Hardik Patel says Congress hasn’t lost, blames everything under the sun except Rahul Gandhi

Like a true blue Congress leader, Hardik Patel has blamed everything and everyone, except Congress president Rahul Gandhi and the dynasty, for Congress' disastrous loss.

After his party faced a humiliating defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Congress leader and the face of Patidar agitation Hardik Patel has claimed that the defeat is not of the Congress party but of people of the country.

Hardik Patel, similar to his party president Rahul Gandhi, attempted to claim some moral victory after his party found struggling to win even 50 seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. In a hurry to save his face from the disastrous loss and to save Rahul Gandhi from scrutiny, Hardik Patel resorted to rhetorics rather than accepting the defeat of his party.

Hardik Patel in a tweet claimed that the elections were not a loss of the Congress party but it was a defeat of the education, women and the issues of the people. He went on to claim that it was the defeat of the people of this country and not of the Congress party.

Further, Hardik Patel also attempted to absolve Congress president Rahul Gandhi from the defeat by claiming that Rahul Gandhi had honestly fought the elections by being the voice of the people.

Interestingly, Hardik Patel was earlier barred from contesting the Lok Sabha elections, as the Gujarat High Court refused to stay his conviction in a case of rioting.

The BJP is sweeping Gujarat, leading in all 26 Lok Sabha constituencies in the state. BJP chief Amit Shah is leading from Gandhinagar by a historic margin.
