Anandiben replaced Modi in May 2014 after the latter went on to become the prime minister of the country. The new chief minister, the third BJP leader to lead the state since 1995, struggled to deal with the massive Patidar agitation for reservation that started last year, posing a serious threat to the saffron party's vote-bank.
