Hitting out at former Congress leader Alpesh Thakor, Hardik Patel on Saturday said that Alpesh failed to handle the respect and power given to him by the Congress party.

“Congress party had given so much respect and power but he could not handle it. He started playing blame games,” Hardik, who had joined Congress few weeks ago,  told ANI.

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 party of making all efforts to stop him from contesting the Lok Sabha poll.

“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,” he said.
