It Was Amit Shah, Not Age, Say Anandiben Supporters A Day After She Quit

A day after Gujarat chief minister Anandiben Patel resigned on Facebook, the focus is now on who the BJP will pick to replace her in the crucial run-up to assembly elections next year.  The state’s health minister Nitin Patel and Gujarat’s BJP chief Vijay Rupani are said to be front-runners. Party chief Amit Shah said the party’s highest decision making body, the parliamentary board, will decide who will take over from Anandiben, who said she was quitting because she turns 75 soon and respects the party’s principle of retiring older leaders to promote younger ones.
