Struggling to make a mark

Nadda considers his options
Vol. 13 | ISSUE 11 | FEBRUARY 2020

Jagat-Prakash-NaddaJAGAT Prakash Nadda, the Party President of the BJP, has a major task ahead in the reshuffle of office bearers. It is to be seen whether Nadda will have his own team or keep working under the shadow of Amit Shah. Nadda is not a mass leader and does not have much grip even in his home state of Himachal Pradesh but he is an experienced hand as he has been active since his student days in the RSS and Akhil Bhartiya Vidhyarthi Parishad. The BJP has lost Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and recently Delhi. So, a change in office bearers is imminent to pump fresh air in the party. Ram Madhav, Bhupendra Yadav, Murlidhar Rao, Anil Jain, Arun Singh, and Kailash Vijayvargiya who are state in-charges but have not fought an election. Ram Lal who was the General Secretary of BJP till recently was transferred and BL Shantosh was brought in as General Secretary Organisation. Vasundhara RajeScindia, Shivraj Singh Chauhan, and Dr. Raman Singh, Uma Bharati appear on the party’s website as Vice-Presidents but they have been completely sidelined. Nadda is moving cautiously, but he is appears to be under pressure as he has again appointed the trusted lieutenant Chandrakant Patil as President of Maharashtra state unit ignoring former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. Sources disclosed that Ram Madhav and Kailash Vijayvargiya are on the watch list of the BJP leadership and they may be allotted some other work. Nadda is being reminded by his well wishers that it’s Amit Shah and Narendra Modi’s party and he has limited options. The only consolation for Nadda is that he has very good equation with the Prime Minister and in any eventuality of an onslaught by Shah, he has a saviour in Modi.gfiles end logo
