Naidu further told that Nitin Gadkari and Saroj Pandey have been appointed as the observers, they will go to Gujarat and hold meetings then only the party will take final call on the name of next Chief Minister of Gujarat.
"The legislature party (of the BJP in Gujarat) will meet tomorrow and choose the new Chief Minister. The person will be from Gujarat and will be an MLA," he said, in response to a query on whether a national level leader could get the post.
Ending rumours of Amit Shah taking over as the state head, Naidu said "no question of Amit Shah ji. Party wants him to lead us in national politics."
Under Patel, the saffron party had suffered a humiliated setback in civic polls. The BJP also antagonised its loyal vote bank of Patidars who have been demanding OBC quota and staged violent protests last year.
Off late, the flogging of Dalits at Una also caused a massive unrest, denting further the party's image.
Anandiben on Tuesday took to Facebook to request the BJP leadership to relieve her of the job, saying it was time for new leaders to take over as she is soon turning 75.
