Inviting civil engineers, architects and real-estate players to approach the Gujarat government with their problems, Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel on Saturday said he was not rushing into decisions, but taking it easy.

“Somebody here was referring to Twenty-Twenty (reference to game of cricket). We are not playing any Twenty-Twenty. We are taking it easy. We have to do our work and Bharatiya Janata Party has worked as a family,” said Patel as he unveiled the diamond jubilee celebrations of the Gujarat Institute of Civil Engineers and Architects (GICEA).

It was Patel’s predecessor and former chief minister Vijay Rupani, who at several instances, drew the T20 analogy about his own style of governance. Rupani had said that as a chief minister, he was looking to play T20 cricket to quickly accomplish various tasks and objectives.

“There is no point rushing in. Things cannot be changed in a day,” the CM quipped on Saturday. Talking about his team, he said, “The excitement is double when the appointments are new. At times, even we think, let’s change this or that tomorrow. But it does not happen that way.”

Patel, who has been associated with real-estate business and is a member of GICEA, asked the body to approach his government with their grievances. “A lot of people here personally know me. Problems could be brought before us. We are there to solve problems,” he added.

Leading builders, including Sun Builders head NK Patel and Bakeri Group’s Anil Bakeri were present at the event. GICEA president Dr Vatsal Patel wished CM Patel manages to secure 180-182 seats in the state assembly polls slated to be held next year.
