Congress wants 'big three' in Gujarat alliance

He said that Rahul will attend his rally on 23 October when he along with his supporters will join the Congress party. "The (Gujarat) model which was highlighted to form the government at the Centre... you go and ask in Gujarat, where there are more than 7 lakh unemployed youths, where 74,000 farmers are indebted, where there is a ban on liquor but 10,000 to 15,000 people die every year because of alcohol, where the government education system has collapsed", he further added.

Thakor, who's a prominent face of the Thakor community leader in the poll-bound state, took the decision after meeting the Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday evening.

Solanki said Thakor met Gandhi with his "team" and made a decision to join the Congress in the interest of Gujarat.
