13 years of Modi rule, not 2 years of Anandiben are responsible for Gujarat burning. Sacrificing the scapegoat won’t save the BJP

Ending months of speculation, Gujarat’s first woman chief minister Anandiben Patel on Monday offered to quit in keeping with the BJP’s “laudable tradition” of leaders vacating their posts as they turn 75.
The national BJP parliamentary board headed by party president Amit Shah will hold a meeting in Delhi on Tuesday, in which Anandiben Patel’s resignation will be formally accepted.
