But as per the news and reports coming, It is almost clear that Gujarat’s senior Cabinet Minister Nitin Patel is set to take over as Chief Minister in place of Anandiben Patel.
The official announcement of Mr. Patel’s appointment will be made after the Bjp Legislative Party meeting at 4 p.m. “He is the final candidate and confirmed as next Chief Minister in place of Anandiben Patel,” said a senior leader said, adding “he is number 2 in the Cabinet.”
“Patel’s name was endorsed by the PM,” another party leader said. The 60-year-old Nitin Patel has been Minister since 1995 except in 2002-2007 when he lost the Assembly polls after the Gujarat riots. The party narrowed down on his name after the Patidar community and also outgoing Chief Minister Anandiben Patel rallied for him.
