On the occasion of Gujrati new year, Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel and various other BJP leaders met Home Minister Amit Shah at his Ahmedabad residence and greeted each other.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged people of the country to follow the footsteps of India’s ‘Iron Man’ Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
RSS leader Indresh Kumar accused Opposition of creating ‘hatred and violence’ in the country.
The rushed swearing-in of new Gujarat CM Bhupendra Patel took place following the dramatic exit of Vijay Rupani on Saturday. 59-year-old Patel was the only minister to have been sworn in.
Congress leader P Chidambaram said BJP is ‘busy replacing’ Chief Ministers in the states and asked when the party realized that they were ‘non-performing CMs’.
Bhupendra Patel is a first-term MLA and just like Narendra Modi, has never held a ministerial post in Gujarat before becoming the CM. Patel's inauguration ceremony was attended by Union Minister Amit Shah.
Talking to reporters on Sunday, state BJP president C R Paatil said, 'Bhupendra Patel will take oath as the chief minister. Only the chief minister will be sworn in tomorrow.'
Patel won the 2017 Gujarat Legislative Assembly elections from Ghatlodia constituency, defeating Congress candidate Shashikant Patel. A qualified engineer, and also a builder, he is considered close to former chief minister Anandiben Patel
'I will hold consultations with Gujarat leaders, then the central leadership will take a decision,' said Prahlad Joshi. BJP general secretary Tarun Chaag has also reached Ahmedabad.
'Names of Patel, Faldu, Rupala and Mandaviya are being discussed. But it is impossible to say who will be the chief minister as the decision will be taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi,' a party leader said.
BJP is gearing up for elections in end-2022 and possibly did not want to go with the incumbent chief minister. The second big reason to ease out Rupani is the state’s response to Covid-19. Who will be the next Chief Minister?
