Hardik Patel threatens Congress with protest at Rahul Gandhi's Surat rally

Responding to the allegations, Congress' chief spokesperson RS Surjewala said, "Disturbed by the recent developments in the state where the people have rejected BJP which is all set to lose the upcoming elections, the central and state leadership of the party is resorting to cheap and conniving tactics", he said.

In a tweet, he had also threatened that the Patidars would oppose Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi during his visit to Surat on November 3, like it did to BJP president Amit Shah at one of his public gatherings in the city. Hardik Patel took to his Twitter account on Saturday and gave an ultimatum asking the Congress party to clear its stand by November 3, 2017, on how it will give reservation or face consequences. "It is Hardik, not Congress, who needs to clear his stand", said Rupani. Rupani said that the state government had already passed a bill to give a 10% EBC quota to the non-reserved communities. Later in the clip, Patel said that he received a call from Patel reservation stir leader Hardik Patel, who asked him not to talk about the matter to anyone, and also asked him not to make an issue of the same.

Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani demanded resignation of Congress veteran Ahmed Patel from the Rajya Sabha on Friday alleging him to have link with a suspected IS terrorist arrested earlier in the week from Bharuch.

Mr Rupani was referring to the recent arrest of two suspected ISIS operatives by the Gujarat Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS). One of the hospital trustees, Jayesh Patel clarified that Kasim had joined the hospital six months ago but had resigned on October 4 and was relived on October 24.

UB alumnus arrested for alleged opioid scheme
Defense attorney Brian Kelly said after Thursday's hearing that his client is not guilty and will fight the charges. Fentanyl is a highly addictive synthetic opioid that can be up to 100 times more potent than morphine.

The hospital's website has a list of eight trustees but Patel's name does not figure in the list.

According to Rupani, the charges leveled by the ATS against the two arrested IS suspects -lawyer Ubaid Mirza (29) and Kasim Steamerwala (31) - the duo had planned to attack a Hindu Godman, Hindu shrines and a synagogue. Ahmed Patel disapproved the allegations as baseless. "My party and I appreciate the efforts to nab the two terrorists".

Naqvi said that the BJP held national security above politics and claimed that the party was not trying to malign the Congress in view of the Gujarat Assembly polls. I demand strict and speedy action against them.
