New Gujarat CM

Nitin Patel is being made the Chief Minister of Gujarat primarily to placate the Patidar community which is already at loggerheads with the BJP . Had a non Patel been appointed, the party’s problems would have increased manifold. It was possible only during Narendra Modi’s time in Gujarat when neither the Chief Minister nor the Party Chief belonged to the Patel community and yet the community stood by Modi. Influential leaders like Keshubhai Patel failed to bring down Modi’s support base but with Anandiben Patel, the narratives changed completely. Even though they may not be too happy by making Nitin Patel the CM of Gujarat, Narendra Modi and Amit Shah have no other alternative left for them.
