BJP Considers Increasing General Secretaries To Cover Weaker Sections

  • tags: no_tag

    • Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) is considering increasing the number of General Secretaries from seven to nine to cover weaker sections including women better. The move, according to them, would also cover the country better geographically.
      Currently the Party president is entitled to appoint seven Genaral Secretaries and Nine Vice-Presidents. There is, however, no restriction on the number of secretaries.
    • According to sources, his team of officials will be a healthy composition of young minds and experienced people. Certain names seem quite certain, Ram Lal as the general secretary in-charge of organisation, Anant Kumar as the senior-most general secretary and Thawar Chand Gehlot as a general secretary.
    • Ex- Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje, ex- Goa CM Manohar Parrikar, Ravi Shankar Prasad and Dharmendra Pradhan are likely new comers as general secretaries. Ex Union Minister Syed Shahnawaz Hussain and Amritsar MP Navjot Singh Sidhu are also likely to find place in his team.
      Anurag Singh Thakur, Hamirpur MP, may lead BJP’s ‘Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha’ despite facing tough competition from MP Varun Gandhi.
