Rupani's resignation shows BJP's failure in Gujarat: Congress leaders

Rupani's resignation shows BJP's failure in Gujarat: Congress leaders

New Delhi, Sep 11 (UNI) Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani's resignation from the post on Saturday proves the failure of the BJP government in the state, particularly in Covid management which led to large number of deaths, Gujarat Congress chief Amit Chavda said.
Rupani resigned as the Chief Minister of Gujarat on Saturday without any successor being announced.
"The Gujarat government has failed on all fronts. Over three lakh people have died of Covid, people have lost their loved ones. Farmers are suffering, every class of society is facing problems. The BJP government has failed and the resignation proves it," Chavda told UNI.
He said it was a tactic of the BJP to hide its failure.
"No chief minister of the BJP other than Narendra Modi, has completed their tenures. There is also an internal fight in the party since CR Patil became the party president (in Gujarat). This is a tactic to divert people's attention from the mismanagement done by the BJP. But people have already seen what happened," Chavda said.
Congress spokesperson in Gujarat Manhal Patel questioned why the Chief Minister had to resign just a month after the state government celebrated five years of good governance.
"In Gujarat, since the BJP came to power in the state in 1995, there have been eight chief ministers. None of them except Narendra Modi, has finished their tenure. These are the internal matters of BJP which have come out in the open now," Gujarat Congress spokesperson Manhal Patel told UNI.
"The Gujarat government recently celebrated five years of good governance. The BJP was lauding Vijay Rupani's 'good governance', but his resignation shows what the truth was. If he was so good, what was the need to change him?" he said.
The state government had celebrated five years of Rupani as the Chief Minister with a series of events between August one to nine.
"The way lakhs of people died during Covid second wave, the Chief Minister is responsible for that. We had been saying that and now his resignation has proved it," he said.
In a surprise move, Rupani resigned on Saturday as Chief Minister of the state leaving questions over who could be his successor. The BJP has convened a meeting of party legislators to choose the next chief minister.
