Months after former Congress MP and Saurashtra strongman Vitthal Radadiya crossed over to BJP along with his MLA son Jayesh,Rajkot MP Kunwarji Bavalia,also from Congress,appears all set to stage a revolt.

A strong Koli-Patel leader like Radadiya,Bavalia is reportedly unhappy after being denied a berth in the recent reshuffle of the union cabinet.

The Congress MP is holding a meeting of his supporters and some party leaders from Saurashtra at Jasdan in Rajkot district on Sunday. Speaking to The Sunday Express over phone,Bavalia said several Congress leaders,including MP from Surendranagar Somabhai Patel,also a Koli-Patel leader,and Jamnagar MP Vikram Madame,were expected to participate.

The agenda of the meeting,Bavalia said,is to discuss the neglect of the Saurashtra region by the Congress leadership.
