·         Vijay Rupani has resigned from the post of Chief Minister of Gujarat. He submitted his resignation to Governor Acharya Devvrat.

·         The resignation comes after a flurry of developments in Gujarat following a meeting in Gandhinagar.

·         He reached Raj Bhavan soon after PM Modi inaugurated Sardardham Bhawan in Ahmedabad, Gujarat and performed 'Bhoomi Pujan' of Sardardham Phase-II Girls Hostel through video conferencing.

·         Mr. Rupani is the fourth BJP chief minister to step down in recent months; BS Yediyurappa resigned as Chief Minister of Karnataka in July and hit a double whammy in Uttarakhand, where Tirath Singh Rawat resigned barely four months after replacing Trivendra Rawat.
