Gujarat Assembly Elections are scheduled to take place in November 2022. Prior to actually submitting his surprising resignation on September 11th, the BJP was supposed to be headed by CM Vijay Rupani in the 2022 Gujarat Elections, under whose Chief Ministership the BJP had secured the 2017 Assembly Elections.

According to initial accounts, his management of the Covid-19 Pandemic, which resulted in a health and economic nightmare for Gujarat, is the cause for his departure. Vijay Rupani was a soft-spoken chief minister, however, some political analysts believe that this added to his reputation as a ‘weak’ chief minister who enabled bureaucracy to overcome political leadership in important decisions. His weak political leadership is also said to be one of the reasons he fell out of favour with Prime Minister Modi. In an unexpected decision, Bhupendra Patel, a relatively obscure face contrasted to the names of large figures pursuing the CM position, was chosen as Gujarat’s upcoming chief minister.

The BJP will rely on Bhupendra Patel to guide them to triumph next year and assuage any anger/anti-incumbency against the BJP following more than two decades in power in Gujarat. Notwithstanding controlling the state for more than two decades, the Saffron party remains the overwhelming favourite to win the state, owing to PM Modi’s reputation in the state and the party’s strong organisation. The Congress party is still very much in disarray and lacks a leader in the state. It is failing to create excitement amongst its own workers and leaders, who believe that Delhi has abandoned them, and hence is unable to capitalise on any anti-incumbency sentiment. Its dismal performance in the last local elections exemplifies the party’s sorry status.

On the one hand, the AAP, buoyed by its second-place finish in the Surat Municipal Corporation Elections on its inaugural attempt, is doing everything it can to depict itself as the future of Gujarat as well as the only party capable of defeating the BJP, despite the fact that the Congress has been in opposition for a while. The MIM is also making gains among some of the Muslim population, which is losing trust in Congress’ capacity to win an election. According to the most recent poll, Patidar voters in Gujarat are unimpressed with CM Bhupendra Patel’s nomination of MLA from Ghatlodia assembly constituency (urban) in Ahmedabad City, which was formerly held by the former CM Anandiben Patel. He is regarded as a devotee of Anandiben Patel, and is devoted to her rather than Amit Shah. He, as her, is a Patidar, however a Kadva Patidar, not a Leuva Patidar.

Gujarat Legislative Assembly Exit Polls:

The former CM Rupani’s whole cabinet was ousted. Half of the cabinet, like the CM, are first-time MLAs, and the majority of the ministers (22) had no previous experience as a minister before being ushered in. According to accounts, this was undertaken to lessen the anti-incumbency that the former government had accumulated as a result of its management of the epidemic and the economy. Vijay Rupani was also perceived as having lost contact with the cadre and being too distant from the public

Bhupendra Patel was voted by Anandiben Patel’s constituency and is viewed as her party’s loyalist; Anandiben’s suggestion was one of the reasons he was nominated as CM. When Anandiben resigned, Amit Shah’s appointee Rupani was given a chance, and now Anandiben’s appointee has an opportunity.
The fact that he is a Kadva Patel must have aided, as no Kadva Patel has previously served as Gujarat’s Chief Minister, and that he is from Ahmedabad in Central Gujarat ensures that he will not enrage any castes, whereas appointing a Patel from Northern Gujarat would’ve enraged Thakores and Chaudhary OBCs.

Caste dynamics have been reworked in the new cabinet to give more weight to the OBC and SC/ST groups. South Gujarat has also seen a rise in its share at the expense of Saurashtra, according to C.R. Patil, the State BJP leader.
