The party sources also confirmed that there will be few organizational changes in West Bengal BJP.

“Several existing office bearers of the State unit such vice presidents and general secretaries are likely to lose their posts in this reshuffle. They are likely to be replaced with young and combative leaders who have successfully worked in districts,” said the party sources.

Meanwhile, sources also said that the Central leadership decided to appoint Sukanta Majumdar as president to strengthen the saffron party’s hold in North Bengal.

Even as the state is inching towards the high stakes Bhawanipore bypoll scheduled on September 30, BJP’s party president was changed and Sukanta Majumdar was given the baton, while Dilip Ghosh has been made the national vice-president of the party. Amid all this, young MP and former minister, Babul Supriyo, announced his quit move from BJP and joined the TMC. The party was yet to get over the Mayhem in the Assembly polls when such changes are taking place.
