Gandhinagar:New ministers of the Bhupendra Patel government in Gujarat are going to the oath of office and secrecy on Wednesday afternoon, a state BJP spokesperson said. The swearing-in ceremony will take place after 2 pm in Gandhinagar.
While the names of new ministers are yet to be declared, speculations are rife that Patel would induct many new faces in his cabinet, and several old-timers may have to vacate the space for young leaders.
According to reports, all 22 ministers of the Vijay-Rupani government will be removed. Further, Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel, state Cabinet minister RC Faldu and Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama are also likely to be dropped from the Gujarat cabinet.
Gujarat BJP in-charge Bhupender Yadav has been holding marathon meetings in Gandhinagar since the last two days to finalise the names of those to be included in the new cabinet.
