The Gujarat Assembly elections are just a few days away. The BJP is likely to announce its list of candidates late in the evening. Nitin Patel and Vijay Rupani are out of the election. Vijay Rupani has been sidelined by making him in-charge of Punjab.
The resentment of the Patidars and the poor performance of the Corona epidemic have taken a toll on the Rupani government. The BJP organisation did not leave any stone unturned to project the image of the Rupani government as ‘sensitive’. It was necessary for the Gujarat BJP to do such a makeover after the tough ruler Anandiben. On September 11, 2021, Vijay Rupani also resigned from his post. At the same time, the entire government was broken and Bhupendra Patel’s government was formed.
In the 2017 elections, the resentment of the Patidars was heavy. Nitin Patel had failed in the situation as a former deputy chief minister. Later it came to light that the former deputy chief minister and minister of health were partially to blame for the dire circumstances that developed during the second wave of Corona.
Former Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel, who have been sidelined, have been given a chance by the high command in national level politics. Meanwhile, Rupani himself had expressed his desire to work in the organisation. Thus, two veteran leaders of Gujarat have been given a big responsibility by the high command. Rupani has been given the responsibility of in-charge of Punjab and Chandigarh ahead of the Gujarat Assembly elections.
Former Chief Minister Vijay Rupani resigned on September 11, 2021, over the order of the high command. He was the Chief Minister for five years and 35 days. Vijay Rupani has travelled a long way in politics to become CM by becoming active in ABVP since his student days.
