Ahmedabad (Gujarat): Former Congress MLA Jodhaji Thakor joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday.
Jodhaji, who is considered to be a prominent face of the Thakor community, joined the BJP in the presence of Union Minister of State for Panchayati Raj, Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Parshottam Rupala.
