Thakor was addressing 'Vyasan-Mukti Mahakumbh', a de-addiction conclave organised by Kshatriya Thakor Sena, a non-political body led by him.
The event was being seen as a show of strength of OBC, SC and ST communities vis-a-vis the Patel community's ongoing stir seeking reservation under OBC quota.
"As leaders of OBC, SC and ST communities are here, I want to tell you that these communities will decide the Chief Minister of Gujarat in 2017. It will be us, who will decide what will happen in 2017," Thakor said at the programme held at GMDC ground here.
Hardik Patel had earlier claimed that Patel community holds the key to make or break any government here and warned the state to face the wrath of Patel voters in 2017 if their demand for reservation was not met.
