AHMEDABAD: Attacking former Congress leader Alpesh Thakor, Hardik Patel who recently joined Congress on Saturday said that Alpesh failed to handle the respect and power given to him by the Congress party.

Hardik told ANI, "Congress party had given so much respect and power but he could not handle it. He started playing blame games.”

Thakor had joined the Congress ahead of Gujarat Assembly poll in 2017 but he decided to resign from all party posts on Wednesday.

Hardik Patel also lashed out at the BJP, accusing the saffron party of making all efforts to stop him from contesting the Lok Sabha poll. He said, "I am accepting the decision of the High Court. BJP lawyers tried their best so that I could not contest the ongoing elections. Congress wanted to take me to the Parliament. I am a 25-year-old young man and many elections will come in the future.”

Earlier,  Supreme Court had refused to urgently hear a plea filed by 25-year-old Hardik seeking suspension of his conviction in a case of rioting and arson in Gujarat's Mehsana. The incident took place in 2015 when the Patidar quota stir was at its height and Hardik was leading the stir.

Hardik had joined Congress on March 12 and the party had named him as its contest from Jamnagar in Gujarat in the upcoming Lok Sabha poll.
