New Delhi, December 31
Feeling the political heat amid farmers’ protests and a setback in the recent mayoral polls in Haryana, the BJP has brought in key party veteran Saudan Singh to shoulder organisational responsibilities in Punjab and its neighbouring states, besides beefing up party’s Dalit outreach.
The saffron party today appointed Singh as the vice-president of the organisation with the responsibilities of giving “special attention” to Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Chandigarh.
Singh, who will now have his base in Chandigarh, was the joint general secretary (organisation) earlier. The BJP has also appointed party veteran V Satish as “sangathak” (organiser). He will take care of coordination with the party’s parliamentary office. — TNS
