Hardik Patel aide Narendra Patel's dramatic late night allegation that he was offered a crore to join the BJP, has spurred another former member of their group to quit Gujarat's ruling party. Patel leader from Surat Nikhil Sawani had joined the BJP along with 150 associates last month. This morning, he said, "Heard about Rs 1 crore offer by BJP to Narendra Patel, I'm upset. I am leaving BJP today." Mr Sawani later met with Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi in Gandhinagar. Mr Gandhi is scheduled to meet Jignesh Mevani, who has taken on the BJP government over attacks on Dalits.
