Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India], Oct 24 (ANI): The newly inducted member of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Reshma Patel alleged that members of Congress and Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) obstructed her press conference, which was supposed to begin at a venue in Ahmedabed on Monday.
"I was holding a talk in a peaceful manner, when there come five-six Congress agents started shouting slogans of 'Jai Sardar', and told whole of Gujarat that they are protesting. But we will not be afraid of them," she told reporters here.
Reshma alleged that the Congress Party buys agitators and gets them to stage protests.
The press conference, Reshma said, was an attempt to "aware public about Hardik Patel."
"He is not a God that whatever he says has to be taken for the truth. Whomever he labels as traitor or innocent need not necessarily be so," Patel said.
Hours after Narendra Patel was welcomed into BJP, he appeared in a press conference with wads of cash and said he was offered Rs one crore and given Rs 10 lakh as token money by BJP, to switch over to the ruling party in poll-bound Gujarat. (ANI)
