Gujarat Assembly Elections 2017 Results: OBC leader Alpesh Thakor has said that time for BJP in Gujarat is over and Congress is coming to power in the state.

On Monday, he said that people of Gujarat want change.

Thakor sounded confident about his party, which is in the opposition for over two decades, winning this election.

"It is a matter of happiness for me that I was the first voter to cast vote at my polling booth. We are committed to change the kind of politics happening in the state.

"The Congress is set to form the next government that will work for the poor, farmers, women and all sections of the society," he told reporters after casting his vote on Thursday.
