Jagdish Thakor likely to be appointed new Gujarat Congress Chief

Ahmedabad: Congress is likely to announce new President for its Gujarat unit and Leader of Opposition just before the Assembly elections.

Former MP and OBC leader Jagdish Thakor has emerged as the frontrunner for Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) president's post while the name of tribal leader Sukhram Rathva, five-time MLA from Pavi Jetpur, is doing rounds for the LoP.

The Congress high command is believed to have finalised the name.

Bhartsinh Solanki, Arjun Modhwadia, Hardik Patel and Rajya Sabha MP Shaktisinh Gohil are also in the race for Gujarat Congress Chief's post.

State Congress president Amit Chavda and Leader of Opposition Paresh Dhanani resigned in March 2021 when the party showed very poor results in local body elections but were asked to hold the position till new names are announced.

“Names of state unit president and leader of opposition are likely to be announced soon, most probably by Friday. The names are being finalized by the central leadership,” state Congress spokesperson Manish Doshi told PTI.

The party recently announced the appointment of Rajasthan minister Raghu Sharma as the new Gujarat in-charge in October. The post of Gujarat unit in-charge was lying vacant since the death of Rajiv Satav in May 2021.

The Gujarat BJP in September replaced the Vijay Rupani cabinet with a new government under Bhupendra Patel.
