Earlier, Wednesday was a shocking day in Gujarat politics. The posters were suddenly torn down after the stage was set for the swearing in of the new cabinet. The swearing-in was postponed at the last minute. The BJP, which has been in power for the last 25 years, had to take this step for the first time due to the displeasure of its ministers.
