The moment he won his first-ever election, Gujarat Congress leader Alpesh Thakor messaged his new party chief Rahul Gandhi. "We won," he wrote to the Congress president. "Congress won, brother," was the reply. Alpesh Thakor, recruited by the Congress in Gujarat with an eye on the sizeable OBC or Other Backward Caste votes, had some tense moments when he was trailing on Monday morning, less than an hour into the counting of votes. Soon, the leads changed and Thakor, 40, was home.
