Congress Gujarat Pradesh President Hardik Patel removes party's name from Twitter bio.

Highlights

  • Hardik Patel removed Congress from his Twitter bio
  • Hardik Patel, Gujarat Congress working president, was unhappy over leadership issues within party
  • Patel recently changed WhatsApp profile picture from Cong tricolour scarf to one with saffron one

Gujarat Congress President Hardik Patel, who has been running upset over leadership issues, on Monday removed party's name from his Twitter bio. The face of the reservation movement of 2016-17 who joined the grand old party in 2019, is the latest in Gujarat to fuel talks of political somersault.

Recently, Patel changed his WhatsApp profile picture from the Congress tricolour scarf to one with a saffron scarf. He even deleted Cogress from his WhatsApp bio.

Even during the Yuva Swabhiman Sammelan at Tapi, where Youth Congress national President B.V. Srinivas was present, Hardik was seen wearing a non-Congress plain white scarf.

Asked about the change in WhatsApp profile picture, Hardik said that everyone changes their DPs every five days, and he also did the same. On the other hand, Hardik has also criticised national Congress leaders on various platforms of late.

Last week, he tweeted, "I am in Congress currently. I hope the central leaders find a way so that I continue to remain in the Congress. There are others who want Hardik to leave the Congress. They want to break my morale."

In a few interviews recently, Hardik had blamed national Congress leaders by saying that he is not getting due respect as Gujarat Congress President, as no one consults him nor gives him any major responsibility.

He recently said in an interview that he considers himself as a 'Hinduvadi' and 'Rambhakt'.
