“I can stay without power, but not without respect. I cannot accept if someone says that I can sell myself or I am greedy. So, I am saying that we have chosen the path of struggle which is full of difficulties," Alpesh Thakor said, amid speculation of his joining BJP
Thakor, who is also the president of OBC SC ST Ekta Manch and Gujarat Kshatriya Thakor Sena, however, called an urgent meeting of senior office bearers of Kshatriya Thakor Sena Thursday afternoon, setting off the rumours again.
Following the rape of a 14-month-old girl, Thakor had publicly blamed a "non-Gujarati" for the crime. However, in his address at the 'Sadbhavna Upvas' venue near his residence in Ranip area, he asserted he never indulged in spreading hatred.
