Accusing the party of indulging in caste-based in Gujarat, the state's Deputy Chief Minister said the party can go to the extent of inviting like if they feel it can help them form the government in the state.

"If feels that they can win the Assembly polls in Gujarat by joining hands with Pakistan-based like or any other such people, they would send them invitation without any hesitation," Patel said while addressing a press conference here.

Patel also alleged the country's grand old party of bringing back the (Kshatriya, Harijan, Adivasi and Muslim) of 1980s, and said they want to divide Gujarat on the basis of castes just to gather the support of the people.

"As the is practicing 'Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas', the is continuing to indulge in the 'Divide and Rule' policy which existed during colonial rule. In spite of having such strong roots, people have lost their faith in leadership," he said.

Commenting on the inclusion of OBC leader Alpesh Thakor to Congress, Patel claimed that the opposition party is desperately looking for a new leadership to campaign for them, and cited this as the reason for Rahul Gandhi's visit to Gujarat.
