Gujarat Speaker Rajendra Trivedi resigns just before swearing in

Just hours before swearing-in, Gujarat Speaker Rajendra Trivedi resigned from his position amid rumors that BJP has decided to try new faces.

Earlier, the ruling BJP party had announced that the swearing-in ceremony would be held on Wednesday afternoon and preparations for the same had started at the governor’s house in the state capital.

Gujarat Speaker Rajendra Trivedi, who resigned from the post, has been inducted as minister in the cabinet of Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel.

Rajendra Trivedi, the Raopura MLA, has been the Speaker of the Gujarat assembly since February 2018. The reasons for his leaving are still unclear and it is reported that he suddenly submitted his resignation to the Deputy Speaker, announcing his intention to quit with immediate effect.

According to sources, the BJP leadership has decided to try new faces this time and drop almost all the past ministers, even some senior ones, who were part of the previous Rupani government. However, there was no official word from the BJP about it.

The swearing-in ceremony was originally announced to be held on Wednesday afternoon and arrangements for it had started at the governor’s house in the state capital.

However, the program was later dropped. Banners of the swearing-in ceremony were also taken down. Neither the BJP nor the state government gave any reasons for the postponement.

There are unconfirmed reports of infighting in the Gujarat wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party.
