Congress vice-president, Rahul Gandhi on Monday took on the ruling party saying, Gujarat is priceless and can never be bought, a day after Patidar leader from north Gujarat, Narendra Patel alleged that the BJP had tried to buy him.
“Gujarat is priceless. It has never been bought. It can never be bought. It will never be bought,” Gandhi said in a tweet.
Narendra Patel had alleged that Patidar leader Varun Patel, who has joined the BJP on Saturday evening, took him to meet Gujarat BJP president, Jitubhai Vaghani and other leaders on Sunday. He said they offered him Rs 1 crore to join the BJP.
Patel said he was handed over a bag of Rs 10 lakh cash as token and promised he would be paid Rs 90 lakh later. Patel is the convenor of North Gujarat, Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS), of Hardik Patel.
