Senior BJP leader Bhupendra Patel is new Gujarat chief minister


Gandhinagar, Sep 12 (IANS): Senior BJP leader Bhupendra Patel was on Sunday elected the new Gujarat Chief Minister, replacing Vijay Rupani, who abruptly resigned on Saturday.

The MLA from Ahmedabad's Ghatlodia, Patel was earlier Chairman of the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority.

Rupani, who on Saturday tendered his resignation, sought to dispel speculations about the reasons.

"I am a loyal soldier of the BJP and have resigned of my own accord. Nobody has asked me to do so. I will work to strengthen the organisation or whatever role the party leadership assigns me," he told the reporters after tendering the resignation to Governor Acharya Devvrat.

Assembly elections in the state are due by late 2022.

    So an one-time MLA, a municipality level guy can now be picked for the CM post, only if because the ego of one man is satisfied. If Congress was a "high-command" party, BJP is now a "supreme-command" party.

    Readers, Patidar are the most influential, powerful community in Gujarat.. The BJP has killed two birds with one stone... It has cleverly replaced CM. V. Rupani, with Patidar leader Bhupendrabhai Patel to counter Congress Patidar leader, the very controversial Hritik Patel !!! This elevation will deflate and demoralize any remnant Congress footprints in Gujarat !!!

    Jossey Sir, I don't know if he is a Poojary or not....but I know he is not a supporter of Tipu like you, Ivan, Lobo and Oscar.... Tipu captured about 70 thousand of your ancestors ( Canara Catholics) in 1765....just 250 years before and took them to Srirangapatna as slaves.... Only 20 thousand returned back when Tipu was killed by British on 4th May 1799... This is well recorded in history....with what face you and your CONgress moron friends support 'Tipu Jayanthi' is beyond my imagination....Shame on you and your good for nothing CONgress friends... ...Tak...Takk...

    In case if you missed media show of celebration of Tippu Jayanti by BJP with typical Tippu’s costumes by ministers to appease muslims?????…..What happened to your shame business now???. If people don’t like Tippu then they should also hate BJP because they are two faces of same coin but if they don’t then they are hypocritic blinds.

    You should worry about your own party where CMs are resigning on mass scale on thier own. In one year 4 CMs resigned and many more in line. Whereas in congress party even if it’s president relinquished his job still the members and people want him back.

    Yesterday I had commented that a powerful Patel ( Patidar) will take over in Gujarat.Before the general elections the new income tax code will replace the old income tax act , this will simplify things, it is drafted by another Patel ( Mukesh Patel) -a very intelligent person, the financial year might change from Jan to Dec ( instead of April to March), Nirmala will have to go because of the glitches in the new IT efiling portal ,there will be many changes, including ......Men may come and men may go, but BJP will stay.....
