Speculations of cabinet expansion and change in the organization of the ruling BJP have intensified in Tripura.
The central leadership is on a two-day tour of the state and ‘churning’ to improve the situation after MLAs feeling neglected in the party demanded change.
A highly placed BJP source said that the central team led by the party’s national general secretary (organisation) BL Santosh is on a state tour.
The central team wants to strengthen the organization by removing the dissatisfaction that has been going on in the state unit for the last few days.
In this sequence, cabinet expansion and changes in the organization are going to happen soon. The BJP leader said, “We all met Santosh Ji and demanded from him a president for the state unit who can strengthen the organization.
Current state president Manik Saha is a good person, but we need a strong state chief.
Changes may happen soon: Tripura’s BJP government and organization.
BL Santosh is meeting BJP leaders of the state in small groups and one by one. It has been told to the MLAs and MPs that Santosh will talk only on issues related to the organization.
Let us inform that earlier a group of some MLAs had reached Delhi to file a complaint against Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb.
However, the Center refused to intervene and asked the state in-charge Vinod Sonkar to resolve the matter.
In the 2018 assembly elections, the BJP shook the power of the leftist Manik Sarkar in the state. Talking about the ruling alliance, the BJP has 36 members and the IPFT eight in the 60-member assembly.
