Vijay Rupani: Profile, Wife and Family

Vijay Rupani is the new Chief Minister of Gujarat. He has replaced Anandi Ben Patel. He was preferred over powerful state BJP leader Nitin Patel, who has been designated as the Deputy Chief Minister. The elevation of Vijay Rupani is little bit shocking, but not out of logic. The party can’t afford to lose the upcoming Assembly Election and needs a face which can unite the party. It has to see that Patel community can’t go away from it, but also to retain the support base among other communities. The Dalit issues are already being given disproportionate media coverage and hence a honest and clean leader at the helm was required. Vijay Rupani filled that slot.
