Delhi BJP may turn to old guard.
THE Delhi BJP has begun a hunt for new faces in the state unit -- a move aimed to improve the functioning of the party and redrawing its future strategy. Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari has sought a list of 50 BJP leaders, including former office bearers and those sidelined in the party, in recent times.
Two Delhi BJP leaders have been asked to prepare the list that will be verified by South Delhi MP Ramesh Bidhuri. Subsequently, Tiwari will hold a meeting with selected workers and leaders, which sources said, might be included in the Delhi BJP team of office bearers.
A decision in this regard was taken on Friday. It was decided that a state office bearer and another leader will prepare the list of former state and district office bearers who will attend the meeting. Tiwari has instructed the meeting to be convened before June 25.
Sources said the exercise indicated a possible reshuffle in the Delhi BJP in wake of an adverse report of BJP's central observers after the MCD polls. The central observers not only found office bearers inexperienced and under- performing, but also pointed out financial irregularities.
" The Delhi BJP wants to utilise all its resources and experience of its senior leaders in a constructive way.
This will strengthen the organisation ahead of the next Assembly election.
A list of around 50 former office bearers will be prepared and they will meet Tiwari before the end of next week," said a party leader.
According to a party insider, a number of BJP leaders who were sidelined in the present team, have years of experience in organisational skills and had performed when responsibilities were given to them in previous teams. " Leaders who held positions in the state unit or as district presidents and general secretaries will be called for the meeting," he said.
To avoid over- crowding and turn it into a fruitful exercise, it has been decided that the past record of the leaders will be considered. A proper scrutiny will be done, a leader said.
