BJP making organisational changes ahead of 2024 Lok Sabha polls

New Delhi,11/8: After successful stints in Uttar Pradesh, the Bharatiya Janata Party is sending the party’s general secretary (organisation) from the state, Sunil Bansal to tackle West Bengal, where the party is entangled in a tight contest with the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress government, as well as Telangana and Odisha, both states the BJP considers crucial to move ahead beyond the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Bansal has been appointed national general secretary in charge of the three states. Bansal, who has long been the sangathan mantri or general secretary (organisation) in the UP state unit, is now formally part of the BJP’s party structure and is the party’s key strategist behind the BJP’s wins in the 2017 as well as the 2022 assembly elections.


Bansal’s role in UP will be taken up by Dharampal Singh, who was general secretary (organisation) Jharkhand. He was replaced in Jharkhand by Karamveer Singh, who was the co-organisational secretary in the Uttar Pradesh state unit.
