Union ministers will be transferred to the states as part of the BJP’s reorganisation to prepare for 2024.

The BJP began an organisational overhaul on Tuesday, appointing new state unit heads in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Punjab, and Jharkhand in preparation for the Lok Sabha elections next year.

This likewise makes way for changes in the Association Chamber of Priests with the arrangement of pastor G Kishan Reddy as the party head of survey bound Telangana and the probable redeployment of additional Focal clergymen as state unit presidents in Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Kerala and Jammu and Kashmir.

In addition to Reddy, the party announced that former Union minister D Purandeswari would lead the Andhra BJP and that former Chief Minister Babulal Marandi would lead its Jharkhand division.

Sunil Jakhar, a former Congress leader who joined the BJP last year, will lead the party in Punjab. Etela Rajender, a leader of the OBC, was also appointed by the party as the chairperson of its election management committee in Telangana.

Sources close to the BJP claim that the organisation’s strategy to intensify and coordinate its preparations for crucial state elections and the Lok Sabha elections includes the appointment of Union ministers.

There is discussion of a reshuffle in the Association Chamber of Priests with new faces being enlisted. According to party leaders, state leaders like the current Gujarat BJP chief C R Paatil may be brought to Delhi.

According to sources, the party requires more hands on deck in light of the elections. The public authority’s job in the political decision is restricted yet the association must be completely dynamic,” a BJP pioneer said.

“The new arrangements are pointed toward limiting potential misfortunes and augmenting gains for the Lok Sabha races. The leader stated, “The central leadership wants to bring up new leaders even in BJP-ruled states.” Some appointments could have been made with an eye toward the future.

The BJP, which so far has generally delayed in selecting horizontal passages (pioneers who went along with it from different gatherings) to pivotal positions, presently appears to have changed its stand. Due to the importance placed on such leaders, the most recent reorganisation is significant. While Purandeswari was a member of the Congress and served as a Union minister in the UPA government, Jakhar and Rajender joined the BJP after departing from the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) and the Congress, respectively. 2014 marked her switch to the BJP. Rajender was K Chandrashekar Rao’s right-hand man and leader of the BRS in Telangana, and Marandi was the Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik)’s founder. The BJP’s attempt to establish a strong local leadership, which it currently lacks in several important states, is also seen in the revamp.
