BHOPAL (IANS) — Gujarat’s Patidar leader Hardik Patel on Monday said that he didn’t want a certificate on patriotism from those who were pursuing divisive politics in the country.
“All types of things have been said about my Bhopal visit — that it will promote casteism. If talking of the interests of farmers, youths and jobs is casteism, then I will do it. But those who want to do politics of Hindus and Muslims, and want to break this country do not call it casteism, but patriotism. I don’t want a certificate from such people,” Patel told the media here.
Asked if he would campaign in the coming Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh later this year, the Patidar leader said: “There is no harm in doing good work. I will continue to do good work.”
The Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti leader was on a one-day visit to the state capital.
