Gujarat may get a new CM before General Elections

Gujarat is probably set to see a new regime soon in wake of the General elections in the country. If the plans go well then before the polls, a major revamp in the government is on the cards with two leaders Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel or senior BJP leader Mansukh Mandvia may be the new face of the Government.

According to the sources within the party, after the elections in a few states, the Bhartiya Janata Party does not want to take any chances in the Lok Sabha polls.

The government of Gujarat has well understood the power of the Patidars after the sudden rise of the Patidar Andolan in the state which took the entire country by storm.

With the sudden rise of leaders from the Patidar Andolan Hardik Patel or OBC leader Jignesh Mevani, the BJP state cannot take any chances hence they have now decided to revamp both the government and the state leadership. A decision in this regard expected to be taken by December 2018.

A close door meeting of the BJP state officials was recently convened in Ahmedabad to finalise the strategy for the next general elections. Surprising all, the Gujarat Loksabha Election committee was formed with names of Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and BJP state President Jitu Vaghani's name missing.

They will just oversee the election affairs. This decision of the high profile leaders towards most prominent state functionaries has resulted in whispering all around. Though nobody has come up openly but many an eyebrows are being raised on the decision.

The Patidar community leaders may be the direct beneficiary with plum posts might being offered to the Patidar leaders to get the votes from the Patidar community.

Both Nitin Patel and Mandvia belong to the Patidar community.

The Gujarat Election Committee now has 11 members including Deputy CM Nitin Patel, Central Minister Purshottam Rupala, Mansukh Mandvia, Gujarat minister Bhupendra Singh Chudasama, Kaushik Patel, Ganpat Vasava, State BJP secretary Bharat Singh Parmar, BJP vice president Bhargav Bhatt, IK Jadeja, former minister Shanker Chaudhary and former MLA Hirabhai Solanki have been included in the list.
