Chief Minister of Gujarat Vijay Rupani resigned today a year before the state Assembly elections. After submitting his resignation to Governor Acharya Devvrat, Rupani said he had willingly stepped down from the post after a decision in this regard was taken by the BJP in the “larger interest of Gujarat”.
Speaking with media outside Raj Bhavan after giving his resignation, Rupani said, “With my resignation, the party’s new leadership will get an opportunity. And we will all take Gujarat to new heights under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”
“It is a natural process in our party. The party worker gets different responsibilities at different times. We do not call it a post, we call it a responsibility. Now, I will shoulder whatever responsibility the party gives me.” he added.
