The Patel quota agitation leader Hardik Patel claimed on Saturday that Vijay Rupani, who has been chosen to replace Anandiben Patel as Gujarat chief minister, was a loyalist of Amit Shah and that all the work in the state will now be carried out on the BJP chief’s orders.

Patel, who has been living in Udaipur after a court ordered him to stay away from Gujarat, accused the BJP government in the state of misdirecting the Patel community and said if Nitin Patel, who has been chosen as Rupani’s deputy, “wants to save his image among the Patel community, he should resign”.

He said that the Patel community has been insulted once again in the state and Shah has started a new type of politics by naming Nitin Patel as the deputy chief minister.

He vowed to continue his agitation for quota in the state.
