"When the election is coming up, he (Modi) remembered RSS and Mohan Bhagwat. This clearly shows that, for him, situation in Surat (in the state) is very tough and that's why he has rushed there (to Nagpur) to meet them," Patel told reporters on arrival for his 'Parivartan Yatra' in the city.
Patel, who recently left BJP after being dissatisfied with the functioning of Modi, formed a new political outfit, Gujarat Parivartan Party, with other dissident BJP leaders. He has embarked upon the 'Parivartan Yatra' across the state. The GPP president asked why for the past so many years Modi never remembered Nagpur or RSS?
When the state is geared for Assembly elections, he suddenly remembered RSS, he alleged. Patel is scheduled to take out his yatra in Varachha road, Katargaam, Rander and Karanj areas in Surat which have significant population of traders from Saurashtra region.
