Correct Answer : Option (B) - Gujarat
Vijay Rupani resigned as the Chief Minister of Gujarat on Saturday(11-09-2021) evening.
"I have resigned as chief minister of Gujarat," Rupani told reporters after meeting Governor Acharya Devvrat and submitting his resignation letter.
"I was given the opportunity to serve the state for five years. I will further do whatever is asked by my party. I thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for giving a common worker like me this opportunity to serve the people of the state as chief minister," Rupani said.
Rupani along with state BJP in-charge Bhupendra Yadav, Union ministers Purshottam Rupala and Mansukh Mandaviya, and state cabinet colleagues deputy CM Nitin Patel, Bhupndrasinh Chudasama, and Pradeepsinh Jadeja met the governor and submitted their resignations.
The senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader submitted his resignation letter to Governor Acharya Devvrat, on September 11, 2021 at the Raj Bhawan.
Rupani's resignation comes a year before the state heads to the polls in December 2022 to elect 182 members of the Gujarat Assembly.
He also becomes the third Chief Minister from BJP to step down in 2021, after Karnataka's BS Yediyurappa and Uttarakhand's Tirath Singh Rawat tendered their resignations.
