BJP reshuffles Rajasthan top team

With less than six months left for Rajasthan’s Assembly elections, the BJP has disclosed a list of officeholders as part of its newly constituted state executive committee. Since C P Joshi became the state BJP president, three months had passed.

The previous BJP state executive was founded in 2020, and Satish Poonia presided over it from 2019 to 2023. The new committee replaces it.

According to BJP leaders, the new names on the list were included after consideration of their ability to strengthen the party’s organisational structure. There are 11 state vice presidents, 5 general secretaries, 11 secretaries, 1 treasurer, and 2 co-treasurers on the new 29-member list.

Mahant Balak Nath, an Alwar-based MP, was recently elevated to the position of state vice-president, underscoring his escalating power within the party. Balak Nath, a member of the OBC Yadav community, lately attracted the attention of the ruling Congress, which has raised concern.

Nath defeated Bhanwar Jitendra Singh, the biggest Congress leader in Alwar

Nath defeated Bhanwar Jitendra Singh, the biggest Congress leader in Alwar, to win the parliamentary seat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Since then, the BJP leader has criticised the Congress frequently for issues like the demolition of a temple in Alwar by the local government and has even compared the venerable party to the Mughals.

Other new vice presidents include former Jat lawmakers C. R. Choudhary and Santosh Ahlawat, Gujjar member of parliament Sukhbir Jaunapuriya, and Minister Prabhulal Saini.

Raje critic and current heir to the Jaipur royal line, Diya Kumari, is still the BJP’s representative for Rajsamand, nonetheless.

One feature of the list of names that stands out is the emphasis on incorporating OBC and MBC (Most Backward Class) groups, with names from the Jat, Gujjar, Yadav, Bishnoi, Kumawat, and Saini castes. The list also includes a few individuals from the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe communities.

“A push has been given to backward castes, SCs and STs to get the social engineering right before the elections. While the number of sitting MPs and MLAs in the list is low, most of the names are of people who it is believed can strengthen the organisation,” on condition of anonymity said a BJP leader .
