Modi to resign as Gujarat CM May 21, Anandiben to succeed him
Prime Minister-elect Narendra Modi will submit his resignation as Gujarat chief minister to the governor at 3 p.m. Wednesday, party sources said.
Before he submits his resignation, Modi will attend a farewell meeting held in his honour by the BJP legislators.
Party sources said that after Modi submits his resignation, BJP legislators will hold a meeting to elect the successor to the PM-elect, appointed as such by President Pranab Mukherjee Tuesday.
While the BJP has not made an official announcement about who will succeed Modi, party sources said that Anandiben Patel, the revenue minister, was set to be the next chief minister of the state.
The new chief minister, once elected by the legislators, will stake claim to form the government at 6 p.m. Wednesday. Soon after, Modi will resign as the legislator from Maninagar.
The new chief minister will take oath on May 22 at 12.39 p.m.
