Arvind Kejriwal is scheduled to visit Gujarat on October 16 and he has already been supporting the enemy of his enemy. Gujarat’s Patidar leader, Hardik Patel has gone all out in attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the surgical strikes, on the social media platform Twitter. Both Kejriwal and Hardik are well-known for their opposing views than that of PM Narendra Modi and the government, and their union, however, virtual seems to be targeting the assembly polls scheduled in Gujarat in 2017. Delhi CM Kejriwal has been retweeting the tweets of Patel, which have been marked for the criticism of the Indian Prime Minister. It’s still unknown whether there will be any alliance of Kejriwal and Patel when it comes to Gujarat though the speculations are rife.
Hardik Patel today tweeted, “BJP is responsible for the Hitler-esque politics in Gujarat which is the worst in Indian history. It is a sour truth yet is the truth.” Kejriwal retweeted is, with the caption. “So true.” Earlier also Patel had written a tweet criticising PM Modi for taking credit for the surgical strikes across LoC when it should be the Indian Army who should take credit. This came after the recent BJP-AAP problems regarding the strikes and its proof. Patel alleged that BJP and Narendra Modi have been using the armed forces for political gain. Kejriwal had also retweeted another tweet by Patel which had to with the employment scene in Gujarat. He had said that even after seven ‘Vibrant summits’ in Gujarat, 35 lakh people are still unemployed. He wrote that 7 percent trade and 31 percent factories are closed.
With Kejriwal eyeing to contest the assembly elections and Patel wanting a quota for the Patidar community, this tie-up can be very amusing.
