A day after the exit of Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and his cabinet, the state BJP legislators are meeting today to discuss his successor. Mr Rupani stepped down yesterday without citing any reason -- a move that came as a surprise to many. The state's development, he said, should carry on under "new leadership" and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "guidance".
