Gujarat gets brand new govt under CM Bhupendra Patel: Full list of ministers

The Gujarat government, under the leadership of Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel, has got a new avatar with the induction of 24 fresh faces in the cabinet. No minister from the earlier Vijay Rupani-led ministry was inducted in the new team.

First-term MLA Bhupendra Patel was sworn in Gujarat chief minister on Monday (September 13)  after Vijay Rupani’s surprise exit from the post, a year ahead of the Assembly polls. Patel’s elevation to the coveted post is being attributed to his closeness to former Gujarat chief minister and current Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel.
