Lucknow: The Bharatiya Janata Party’s Uttar Pradesh unit has been in the mood to refresh its office bearers.Therefore, 70% of its office-bearers are likely to be replaced before the 2024 general elections.
A number of changes have been made since Bhupendra Chaudhary’s appointment as the new BJP state chief. Outgoing General Secretary of the organisation, Sunil Bansal, and state chief Swatantra Dev Singh, endorsed the office bearers. Old faces will be replaced and a huge number of new or sidelined faces will be inducted because they are no longer a part of the state organisation.
According to sources, the UP BJP will undergo this restructuring process within one and a half months. The drill has begun under the direction of State President Bhupendra Singh and General Secretary Organisation Dharampal Singh. First, members of both the organisations and the government will be replaced.
There are currently 18 vice presidents in the state, with Arvind Kumar Sharma and Dayashankar Singh omitted from the team because both are ministers. Some vice-presidents are likely to get the post of general minister. Pankaj Singh and Brij Bahadur are two prominent names.
The general ministers include JPS Rathore, Ashwini Tyagi, Amarpal Maurya, Subrata Pathak, Anoop Gupta, and Priyanka Singh Rawat. Of these, JPS Rathore has become a minister. That’s why he has to vacate the post of General Secretary. Priyanka Rawat and Subrata Pathak are expected to fight the parliamentary elections, so their position in the organisation is uncertain.
Apart from these, major changes will also take place on other fronts, including the BJP Yuva Morcha, Mahila Morcha, and Minority Morcha. Along with this, changes will also occur in the important departments of the BJP. The new General Secretary of Organisation and the new State President will form a new team for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections for the BJP.
