Ahmedabad: Congress MLA Dhavalsinh Zala on Wednesday said that Kshatriya Thakor Sena's core committee has given an ultimatum to him, OBC leader Alpesh Thakor and Bharatji Thakor to leave the party amid speculation that they may join the BJP.
“In a meeting, Kshatriya Thakor Sena core committee passed a resolution and served an ultimatum to us to leave the Congress party,” said Zala.
"Alpesh Thakor is currently out of the state. A decision will be taken when he comes back. If my supporters insist that I leave the party, I won’t defer the decision,” he said.
On March 7, Zala, a close friend of Alpesh, had told ANI that the BJP contacted him regarding joining the party.
Alpesh, who came to limelight due to his quota agitation some years back, joined the Congress in 2017 ahead of the last Gujarat polls and was elected from Radhanpur.
