Won't resign as MLA, Alpesh Thakor tells Congress
A day after the Congress approached Assembly speaker Rajendra Trivedi seeking disqualification of its dissident MLA Alpesh Thakor, the latter said on Friday that he would not resign as MLA "at any cost".
"I have resigned from posts in the Congress, not from the party's primary membership. I will not resign as MLA at any cost. People of Radhanpur elected me as their representative, and I will work for them for full five years," Thakor told reporters in response to questions about the Congress's move to get him disqualified.
