Why was BJP ‘forced’ to remove Vijay Rupani in Gujarat?
Bhupendra Patel took oath on Monday
Only Bhupendra Patel (59) took oath on Monday after Vijay Rupani’s abrupt resignation from the chief minister’s post last Saturday. Patel was unanimously elected the leader of the BJP Legislature Party on Sunday and was sworn in as the 17th Chief Minister of the state by Governor Acharya Devvrat in Gandhinagar on Monday.
Bharatiya Janata Party’s Gujarat unit chief Bhupendra Yadav has been holding frequent meetings in Gandhinagar for the last two days to decide the names of people to be included in the new cabinet.
There is speculation that Patel will induct many new faces in his cabinet and that many old leaders may have to clear space for younger leaders. Controversy has broken out here regarding this.
Anandiben’s special is Bhupendra Patel
Bhupendra Patel is considered close to Anandiben Patel, the former Chief Minister of Gujarat and the current Governor of Uttar Pradesh. This is also believed to be one of the reasons behind making him the Chief Minister.
Elections in Gujarat to be held in December 2022
In such a situation, when the state assembly elections are expected to be held in December 2022, the BJP has reposed faith in Patel, a Patidar, to win the election. In the 2017 assembly elections, the BJP won 99 out of 182 seats in the state assembly, while the Congress got 77 seats.
