Gujarat: BJP calls legislators' meeting tomorrow to elect new leader

Gujarat: BJP calls legislators' meeting tomorrow to elect new leader


Ahmedabad, Sept 11 (UNI) The BJP will hold a meeting of its legislators tomorrow in Gandhinagar to possibly elect a new leader after the unexpected resignation of Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani.
Union home minister Amit Shah may attend the meeting along with central observers, state BJP spokesperson Yamal Vyas said.
Rupani submitted his resignation to the Governor at the Raj Bhavan in the presence of senior party leaders, including Bhupender Yadav, Mansukh Mandaviya and Parshottam Rupala. Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel was also present.
Rupani’s resignation came as a surprise as he had participated in a programme this morning which was virtually addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
After submitting his resignation, the 65-year-old BJP leader, who represents Rajkot West assembly constituency, told reporters that he had voluntarily resigned.
He thanked PM Modi for giving him the opportunity to have a journey of five years as CM.
"It is well-known that the BJP keeps changing (CMs) as per requirements,” Rupani said, describing it as a speciality of the party that “every worker delivers to the fullest”.
“I too will continue to work for the party with the same energy,” he said.
Rupani, who served as the Chief Minister for five years, had been hand-picked by Modi to rule his home state by cutting short the tenure of Anandiben Patel in August 2016.
