Former Gujarat chief minister Anandiben Patel reached Bhopal from Ahmedabad on a chartered bus on Monday for her swearing in as the governor of Madhya Pradesh on January 23.

Patel, 76, sources say, also refused an official car when she was greeted by the Madhya Pradesh administrators in Bhopal.

Chief Justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court Justice Hemant Gupta will administer the oath of office to Patel at the Raj Bhavan on January 23, a Raj Bhavan official said.

She was travelling on the bus, with 30-odd passengers, said to be her family and friends.

On her way to Bhopal, she stopped at Ujjain and offered prayers at the Mahakal temple, another official said.

Patel was the chief minister of Gujarat from 2014, when incumbent Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, to August, 2016, when she resigned the post.
