Ahmedabad(Gujarat): Patidar leader Narendra Patel, a close aide of Hardik Patel, on Sunday alleged that he was offered Rs 1 crore to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)

Narendra Patel also claimed that he had already received Rs. 10 lakh as token money.

Flashing the wads of notes in a press conference, he alleged that, "Varun Patel took me to a meeting where it was discussed that I will be given Rs 1 crore. In the meeting, they told me to keep Rs. 10 lakh and the rest money will be given to me later."

Varun Patel has rejected Patel's allegations and poked holes in his claims.

Varun said," He should have conducted the press conference after taking Rs 1 crore rather than 10 lakh."

Varun criticised the Congress party and said "Since the Patidar community is once again supporting BJP, the Congress is agitated and playing games." (ANI)
