India is a 'Union of States'. According to Article 164 of the Indian Constitution, the Chief Minister shall be appointed by the Governor. However, this does not imply that the Governor is free to appoint anyone as the Chief Minister.

The Governor of an Indian State is its de jure head, but de facto executive authority rests with the Chief Minister. 

At present, there are 29 Chief Ministers in India which includes 27 Chief Ministers from States and 2 from the Union Territories-- Delhi and Puducherry. On 26 July 2021, Karnataka CM B. S. Yediyurappa broke down at a two-year celebration of his government and announced his resignation.
