The Congress leader P Chidambaram said BJP government in Gujarat will be voted of power in 2022.
Ex-Assembly Speaker Rajendra Trivedi, former state BJP president Jitu Vaghani were sworn in as Gujarat ministers. No names from the previous Vijay Rupani cabinet were inducted.
The rushed swearing-in of new Gujarat CM Bhupendra Patel took place following the dramatic exit of Vijay Rupani on Saturday. 59-year-old Patel was the only minister to have been sworn in.
Congress leader P Chidambaram said BJP is ‘busy replacing’ Chief Ministers in the states and asked when the party realized that they were ‘non-performing CMs’.
Bhupendra Patel is a first-term MLA and just like Narendra Modi, has never held a ministerial post in Gujarat before becoming the CM. Patel's inauguration ceremony was attended by Union Minister Amit Shah.
Patel won the 2017 Gujarat Legislative Assembly elections from Ghatlodia constituency, defeating Congress candidate Shashikant Patel. A qualified engineer, and also a builder, he is considered close to former chief minister Anandiben Patel
'I will hold consultations with Gujarat leaders, then the central leadership will take a decision,' said Prahlad Joshi. BJP general secretary Tarun Chaag has also reached Ahmedabad.
Congress alleged there are fratricidal wars and deep infighting in the BJP ruled states.
'Names of Patel, Faldu, Rupala and Mandaviya are being discussed. But it is impossible to say who will be the chief minister as the decision will be taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi,' a party leader said.
BJP is gearing up for elections in end-2022 and possibly did not want to go with the incumbent chief minister. The second big reason to ease out Rupani is the state’s response to Covid-19. Who will be the next Chief Minister?
MGNREGA was launched by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government in 2006.
The Bill will have provision for 3-10 years in jail and a fine of up to Rs 5 lakh if the accused is found guilty.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi made the remark while addressing the valedictory session of the Combined Commanders Conference.

The major announcement comes amid a poll rally in Vadodara ahead of the municipal corporation elections.
This was Rupani's third political rally during the day in Vadodara.
According to the CM Vijay Rupani, the word dragon for the fruit sounded inappropriate and so the Gujarat government had decided for the fruit to be called Kamalam.
'The name dragon fruit is not proper, and due to its name one thinks of China. So we have given it the name 'Kamalam'," Rupani said.
