Gujarat Cabinet Minister
The swearing-in of new Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel's council of ministers is beginning, with Rajendra Trivedi, who resigned as Assembly Speaker earlier today, and four BJP ministers taking the oath together. The ceremony takes place a day after it was delayed, with posters announcing the event schedule being swiftly removed from Raj Bhavan.
This came after the BJP reportedly resolved to replace all 23 members of former Prime Minister Vijay Rupani's cabinet with younger people. The “no-repeat experiment” is believed to be followed by the party. Several ministers are furious, according to sources, because they were "informed over the phone that they would not be retained" under the "no-repeat" formula.
The outgoing minister will be placed before a new cabinet takes over on Thursday, according to senior party leaders. As per a local report, after the swearing-in of a fresh council of ministers was postponed for a few hours before being rescheduled for Thursday, the Gandhinagar residences of state BJP president C R Paatil and former CM Rupani were a busy place throughout the day as ministers and candidates for berths flitted in and out.
