'My position in Congress is that of a new groom forced into nasbandi, says' Hardik Patel upset with party

Ahmedabad/IBNS: Ahead of the Gujarat assembly elections, the Congress house is once again divided with its state working president Hardik Patel publicly lashing out against his bosses.

Hardik Patel, who was inducted into the Congress by Rahul Gandhi just before the 2017 Gujarat election, exposed the internal turmoil in the grand old party as he accused the leadership of sidelining him.

He alleged that he is not invited to any meeting of the state Congress unit and he is never consulted before decisions.

"My position in the party is that of a new groom who has been made to undergo nasbandi (vasectomy)," he was quoted as telling the Indian Express.

The Patidar leader is also believed to be upset at the way the party has handled the induction of another leader of the community, Naresh Patel.

"The talk doing the rounds on the induction of Naresh Patel in the Congress is insulting for the entire community. It has been over two months now. Why has no decision been taken yet? The Congress high command or local leadership should take a quick decision about Naresh Patel's induction," he said.

His comments can be deeply troubling for Congress ahead of the polls in which the party is in a direct fight with the ruling BJP.

Elections in Gujarat, the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, are due in December.
