Vijay Rupani, Gujarat's chief minister, has resigned.
Vijay Rupani, Gujarat's chief minister, has resigned, paving the way for a change of guard in the state, where the ruling BJP faces key Assembly elections next year.
Mr. Rupani tendered his resignation to Governor Acharya Devrat. Mr. Rupani added, "I have resigned after conveying my wishes to the party leadership to let me work in the organisation."
He also thanked the party's high command for enabling him to stay as Gujarat's chief minister for just over five years.
As BJP general secretary B. L. Santosh is said to have been holding meetings at the State party headquarters, the party is supposed to unveil his replacement by evening.
Given the apparent lacklustre administration of C.M. Rupani, whose performance came up short of the party's high expectations, the ruling party had been considering changing of guard in Gujarat.
Mr. Rupani took over as Chief Minister in August 2016 after C. M. Anandiben Patel, who is presently the Governor of Uttar Pradesh, stepped down.
