GPP elects office-bearers, Keshubhai is party president

Ahmedabad: Leaders of the recently launched Gujarat Parivartan Party (GPP) on Monday announced the new office-bearers of the political faction. According to a statement issued by the GPP, while Keshubhai Patel will be the chief of the party, it will have three senior vice-presidents including Kashiram Rana, Suresh Mehta, and AK Patel.
    GPP also declared that Gordhan Zadphia and Fakirbhai Chauhan will be the general secretaries of the party. The appointments were made by the founder president Keshubhai Patel. The former BJP chief minister also appointed K D Jeswani, Thakorbhai Desai and Tulsibhai Yadav as party vice-presidents.
    Patel has earlier this month resigned from the primary membership of the BJP and floated the GPP. He had also announced that the party would contest all 182 seats in the forthcoming elections and would make all efforts to see that CM Narendra Modi was not voted back to power.
    Meanwhile, Siddhartbhai Parmar, Arvindbhai Patel, Vikrambhai Chauhan, Dhirubhai Bhimani, Lalitbhai Suhagia, Dudabhai Ahir Somabhai Bhil, Gitaben Patolia and Mukundbhai Joshi were elected as party secretaries.
