    BJP repeatedly harassing Hardik Patel: Priyanka Gandhi

    Synopsis

    Patel was arrested on Saturday night from Viramgam taluka in Gujarat's Ahmedabad district for failing to appear before a trial court in connection with the sedition case, hours after a warrant was issued against him. The Congress general secretary said Patel has been fighting for the employment of youth and the rights of farmers.

    "Hardik voiced the concerns of the people of his society, sought jobs for them, sought scholarships, carried out farmers' movement. BJP is calling this 'treason'," she said.
