BJP President Nadda announces new team: Ram Madhav, GVL & Muralidhar Rao dropped, Tejaswi youth wing’s chief

Eight months after taking over as National President of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Jagat Prakash Nadda on Saturday announced the 70-member national executive committee as his new team.

What is more surprising is the absence of big names like G V L Narasimha Rao, Ram Madhav and P Muralidhar Rao in the list. While GVL was the national official spokesman, Ram Madhav from Andhra and P Muralidhar Rao from Telangana was the national general secretaries in the previous term. It is yet not known whether they will be given another assignment. Tejashwi Surya (BJP MP) has been made the new President of Yuva Morcha; the party’s youth wing. Tejaswi replaces Poonam Mahajan.

The new team was expected in April but due to the coronavirus epidemic and nationwide lockdown, the party high command could neither convene the new team nor convene a meeting of national officials by calling a meeting of the National Executive and Council. Reportedly, he had prepared a list of national officials a few months back after brainstorming with senior party leaders.

In Nadda's new team, for the first time, 12 vice presidents have been appointed. They include two leaders from Jharkhand -- former chief minister Raghuvar Das and MP Annapurna Devi, besides Dr. Raman Singh and Vasundhara Raje Scindia, former chief ministers of Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan respectively. Mandsaur MP Sudhir Gupta is made the co-treasurer of the party.

While Nadda dropped Ram Madhav, Dr. Anil Jain, Murlidhar Rao and Saroj Pande as general secretaries -- sources say they may be given new responsibilities -- many new faces were given a place in the team as general secretaries. While Kailash Vijayvargiya retained his position, the other new general secretaries are Bhupendra Yadav, Arun Singh, Dushyant Kumar Gautam, D. Purandeshwari, CT Ravi, Tarun Chugh and Dilip Saikia. Among them, Tarun Chugh, who was a national secretary in-charge of Andaman and Nicobar, got elevated to the position of general secretary of the party.

In the new organizational setup, Tejaswi Surya replaced Poonam Mahajan as president of Bharatiya Janata Party Yuva Morcha while Alka Gurjar was made its national secretary. Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore was appointed as the party's national spokesperson while Anil Baluni was made national head of the party's media department.  Lal Singh Arya is now the president of BJP's Anusuchit Jati Morcha while former minister Omprakash Dhruve is made its national secretary.

In the new team, Nadda has tried to give equal participation to every state.

Modi’s lieutenants tipped to become BJP general secretaries

With the BJP suddenly springing into action with its virtual rallies in Bihar, West Bengal and many other activities. The party is likely to appoint a few new office bearers in the new team led by president J P Nadda. Former Union minister Manoj Sinha and former Jharkhand CM Raghubar Das are likely to appointed general secretaries of the party. Sinha and Das are considered Prime Minister Modi’s choicest leaders in their own bastions i.e. UP and Jharkhand.

 

Present media cell in-charge Anil Baluni and spokespersons Sudhanshu Trivedi may be appointed national secretaries. Three names are doing rounds for the post of media cell chief, in one case scenario Baluni may be asked to continue but he does not want to continue. In case two scenario co-in charge of media cell Sanjay Mayukh wants the position but the party has certain reservations on his name however people close to him claim that he is going to be nominated Rajya Sabha as a social worker. His tenure for MLC is ending anytime soon.

 

In the third case scenario, Trivedi may be asked the responsibility of media cell who has emerged as a spokesperson. Most of the other general secretaries will be repeated and a few will be promoted to vice presidents. One or two may be dropped. A few vice presidents may also be dropped. Some names will come from West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

Nadda to take over as full time BJP President today

By IndianMandarins 20 Jan 2020

The BJP is going to get a new president on January 20, 2020 with the name of former Union Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda likely to announced to succeed Union home minister Amit Shah as the party chief. Nadda is the working president of the BJP at the moment. His term as BJP National President will be for three years.

Nadda has the daunting task of dealing with two crucial Assembly elections – Delhi that is underway and West Bengal being the most difficult one – besides taking the message of the party to people on CAA.

Nadda is known for his organisational acumen right from the time of ABVP. He was elected to Himachal Pradesh Assembly thrice and held the responsibility of cabinet minister under Prem Kumar Dhumal before moving to Delhi as party general secretary.

He was party general secretary under Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari and also under Amit Shah before being elevated as working president. Nadda got his education in Patna, Bihar before shifted to Himachal Pradesh.

Shah to focus more on home ministry for many unfinished works

By IndianMandarins 16 Oct 2019

Before relinquishing his post as party president by December, BJP president Amit Shah not only wants to train the new president to his style of working but also want major work of the party to be done. Now Shah wants to pay his complete attention of the home ministry where several unfinished issues are to be accomplished.

Shah has announced that he would make way for a new leader to head the BJP after party’s organisational elections are over by the end of this year. Shah wants state organization to be of his choice and by the time elections process of Delhi and Jharkhand will be started if not over.

Tenure of Shah gets over in December this year and it is likely that the present national executive president Jagat Prakash Nadda will be made the fulltime president of the party.

It was expected that Shah will make way for a new leader after being inducted as a Cabinet minister by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his government following ‘one person one post’ but he remained at the helm to complete some unfinished task.  Organisational elections are going on and a new president will assume responsibility in next two months’ time to take care of the party affairs.

Task cut out for Nadda to win Assembly elections and expand base down south

By IndianMandarins 18 Jun 2019

Appointment of former Union health minister Jagat Prakash Nadda as the working president of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been inevitable as the duo Modi-Shah’s any decision is not without any purpose be it induction of someone in the council of minister or dropping someone from somewhere.

