The Gujarat High Court on Tuesday refused to hear the plea filed by Congress seeking directions to Gujarat Assembly Speaker to take quick action on a disqualification against the party rebel Lawmaker Alpesh Thakor. Talking to media after the government, assistant government pleader Utkarsh Sharma said that the Court refuses to take up the plea filed by Congress.

Thakor, ahead of the national polls, had on April 10 announced his disassociation from the party and all party posts. Speaking to the media, Thakor had said that he will complete his 5 years as an MLA in Gujarat, However, he junked the reports about him joining the Bharatiya Janta Party.

Alpesh Thakor quit the party in protest alleging that the Congress has ignored him and his Thakor community in the state in a run-up to the national elections.

Alpesh, an OBC Leader from Koli Thakor Community of the state represents Radhanpur Assembly Seat. Thakor had not resigned from his primary membership of the party to avoid defection and to continue as a Lawmaker in Gujarat Assembly.

However, Congress on its party initiated the procedure to disqualify him. The party has alleged that Alpesh Thakore had contested the state assembly elections on Congress ticket in the year 2017 from Radhanur Constituency in North Gujarat Banaskantha district and won from the seat. Since he has resigned from the party and cannot continue to be an MLA.
