Gujarat: Congress MLA resigns over infighting, appreciates PM Modi’s quota move, says will benefit Patel community

It is being speculated that the MLA's resignation could affect Congress' chances in the upcoming General Elections. The bypoll election for the seat is likely to be held simultaneously with the Lok Sabha elections.

Congress MLA from Unjha, Gujarat, Dr Asha Patel, has resigned from her seat ahead of the Lok Sabha elections citing infighting. She also appreciated Prime Minister’s quota move for people from the General Class which she said will benefit the Patel community. She handed over her resignation to the Assembly speaker Rajendra Trivedi this morning.

Dr Patel had defeated veteran Kadva Patidar community leader from the BJP, N.L. Patel, in the 2017 Assembly Elections at a time when the Patidar quota agitation was rife. N.L. Patel has welcomed Dr Ashaben’s decision. He said that the quota issue is now over after 10% elections were provided by the NDA government.

However, Asha Patel stated that she was not joining the BJP following her resignation.
