BJP springs a surprise again in picking Rupani's replacement: Meet Gujarat CM-designate

Patel's name was not in the long list of probables being discussed in state political circles and he emerged as the dark horse, a political observer said. A soft-spoken leader, Patel has had a meteoric rise in state politics, starting at the municipality level.

He contested his maiden Assembly election in 2017 and won Ghatlodia constituency in Ahmedabad by over 1.17 lakh votes, the highest victory margin in the state during that election. 

Fondly called 'Dada' by many, Patel's constituency is part of the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat represented by Union minister Amit Shah. He holds a diploma in civil engineering, always has a smiling face and is well-connected to the grassroots, a party worker said.

First-time MLA Bhupendra Patel landed CM gig just like PM Modi

Patel has never held a ministerial post, just like Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was never a minister when he became Gujarat CM 20 years ago. Modi was sworn in as CM on October 7, 2001, and became an MLA on February 24, 2002, by winning the Rajkot seat bypoll.

The Darkhorse who went unnoticed by own colleagues

According to CNN-News18, Bhupendra Patel was planting saplings in his constituency with a handful of supporters on Sunday when he is said to have learnt that he was to be the next chief minister. He even caught no one’s attention when he reached the BJP Legislature Party meeting at 3pm, where he sat towards the end of the hall and his name was then announced as the unanimous choice as the new CM.

Bhupendra Patel to be sworn-in as Gujarat CM today

Bhupendra Patel will take oath as the 17th chief minister of Gujarat today at 2.20 pm, replacing Vijay Rupani, who unexpectedly stepped down from the post of chief minister in the state, ahead of the assembly elections in 2022. Governor Acharya Devvrat shared the information on his official twitter handle. 

Bhupendra Patel will take oath as the Chief Minister of Gujarat on Monday, state BJP president C R Paatil said.

Talking to reporters on Sunday, Paatil said, "Bhupendra Patel will take oath as the chief minister...Only the chief minister will be sworn in tomorrow."

He added the new cabinet will be formed after consultation with the senior leaders in a couple of days.

No discussion was held in the legislature party meeting about the deputy chief minister's post, he said.

Patel, who was also present there, told reporters that he was grateful to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief J P Nadda, and Union minister Amit Shah for the trust they reposed in him.

He said he was also grateful to the trust reposed in him by the Gujarat leadership, including outgoing CM Vijay Rupani and Deputy CM Nitin Patel, C R Paatil and other leaders.

He said the blessing of former CM Anandiben Patel were with him all the time.

"The government has worked well so that development reaches the last person. We will plan anew and discuss with the organisation to take forward the development works," he said.
