Senior BJP leader Bhupendra Patel – known to be a protege of former Chief Minister Anandiben Patel — will succeed Vijay Rupani as the Chief Minister of Gujarat. He was elected the leader of the legislature party after a meeting.

The MLA from Ghatlodia seat — held earlier by Anandiben Patel — was the part of the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation and the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority.

Vijay Rupani stepped down yesterday without citing any reason — a move that came as a surprise to many. The state’s development, he said, should carry on under “new leadership” and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “guidance”.
