Alpesh, who hit the headlines around the same time as Hardik Patel and Jignesh Mevani, had won from Radhanpur on a Congress ticket, but had resigned from the party and the Assembly in 2019.
Angry crowds shooed away BJP MLAs from visiting the deceased's family, while demonstrations were held in various parts of the state.
Alpesh Thakor on Monday made it amply clear that all three of them will come to MP to teach lesson to the BJP.
Alpesh Thakor, who had led an agitation against the BJP government over the issues concerning the OBCs under the banner of the Gujarat Kshatriya-Thakor Sena, defeated Lavingji Thakor.
Thakore, who has emerged as a strong OBC leader along with Hardik Patel and Jignesh Mewani during the last two years, announced his move in New Delhi after an evening meeting with Ahmed Patel.

Apart from these leaders, the Congress also hinted at forging a pre-poll alliance with Sharad Pawar-led NCP and bringing on board Chhotu Vasava, the lone JD (U) MLA from the state.
