Those nominated as Cabinet ministers on Tuesday include Bhupendrasinh Chudasama, RC Faldu, Kaushik Patel, Saurabh Patel (Dalal), Ganpat Vasava, Jayesh Radadiya, Dilip Viraji Thakor and Ishwarbhai R. Parmar.

Sources said senior party leaders of Gujarat including Rupani, Patel and state BJP chief Jitu Vaghani had a meeting with Amit Shah on Monday to finalize the names for the new cabinet.

Union Ministers Ravi Shankar Prasad, Nitin Gadkari, Rajnath Singh, Ram Vilas Paswan, Dr Harsh Wardhan and Ananth Kumar graced the swearing-in ceremony. Nitin Patel was once again sworn in as Deputy Chief Minister of Gujarat.

Rupani took oath along with nine cabinet-rank ministers, including Patel, and 10 ministers of state at the ceremony held near the state secretariat.

BJP ally Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar also attended along with his deputy Sushil Kumar Modi.

The sharp increase in number of Patidar faces in the Council could be attributed to the fact that BJP had to suffer a dip of 16 seats in its tally as the its seat share in 182 seat assembly went down from 115 to 99 in recent elections. The NCP, which fought alone, got one seat and Independents won two.
