Gujarat: Deputy CM Nitin Patel asks for action against Alpesh Thakor even as Gujarat Congress continues to support him

Gujarat Deputy CM Nitin Patel, reprimanded Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor, of indulging in violence and instigating it. He also told media in Gandhinagar, that strict action should be taken against people like Alpesh Thakor and his Thakor Sena, especially by Congress.

“He (Thakor) had given orders to Thakor Sena members to assault North Indians. His outfit indulged into violence against North Indian community in Gujarat,” said Patel saying that Thakor is trying to gain political mileage out of the incident. “Congress has been trying to play dirty politics and misleading people of Gujarat. They have tarnished image of Gujarat at national level,” said Nitin Patel.

However, Congress is brazening it out as Gujarat assembly leader of opposition and MLA from Amreli, Paresh Dhanani defended Alpesh Thakor and his Thakor sena for trying to incite a mob to take to violence against non-Gujaratis in parts of the state.

“When Gujarat government has failed to ensure employment to local youth and is pretending that 80% of jobs were secured for local youths in industries, it is their responsibility to see that youth is not diverted,” said Paresh Dhanani. He even said that Alpesh Thakor should not be held responsible for the violence.

Yesterday, we had reported how Alpesh Thakor was recorded trying to instigate violence against migrant workers demanding reservation for jobs for Gujaratis against non-Gujaratis and had even issued a deadline for them to leave Gujarat. He also warned that they will come to check places if all migrant workers have left the place or not. He also warned Gujarat government that if demands are not met “….then tyres will burn, trucks will be stopped and trucks will be broken.”

Vijay Rupani led Gujarat government, has been convincing migrant workers of safety from violence, and also have arrested hundreds in connection with violence against migrants.
