The meet is expected to finalise the name of the new chief minister of Gujarat after Vijay Rupani stepped down from the post on Saturday.
Probable candidates for the Chief Minister’s post in Gujarat will be discussed at the meet.
“A series of meetings will be held today. All MPs, MLAs, will also meet at the party head office Shree Kamalam to discuss the leadership issue,” informed Yagnesh Dave State Media Convener.
Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar reached Gujarat a few hours ago as BJP’s central observer.
He was accompanied by BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh. Soon after, both of them met other party leaders at state BJP chief C R Paatil’s residence in Gandhinagar.
Union Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change of India Bhupender Yadav also attended the meeting.
Union Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Pralhad Joshi is also likely to arrive in the state later during the day.
He has also been appointed as BJP’s central observer along with Tomar.
“I will hold consultations with Gujarat leaders, and then the central leadership will take a decision,” said Joshi while speaking to reporters in Hubli in Karnataka. — ANI
