Major Upheaval In Gujarat Politics | Sudden Resignation Of CM Vijay Rupani
In the politics of Gujarat, there is a sudden change of old and new
On Saturday, Vijay Rupani, along with other top ministers of the Gujarat government, Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Bhai Patel, Parliamentary Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama, reached the National BJP National Organization General Secretary BL Santosh Raj Bhavan and Acharya Devvarta resigned.
Addressing the media at Raj Bhavan, Rupani said, "I thank the BJP's top Mowli Mandal for this responsibility. As Chief Minister, I have completed all of my tasks. Gujarat was put on a new development route during my time there."
"I am happy to resign," Rupani said. I have not been asked to resign. There is no conflict between me and the organization. I am a BJP man and will continue to work as an activist.
I bid farewell to the post of Chief Minister today with the hope that Gujarat will develop under new leadership and a new dimension will be created.
During the press conference, Rupani said that the government in Gujarat is not run by Rupani or anyone else. Every election and action is a battle under the leadership of Narendra Modi. The government does not belong to Rupani or anyone else. Everything is going on under Modi's leadership. The country belongs to Modi, added Rupani.
However, top leaders, including Rupani, avoided giving a reason for the sudden resignation. Union Minister Mansukh Mandvia said, "I am not a contender for the post of CM." Bhupendrasinh Chudasama said that this decision has been taken after deliberation.
Union Minister Purushottam Rupala said the next strategy would be decided in a day or so. The situation will be clear by tomorrow evening. A meeting of MLAs will be convened late this evening or tomorrow morning to discuss the new Chief Minister.
