Speaking to reporters at the city airport after returning here, Thakor claimed that Gandhi trusts him a lot.
"I also shared my views about the ways to strengthen the party and how we can start preparations for the elections," Thakor said.
"Rahul Gandhi said he has immense trust in me. He offered to give me any responsibility of my choice. Such offers are rare to come by in politics," Thakor claimed.
"I told him I want to work only in Gujarat. But he asked me to continue with Bihar too. He even indicated that I would be given responsibility of other states, which he will discuss with me after he comes back from Dubai," said Thakor.
On his criticism of the Gujarat Congress leadership, Thakor maintained that it was not a "rebellion".
"I am an honest man. I will speak if something is not going in the right direction. If we do not speak, how would we correct our mistakes? I only spoke truth. It should not be labelled as a rebellion," he said.
The young OBC leader had said recently that his community and supporters were feeling "cheated" and "ignored", which was seen as a criticism of the state leadership.
