Governor OP Kohli will administer the oath to Rupani and his ministers.

Winning Gujarat for the sixth time in a row was crucial for the BJP as it showed people of the state, mostly traders, gave a thumbs-up to Modi's two key economic reforms - scrapping of higher denomination currency notes and introduction of a unified tax regime.

The swearing-in ceremony in Gandhinagar was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah, a host of central ministers and chief ministers of all NDA-ruled states. Since 2012 he has been a cabinet Minister.

BJP won the recently held assembly elections in the western state where Modi had been the chief minister from 2001 till 2014 when he became the prime minister after the party swept to power in the general elections decimating the Congress party.

Another new face as cabinet minister was Ishwarbhai Parmar, who was a Minster of State in the Rupani government.

Once a BJP fortress, it has swung against the party these elections, but has managed maximum representation with seven ministers. Tribal leader and former Assembly speaker Ganpatsinh Vasava too took oath as Cabinet minister. Sources said that senior party leaders met Amit Shah to finalise the names of the ministers in Rupani's cabinet.

The 20 ministers who took oath in the newly formed council of ministers in Gujarat on Tuesday, include six Patidar leaders, and only one woman.

"Attending today's oath taking ceremony in Gujarat brought back memories of the ceremonies in 2001, 2002, 2007 and 2012 when I got the opportunity to serve Gujarat as CM", he said. The bond between Gujarat and BJP is extremely special.

Rupani and Nitin Patel were elected as the leader and deputy leader, respectively, of the BJP legislature party at its meeting on December 22. "I am confident that Gujarat will continue its forward march on road to development and prosperity under the able leadership of Rupani".
