Hardik dubs Mamata 'lady Gandhi', gets offer to join Trinamool

In response to the question on goal of the meeting, Patel said he was here to seek blessings of Banerjee.

Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik Patel on Saturday said if Narendra Modi-led government wins the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the country would see "President's rule".

"Mamata didi is the other name for simplicity". "But if you ask my personal opinion, I will say she is an intelligent woman who has a history of being a revolutionary leader and she should come forward to be the leader (of opposition parties)", he said after the hour-and-half-long meeting. Patel also invited Banerjee to come to Gujarat; he said Banerjee had accepted the invitation.

According to him, "All have to be united against the one who is trying to divide the nation". Today, I had a meeting with the West Bengal chief minister and Lady Gandhi Mamata Banerjee.

Hitting hard at the opposition he said, I did not see anything wrong as "spread by the oppositions about Kolkata". He is fighting the good fight for the people of Gujarat.

Patidar leader Hardik Patel rose to prominence during the Gujarat elections, with his firm anti-BJP stand at a time when more than half of the states in India are being ruled by the BJP and its allies.

Banerjee described Patel as "like my younger brother".

Mamata has been repeatedly making public statements in favour of a formation where regional political satraps play a big role, winning handsomely in their own backyards and then join forces in Delhi. Along with being political he also sensitive. "She has advised me how one must have a little bit of attitude and how one should speak", he said. "After Indira Gandhi, she has been the epitome of the struggle for the cause of the people", he said.

The pro-reservation movement leader had said during his campaign in the recently-concluded assembly elections that he would decide on joining politics in two years, when he would be eligible to contest polls.
