Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani resigns


 In a surprising political development, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Saturday submitted his resignation to governor Acharya Devvrat.

"I have resigned from the post of Gujarat Chief Minister," said Rupani on Saturday to media persons at Raj Bhavan in Gandhinagar after meeting Governor.

I have conveyed my wishes to work in party organization under the leadership of Prime Minister and under the guidance of BJP chief, said Rupani.

Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani today resigned along with his council of ministers, a day after Governor O P Kohli dissolved the legislative assembly following the recently-concluded polls, paving the way for formation of a new government.

Rupani, accompanied by deputy chief minister Nitin Patel and other ministers visited Raj Bhavan in Gandhinagar and handed over their resignation letters to the governor.

"Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and his entire council of ministers have tendered their resignations to Governor O P Kohli who has accepted them," Patel told reporters outside Raj Bhavan.

In the recently concluded polls, BJP retained power by winning 99 seats in the 182-member Assembly while the Congress claimed 77. Six seats went to others, including three independents.
