In Gujarat, after Vijay Rupani resigned from the post of Chief Minister, the exercise of selecting a new Chief Minister has intensified. The BJP MLAs will meet on Sunday at 2 pm to elect a new CM for Gujarat.
Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi have been observers. Party general secretary Tarun Chugh has also reached Ahmedabad.
Arriving in Ahmedabad, Narendra Singh Tomar said that we had come here to discuss further in the name of the next Chief Minister of Gujarat. We will first discuss with the region president and other party leaders.
Meanwhile, there is a round of speculation about the name of the new chief minister. Discussions on the name of Praful Khoda Patel, a leader who is considered very close to PM Modi, are intensifying.
BJP sources said Praful Khoda Patel and Union Minister Purushottam Bhai Rupala could be made the next Chief Minister of Gujarat.
Sources also said that Vijay Rupani has resigned from the post of CM of Gujarat under the guidance of the Center. For the upcoming assembly elections in Gujarat, the BJP is playing tricks to please the powerful Patel community.
After meeting BJP’s Gujarat in-charge Bhupendra Yadav on Saturday, Vijay Rupani resigned from the post of CM.
The plan of resignation has been done under the orders of the Centre. Two senior ministers, the state in charge and the party general secretary, were already present.
Mansukh Mandaviya and Purshottam Rupala were present there. Along with this, BL Santosh and Bhupendra Yadav also held a meeting.
Sources also said that the possible names for the post of Chief Minister include Mansukh Mandaviya and Nitin Patel. Mansukh Mandaviya has recently been made the Union Health Minister. Nitin Patel is the Deputy Chief Minister of Gujarat.
After resigning as Gujarat Chief Minister, Vijay Rupani said, “I am grateful to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and thank him for giving me this opportunity.” Rupani said that Gujarat’s development should move forward under one leadership.
“I believe that Gujarat’s development journey should move forward with new leadership, new vigor and new energy,” Rupani said. With this in mind, I have resigned from the post of Chief Minister of Gujarat.
“I am grateful that a party worker like me was given the important opportunity to serve as the Chief Minister of Gujarat,” Rupani said. “Throughout my tenure, I have been guided by the Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi. I am grateful to the Hon’ble Prime Minister for the opportunity to contribute to the development of the state,” he said.
