Days after Bhupendra Patel took charge as Gujarat’s Chief Minister, his new Cabinet took oath at the Raj Bhawan in Gandhinagar on Thursday.

A total of 24 ministers were sworn in, who will attend their first meeting as the new Cabinet at 4 pm Thursday.

Meanwhile, Nimaben Acharya, an MLA from Bhuj, has been named the protem speaker of the Legislative Assembly, following the resignation of Rajendra Trivedi hours ahead of the swearing-in ceremony.
