Ahmedabad. Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has resigned from his post on Saturday, almost a year and a half before the assembly elections in the state. However, the reason for his resignation is not yet clear. After his resignation, BJP is now thinking for the next Chief Minister in the state. Meanwhile, Congress leader Hardik Patel has targeted BJP.
Congress leader Hardik Patel claimed victory of Congress in a tweet and said, ‘Main reason for replacing Chief Minister Rupani!! The secret survey of RSS and BJP in August was shocking. Congress got 43% votes and 96-100 seats, BJP got 38% votes and 80-84 seats, AAP got 3% votes and 0 seats, MIME got 1% votes and 0 seats and all independents got 15% votes and 4 seats was.’
He further said that the resignation of the Chief Minister is a decision taken to mislead the people of Gujarat. But the real change will come after the elections next year, when the people will uproot the BJP from power.
Let us tell you that elections are to be held for 182 assembly seats in Gujarat in December next year. Rupani is the fourth chief minister to step down in BJP-ruled states during the coronavirus pandemic. He took oath as the Chief Minister of the state for the second time in December 2017. Soon after Rupani’s resignation was announced, BJP’s organization general secretary BL Santosh and Gujarat state unit in-charge Bhupendra Yadav met party office-bearers.
Party sources said that the name of Rupani’s successor may be discussed in the possible legislature party meeting on Sunday. “I have resigned from the post of Chief Minister of Gujarat,” Rupani told reporters after meeting Governor Acharya Devvrat and submitting his resignation. “I was given an opportunity to serve the state for five years. I contributed to the development of the state. Whatever work my party gives me, I will do it.
