Bhupendra Patel will be the new Chief Minister of Gujarat. He was on Sunday elected as new Gujarat Chief Minister, replacing Vijay Rupani, who abruptly resigned on Saturday.
Patel was earlier Chairman of the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority.
“I am a loyal soldier of the BJP. I will work to strengthen the organisation or whatever role the party leadership assigns me,” he told the reporters after tendering the resignation to Governor Acharya Devvrat.
Assembly elections in the state are due by late 2022.
