Hardik Patel announces Congress agrees to give reservation to Patidars

Congress gets a shot in the arm in Gujarat after Hardik Patel comes on board

Congress to give reservation to Patidars: Hardik Patel

"We are not openly extending support to Congress, but we will fight the BJP".

However, a nine-judge bench of the Supreme Court had held in 2007 that the insertion of a law in the Ninth Schedule will not save it from being struck down if, on judicial scrutiny, the law is found to be violating fundamental rights.

Patel, while addressing the media at Ahmedabad in Gujarat, said the party will introduce a bill in the Gujarat Assembly for the reservation, if they win the forthcoming elections. There is no disagreement between the Congress and Patidar leaders.

The deputy chief minister said Hardik Patel was speaking like a spiritual guru in his press conference.

The politically influential community has traditionally been a BJP vote bank and Congress has been trying to lure them as the Patidars are disenchanted with the current government.

Apple may be working on an AR headset for 2020
Geoff Stahl , formerly a software manager for games and graphics at Apple , is one of the directors of the "rOS" software group. Apple CEO Tim Cook has told media outlets that he considers AR to be as potentially revolutionary as the smartphone.

Jignesh Mewani, a lawyer-activist who shot into prominence after organising a string of protests against the Una incident where Dalits skinning a dead cow were flogged on the suspicion of slaughtering it, has also indicated his support to the Congress.

However, Patel has told the media that PAAS was not looking for tickets from Congress and rather wanted to focus on the reservation issue. "The Congress has agreed to give Patidars reservations under section 31, and provisions of section 46", he said.

Summary: If not, the first nomination papers filed with the mandate will be valid.

A draft proposal for reservation to Patels has been prepared after consultation between PAAS and the Congress; the formula will not be confined to Patels alone, he said. "The Congress-Hardik club is one of mutual deception". On Tuesday, the Patidar activist said he and his party had never demanded any seats from the Congress for the upcoming Gujarat Assembly Election. The scheduled castes have 7% and the scheduled tribes 15%, making a total of 49%, just under the 50% reservation cap set by the Supreme Court.

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".
