It may be mentioned that Hardik Patel, who joined the BJP from the Congress before the Gujarat assembly elections, led the Patidar movement in the state between 2015 and 2017. Due to this movement, the then Chief Minister Anandiben Patel had to lose his chair. Hardik Patel was then demanding reservation for the Patidar community and his demand was that the government should include the Patidar community in the OBC (Other Backward Classes). After this movement, Hardik emerged as a young leader across the country. At that time, the Gujarat government was shaken by Hardik’s movement.
Easy to fight on the road, hard to make laws: Hardik Patel
Viramgam BJP MLA Hardik Patel told the media that, ‘Obviously, when the process of our agitation was going on, the emphasis was that you make a law at any cost. At that time, we thought that the law would be made sitting in the House. That would happen without any discussion. But for the last one week, whether it is the issue of impact fee in the House, or the issue of compulsory teaching of Gujarati language, there is a debate. In which the opposition also gives their suggestions and the government party is also talking differently. That is, from the road you can only fight, give speeches, march and agitate, but when the law is made on various issues, it seems easy to make a law to make only Gujarati subject mandatory, but see how to make provisions in it. falls That is, it is easy to fight on the road, but it is difficult to sit in the house and make laws. We did a good job when we fought on the road and are doing a good job at home as well.’
Participating in the debate on the bill, Hardik has presented his point very well. This shows that they have come to the house with full preparation. Hardik further said that this bill will help to increase the pride of Gujarati language. It will make our culture stronger. However, during this address, Hardik Patel described the process of making the law as difficult and said that it is very easy to say anything while standing on the road.
Earlier, Gujarat Education Minister Kuber Singh Dindor had introduced a bill to make the teaching of Gujarati language compulsory in all schools in the state from class 1 to 8. Gujarati writers have been demanding this issue for a long time. The matter also reached the High Court. Gujarati language will be made compulsory in all board schools after this bill is passed in the assembly. The bill will come into effect from the academic session 2023-24.
