"I will not join the BJP. I have resigned from all the posts in the party. We will complete the five years term as an MLA," said Alpesh Thakor while addressing a press conference here.
Their resignation came a day ahead of the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections.
"My Kshatriya Thakor Sena was facing insults in the Congress party. So, I am resigning," said Alpesh.
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.
Polling for 26 Lok Sabha seats at stake in Gujarat will be held in a single phase on April 23. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
