  • Vijay Rupani Gujarat CM

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah will attend the swearing-in ceremony along with the chief ministers of 18 states where the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its allies are in power.

Prime Minister Modi, BJP president Amit Shah, chief ministers of all BJP-ruled states and those governed by NDA associates are presented in the ceremony, Gujarat BJP chief Jitu Vaghani said.

Mr Vijay Rupani has been sworn-on as Chief Minister of Gujarat for the second time.

Cabinet ministers: Deputy CM Nitin Patel (Mehsana), Bhupendrasinh Chudasama (Dholka), RC Faldu (Jamnagar South), Kaushik Patel (Naranpura), Saurabh Patel (Botad), Ganpat Vasava (Mangrol), Jayesh Radadiya (Jetpur), Dilip Thakor (Chanasma) and Ishwar Parmar (Bardoli).


Patel's continuance as Rupani's deputy indicates that the influential Patidar community will be well represented in the new Gujarat government. Several union ministers including Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari, and Ravi Shankar Prasad are also expected to attend Vijay Rupani's swearing-in ceremony. A delegation of BJP leaders had met Governor OP Kohli on Saturday to stake the claim to form the government. Yogi Adityanath, Vasundhara Raje, Raman Singh, Sarbananda Sonawal, Raghubar Das, Devendra Fadnavis, Manohar Parrikar and Manohar Lal Khattar were in attendance.

The BJP managed to win sixth consecutive state assembly election with 99 seats in the 182-member house.

Apart from Rupani and Nitin Patel, six to nine Cabinet and around 15 ministers of state are likely to swear in, saffron party sources informed.

Keshubhai Patel, Shankersinh Vaghela and Anandiben Patel were also seen sharing dais with the host of BJP leaders.
