Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Saturday resigned from the post, over a year before the state goes to polls.
Elections are scheduled in December 2022 to elect 182 members of the Gujarat Assembly.
Rupani (65) was sworn in as chief minister – his second stint as CM – in December 2017.
“I have resigned as chief minister of Gujarat,” Rupani told reporters after meeting Governor Acharya Devvrat and submitting his resignation letter.
“I was given the opportunity to serve the state for five years. I will further do whatever is asked by my party,” Rupani said.—(PTI)
