mevani, an Independent legislator from Vadgam, told media persons.

He said the Congress party extended full support to Patel, making him the working president of Gujarat, the post from which Patel had resigned when he left the party.

Patel was also the star campaigner of the Congress in several states where the Congress had contested the recent elections.

“His exit should have been a graceful one, which it was not,” Mevani said.

In 2017, the Congress formed an alliance of Mevani, Patel and OBC leader Alpesh Thakor to take on the BJP in the 2017 assembly elections. Thakor left the party in 2019 and joined the BJP. In the same year, he lost the by-election for the Radhanpur seat, which he had won in 2017.

Patel is believed to be preparing to join the BJP ahead of the Gujarat elections later this year.
