Chirag Patel joins BJP

Several former PAAS leaders who were part of Hardik Patel-led quota agitation have joined the BJP. In October, Varun Patel and Reshma Patel joined the BJP.

After joining the BJP, some Patidar leaders alleged that Hardik Patel had become a "Congress agent" and was trying to use the agitation to overthrow the present State government.

The Gujarat Assembly Elections 2017 will be held in two phases on December 9 and 14. The counting of votes will take place on December 18.
