Guwahati: Working President of the Gujarat Congress and Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik Patel resigned from the party stating that the leadership of the party lacked “seriousness”.

In his resignation to Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Patel said that it had become difficult for him to remain in the party as the top leadership lacked the seriousness to fight for the issues concerning the people.
