Became an MLA for the first time Bhupendra Patel sworn in as Gujarat Chief Minister on Monday Took. Vijay Rupani had abruptly resigned two days ago, almost a year before the Assembly elections. After the same change of leadership in Gujarat, now there is talk of a change of leadership in the BJP-ruled state again. The BJP-ruled state has seen a change of chief minister for the fifth time in the last six months as Patel was replaced by Patel. As the discussion on the change of leadership begins, Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jairam Thakur will meet senior party leaders in Delhi today. Thakur had returned to Shimla from Delhi two days ago. He had also met the central leadership. But now that he has been called back from Delhi, discussions of a change of leadership have begun in Himachal. Thakur’s invitation in Delhi is being linked to Gujarat. Rupani had resigned from her post of Chief Minister only after being told by the Union Minister.
Congress says post will go
After the change of Chief Minister of Gujarat, Jairam Thakur was called back to Delhi within 48 hours of his arrival in Shimla. The Congress has started criticizing the Chief Minister over this. The Himachal Pradesh Congress is saying that the Chief Minister will be removed from office. However, the BJP has rejected this claim. He reiterated that the BJP has already made it clear that it will contest the 2022 elections under Thakur’s leadership. Thakur left for Delhi in the morning.
It was in Delhi last week
Chief Minister Jairam Thakur visited Delhi on Wednesday, September 8 last week. On Wednesday, he met Union Health Minister and BJP national president J. P. Nadda was also visited. On Thursday, Jairam Thakur had invited President Ramnath Kovind to a special session of the Himachal Pradesh Assembly. After that, the Chief Minister had gone to Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh. He left Delhi for Shimla on Sunday. However, calling him back to Delhi has sparked discussions.
The BJP changed five chief ministers in six months
After coming to power at the Center in 2014, the BJP, which has avoided changing the chief ministers of the states, has changed five chief ministers in the last six months. The BJP has changed the Chief Minister only out of resentment of the people, loss of confidence in the party leadership or blame for inefficiency. In Uttarakhand, Trivendra Singh Rawat was replaced by Tirath Singh Rawat in March. Rawat, who is a member of the Lok Sabha, was forced to resign in just 114 days as he could not be elected to the Assembly in six months. In less than four months, the BJP replaced two chief ministers in Uttarakhand.
When the BJP returned to power in Assam last May, it replaced Sarvanand Sonowal with Hemant Bishwa Sarma. The party had forced Karnataka Chief Minister Yeddyurappa to resign on the same day he completed his two-year term as chief minister for the fourth time. In Gujarat, Vijay Rupani has to step down from the post of Chief Minister as the Assembly elections are coming to a close.
