Rupani will be sworn in again as the Gujarat CM by Governor OP Kohli at an oath-taking ceremony at the Gandhinagar Sachivalaya Ground in Gujarat's capital.
The new faces that were inducted were Kaushikbhai Jamanadas Patel, who had served as Minister of State for energy, urban development departments and cabinet minister of energy, in the earlier BJP governments.
Vijay Rupani today took office as Gujarat chief minister for a second straight term, after a hard-won victory over the Congress, at a glittering ceremony attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and a galaxy of BJP leaders but boycotted by the Congress. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah and chief ministers of other BJP-ruled states attended the ceremony.

Besides Patel, the other Cabinet-rank ministers sworn-in were - Bhupendrasinh Chudasama, RC Faldu, Kaushik Patel, Saurabh Patel, Ganpatsinh Vasava, Jayesh Radadiya, Dilip Thakor and Ishwar Parmar. The lean cabinet will give Rupani the scope for expansion later.
The Gujarat poll results had shown that while the BJP had faced a rout in Patidar dominated constituencies, it had managed to win several seats by consolidating voters from non-Patidar castes, shedding its traditional votebank in search of a new combine.
The average assets of the 20-member council of ministers headed by Vijay Rupani is Rs 13.34 crore, with 18 of the 20 ministers being crorepatis. Apart from that senior BJP leader L.K. Advani and Union Ministers were also present in the function. Congress allies also got three more. The bond between Gujarat and BJP is extremely special.
