BJP in Gujarat and Haryana is incompetent and assaults its own people: AAP

New Delhi: Attacking the BJP government in Gujarat over the violence in connection with the Patel quota stir, the AAP on Monday termed it as not only "incompetent," but also "anti-people".

Condemning the "police assault" on Patidar community, senior AAP leader Ashutosh said the "Gujarat government has no business to continue."

He also took a dig at the M L Khattar government in Haryana over the recent Jat protests that had turned violent.

"BJP in Gujarat and BJP in Haryana, both are incompetent, anti-people and assaults its own people. They will be punished by people. Gujarat govt has no business to continue. Police assault on Patidar community is condemnable," Ashutosh tweeted.

Interestingly, the AAP is trying hard to make inroads in the state, once headed by Narendra Modi.

Curfew was clamped on Sunday in Mehsana town in Gujarat and mobile internet service banned as a massive rally of the Patel community demanding reservation and immediate release of their jailed leaders turned violent.

On Monday, a state-wide bandh call was given by the Patel community over the quota issue but it had little impact except in some pockets dominated by the community members in different cities of the state.
