As earlier this week, Vijay Rupani resigned from the post of the Chief Minister of Gujarat, the BJP appointed Bhupendra Patel as the new CM. With this appointment, also came a completely new cabinet of ministers.
The oath taking ceremony of the new cabinet that was to originally take place on Wednesday, had to be deferred after sources pointed out that differences on the appointment of a completely new cabinet, emerged.
Sources have stated that several senior ministers who fear they are being dropped are not willing to give in. And among them is Nitin Patel who is fighting to keep his place as Deputy Chief Minister.
