Nitin said Hardik Patel’s motive was to back struggling Congress in the state and his campaign in the name of reservations to Patidars was a part of it.
He said Congress has been completely exposed before the Assembly elections.
The deputy chief minister said Hardik Patel was speaking like a spiritual guru in his press conference.
Patel said Congress and Hardik Patel described others as imprudent but people know the veracity.
