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.

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.

Once a BJP fortress, it has swung against the party these elections, but has managed maximum representation with seven ministers.

While the BJP party's performance in Gujarat was diminished as compared to last time, Congress emerged stronger, securing 77 seats. Returning to the state's top executive's chair for a second term after leading his party to a narrow victory in the recently concluded Gujarat assembly polls, Rupani also inducted 19 ministers into his council, with Nitin Patel returning as his deputy.

Nicholls's 83 came off 62 balls and included two sixes and seven fours, as New Zealand finished on 325 for 6 in 50 overs. Ashley Nurse (27) did play a hand down the order but by that time it was nearly over for the Caribbeans.

Some heavyweights like Porbandar MLA Babu Bokhiriya and Thakkarbapa Nagar MLA Vallabh Kakadiya who held the water resources and transport portfolios respectively in the earlier government have been dropped from the newly sworn-in cabinet. However, Kakadiya's age - he is 73 years old - seems to have gone against him.

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.

Pradip Jadeja ( Vatva), Parbat Patel (Tharad), Jaydrathsinh Parmar (Haalol), Ramanlal Patkar (Umbergaon), Parshottam Solanki (Bhavnagar (R)), Ishwar Patel (Ankleshwar), Vasan Ahir ( Anjar), Kishor Kanani (Varachha), Bachu Khabad (Devgadhbaria) and Vibhavari Dave ( Bhavnagar (E)) took oath as minister of state. The success of Congress was largely credited to the extensive campaigning conducted by party President Rahul Gandhi.
