Hardik Patel and Jignesh Mewani, the two leaders from Gujarat, were asked to go back as they tried to score some political brownie points during a student agitation in Gandhinagar.
Bengaluru: It was Friday (December 7). The whole nation was engrossed in a debate relating to the Hyderabad encounter in which four rape accused were done to death by the police.
Students in Gandhinagar, Gujarat had been protesting against alleged malpractices that took place in the Bin Sachivalay examinations.
In fact, Friday happened to be the third day of protests.
Well, students protesting against such alleged malpractices is their right. But to use these protests in order to claim some credits is outright disgusting.
Two youngsters who are well-known for their Modi hatred entered the protests. But their entry was certainly not taken kindly to by the agitating students.
The two in question – Congress leader Hardik Patel and Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mewani – were in attendance.
But much to their dismay and consternation, the sharp students were disgusted with these two leaders. The intent by the two leaders was ominous. They wanted to politicise the issue, criticise the Central government and reap some rich dividends. But the students were too good for them.
As per reports, some of these students didn’t even care about them and expressed their ignorance as to why they were there.
One of the students who had gathered there openly said that he was happy with the SIT investigation and was waiting for the probe result. The student also said that the two leaders, apart from criticising the Modi government, did not have any solution to offer to resolve the mess.
But on their part, the two leaders tried to defend themselves saying they were present at the site to motivate the students and not be the face of the protests.
In fact, chants of “Hardik Go Back” were raised as the leader tried to speak. This surely would have left him embarrassed.
We can only wish the two leaders the very best next time!
