The OBC leader along with his associate and Bayad MLA Dhavalsinh Zala had yesterday met the deputy CM. However, unsure of the course of action taken up by Thakor, state BJP spokesperson claimed that the meeting might be for some other issue as they both are MLAs. Media reports of Thakore’s probabilities of joining the BJP have been doing rounds for a while now.

Though, speculations abound that Thakor and Zala might switch over to the saffron camp, though Aplesh has denied it. Thakor had resigned from the Congress party ahead of the Lok Sabha election in April 2019 over rejection by the Congress party for his candidature for the Lok Sabha seat from Patan. The Congress had also rejected Thakor’s demand for a ticket to a member of his outfit, the Thakor Sena, from the Banaskantha Lok Sabha seat.

In the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections, the BJP had won all 26 Lok Sabha constituencies in Gujarat. The BJP got a stunning 303 seats in the Lok Sabha elections. Since then, speculations of Congress disintegrating in many states are doing the rounds.
