One day after the Dalit Mahasammelan that turned out a success in Ahmedabad; Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel resigned. In fact this is the second such protest, the other one being the Hardik Patel-led protest on reservation issue that rocked Gujarat around the same time last year. In fact the decision to resign came after the rally on Sunday that put the BJP government on notice, and the community said they will teach BJP a lesson during the next elections. What spurred the mass protests is the flogging of a Dalit family by the self-proclaimed cow vigilante group for skinning a cow.


Political experts and historians have already started comparing her resignation to that of Keshubhai Patel in 2001, when he resigned bowing to pressure after having lost badly in by-elections. The party general secretary Narendra Modi was then made the chief minister of Gujarat. He later won the election that were conducted post-riots, and rest in history.
