Congress mentally harassed me: Rebel Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor says after cross voting in Rajya Sabha elections

Congress MLAs Alpesh and Dhavalsinh Zala both cross-voted in the Rajya Sabha elections held in Gujarat today.

Rebel Gujarat Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor has said that Congress used to mentally harass him. “I am now free from this torture,” he said after he submitted his resignation to the state assembly speaker.

“I used to be mentally harassed. Because of which my people suffered. Today I am free from that mental harassment. Only time will tell what is stored in next. But one thing I can say that I feel relieved from a huge weight I used to carry. I have come here to work for the people and I will put a logical end to the work I have started,” he said.

When asked who he voted for, Alpesh said Congress observer tried to create a ruckus when he cast his vote in the Rajya Sabha elections. “You can figure out from that. I have said earlier also that I have voted for national leadership. Since a few months, Congress leaders have been trying to insult and trying to kick me out of the party but even yesterday they had accepted I am a Congress MLA. I was also given a whip. But today instead of voting for Congress, I voted for national leadership,” he said.