 

With party president Amit Shah taking over as Union Home minister, it became obvious that he would make way for someone to take over as the new party president but anointment of Nadda was neither a decision taken in huff nor just a formality to comply with one leader one post norm rather it was a well thought out decision and part of a party strategy.

 

Actually the BJP was getting inputs about anger of Brahmins for getting raw deals in the party, so this decision would prove to be handy. But the most interesting part is that the BJP has much of a stake in West Bengal and Nadda being married to a Bengali Brahmin Mallika Banerjee who was also an ABVP activist could prove to be quite useful.

 

So the task cut out for Nadda is very clear to win Assembly elections in days to come and expand party’s base down south but before that to achieve the target of increase the membership of the BJP by 20 per cent. He has the experience of working in Bihar as he grew up in Patna only as Bihar is going to be the next trouble for the party.

 

After a stint into the Himachal Pradesh politics, Nadda was moved to the national politics in 2010 as national general secretary of the party for his organizational skills under Nitin Gadkari as the president of the BJP in 2009. Nadda made his entry to the Rajya Sabha in 2012 and was appointed a minister in the Narendra Modi government in the first expansion of the council of ministers in November 2014. He held the crucial health ministry since then. His name was also considered for the post of chief minister of Himachal Pradesh but resentment from senior leaders scuttled his chances.

 

It became clear the moment Nadda was dropped from the council of ministers in the second term of the Narendra Modi government and it was seen as a precursor to the organizational responsibility that was to be assigned to him. He was in contention for the post of president of the BJP in 2014 as well after Rajnath Singh became the home minister. However, he lost to Amit Shah who was Modi’s choice for the BJP president then.

Nadda likely to become BJP president and Mahesh Sharma UP BJP chief

By IndianMandarins 31 May 2019

Some of the missing names like Jagat Prakash Nadda from the Union cabinet, Jaipur (rural) MP Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Gautam Buddha Nagar MP Mahesh Chandra Sharma in council of minister have astounded many but there is nothing to get disheartened for his sympathizers as these leaders are likely to get some important organizational responsibilities. 

 

With BJP president Amit Shah making a cut into the Modi government, J P Nadda, who was Union health minister in the Modi 1.0 government, is likely to be made national party president replacing Amit Shah. Nadda has a long experience of organizational work from ABVP to Yuva Morcha to BJP general secretary. So he will be taking care of the organizational work. He not only gets along with the PM and party president but also have blessings of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leadership.

 

The long due organizational overhauled of the BJP will be done with the new president taking over. Similarly former Union culture minister Mahesh Sharma too will be given the organizational responsibility albeit in Uttar Pradesh. Actually sources informed that the BJP wants to replace a Brahmin president with another Brahmin to maintain cast equilibrium in the state. There is another aspect of Mahesh Sharma being considered for the responsibility is that he belongs to western Uttar Pradesh – the region where the performance of the party in the just concluded Lok Sabha elections was not as good as other parts of the state. So the party wants to correct before it goes into the next Assembly elections.

 

So the party wants state president from western Uttar Pradesh and a Brahmin to give message to Brahmins and people of western UP alike. As per the sources, chief minister Yogi Adityanath will take care of eastern Uttar Pradesh who is a Rajput strongman with Hindutva image, deputy chief minister Keshav Prashad Maurya will take care of central Uttar Pradesh an OBC strongman.

 

Some other leader like Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore is also likely to be inducted into the organizational structure either in Rajasthan or in the central team.

Khemka case: Court rubs Khattar's nose in dirt of his deed

By IndianMandarins 18 Mar 2019

In this website, we have always advised the political administration to keep their dirty hands off from interfering in the career of civil servants; especially, the whistleblower officers. But Haryana CM Manoharlal Khattar and Union Health Minister JP Nadda are made of Congress cast and hence refuse to mend their behavior. One tried to harm the career of IAS officer Ashok Khemka by lower grading in the annual performance report; another did the same thing to Sanjiv Chaturvedi. And both, through their below-contempt deeds, have invited nice strictures from the courts.

 

On Monday, the Punjab and Haryana High Court rejected the adverse remarks made by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar in Ashok Khemka’s performance appraisal report, asserting that senior IAS Officer’s “integrity is beyond doubt” and he needs to be protected from the damage being done to his career.

 

A division bench of Justices Rajiv Sharma and Kuldip Singh said, “We are of the view that a person of such professional integrity needs to be protected as the professional integrity in our political, social and administrative system is depleting very fast.”

 

The Court added, “Since the number of such officers whose integrity is beyond doubt and who have professional integrity of higher standard is depleting very fast, therefore, they need protection from being damaged by recording adverse remarks against the record.”

 

Ashok Khemka had sought the expunction of the adverse remarks made by Khattar in his annual performance appraisal report (APAR) of the year 2016-2017 and restoration of the overall grade of 9.92 as was given by the Reviewing Authority.

 

Khemka was represented by advocate Shreenath A Khemka in the matter before the High Court as well as the Central Administrative Tribunal, which in December 2018 had dismissed his application saying the accepting authority, who happens to the State Chief Minister, wrote the appraisal report within the limit prescribed under the rules.

 

Dismissing the CAT order, the division bench said, “The remarks of the Accepting Officer and the grading of 9.00 given by the Accepting Authority are hereby set aside and the opinion given by the Reviewing Authority is restored. The grading of 9.92 given by the Reviewing Authority is also restored and will prevail upon the grading given by the Reporting Authority.”

 

The division bench further said, “some of the matters are better understood than said in expressed words”.

 

“The severe constraints in which an honest and upright officer works under the political leadership are well known. There are so many pulls and pressures and the officer has to work according to the rules despite all these pulls and pressures. The Reviewing Authority has recorded that the petitioner is well known in the country for effective professional integrity under very difficult circumstances”.
