The state president of BJP was to be elected in December. But the party postponed elections due to the public awareness campaign in support of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Meanwhile, the names of potential contenders were discussed in a meeting of the party’s core group at the state BJP office over a panel of state presidents in the presence of central leaders. The names of the panel were sent to the central leadership.
Brahmin leader can get command from Kumaon
The election of the state president is expected to be unanimous. The party will elect a new captain based on regional and ethnic equations. Presently, the state government is in the hands of Trivendra Singh Rawat. Rawat is from Garhwal and is a Kshatriya.
Now the command of the organization is likely to be handed over from Kumaon to a Brahmin leader. On this basis, apart from MP and State President Ajay Bhatt, the names of former cabinet ministers and MLAs Bansidhar Bhagat, Kailash Joshi, Kedar Joshi, and Kailash Pant are in discussion. But Ajay Bhatt wants to devote more and more time to his constituency.
