Vijay Rupani sworn in as CM of Gujarat

Three of the ministers in the newly-formed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Gujarat have criminal cases against them, according to a report by the Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) released on Tuesday.

Vijay Rupani, who took oath as the 16th chief minister of Gujarat on Tuesday in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and host of dignitaries, appears to have done a balancing act in his new ministry.

Not just 18 NDA chief ministers but also BJP patriarch LK Advani on the stage for the swearing-in ceremony of the Vijay Rupani cabinet.

This is Rupani's second stint as Chief Minister of Gujarat.

The new government led by Rupani took the oath of office and secrecy at a grand ceremony in Gandhinagar. Naranpura MLA Kaushik Patel, who is seen as close to BJP national president Amit Shah, has been sworn-in as Cabinet minister.
