Rupani and Patel were elected the leader and deputy leader of the state legislature party on Friday to lead the government as chief minister and deputy chief minister. 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.

"With the party's prominent Dalit, tribal and OBC leaders losing, Rupani is facing a challenge to build a new leadership for these sections in his government", said a senior BJP leader. Deputy CM Nitin Patel also took oath at the event.
"People from all walks of life joined the oath taking ceremony in Gandhinagar to bless the team that took oath today". Congress allies also got three more.
