Former Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader Hardik Patel, who eventually joined the Congress party but failed to contest the Lok Sabha elections in the absence of a go-ahead from the court, has now been rewarded with a major responsibility in the party’s Gujarat unit.

Hardik Patel was on Saturday appointed as the working president of the Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee. His appointment has been cleared by Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

Notably, Hardik Patel has remained a vocal critic of the BJP government in the Centre and the state. He is also known for issuing controversial statements. Just before the Rajya Sabha elections last month when the Congress and BJP were engaged in a bitter battle to secure the numbers, the youth leader had said that the Congress MLAs who defected to BJP should be beaten with slippers for cheating with the voters for personal interests.

Apart from the appointment of Hardik Patel, the All India Congress Committee (AICC) has also made appointments of District Congress Committee presidents for Anand, Surat, and Devbhumi Dwarka. While Mahendra Parmar has been appointed for Anand, Yasin Gajjan has been appointed for Devbhumi Dwarka. Anand Chaudhary has been appointed for Surat.

As soon as the news of the appointment went viral, congratulatory messages started pouring in for Hardik Patel.
