Along with BJP, Congress is also preparing for the Lok Sabha elections to be held in 2024, the search for a new state president is a big challenge – Tezzbuzz
Along with the BJP, the Congress has also started preparations for the Lok Sabha elections to be held in 2024. In front of the Congress, which is constantly facing defeat, it is a big challenge to find a capable and reliable face as the state president, while the BJP’s eyes are fixed on the equations.
Swatantradev Singh is now a minister in the Yogi government, so a new state president has to be made in his place. At the same time, there is a discussion that the ruling party’s State General Secretary organization can also change, because there is talk of giving major responsibility in the national organization by giving promotion to Sunil Bansal, who has been continuously demonstrating his strategic skills since 2014. The Congress launched a campaign of organization creation before the assembly elections.
As the state in-charge, National General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra made many changes, but her efforts were in vain or to say that the condition of the party got worse than before. In the 2017 assembly elections, the party won seven candidates and became MLAs, while in 2022 it could barely win two. Of course, from the creation of the organization to the election strategy, Priyanka herself took every decision, but in the end, her resignation from the post of state president was taken, considering Ajay Kumar Lallu responsible for the crushing defeat.
Now for the change in policy, strategy and organization, Congress’s National Chintan Shivir is going on in Udaipur, in which state officials and special invited members of Uttar Pradesh have also gone. It is believed that the new state president may be posted soon after the camp. Again a whole new team will be raised. At the same time, the BJP’s national meeting is going to be held in Rajasthan itself on May 20 and 21. There will be a discussion on the strategy for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. In this, all the state presidents have to take the organizational report of the state. The new state president has not been made here yet, so now it is expected that a decision will be taken after this national meeting.
Actually, the party is busy in churning whether the command of the organization in UP should be handed over to the Brahmin or the Dalit. The backward population is the largest, so it is an option to make a backward person the president. With the appointment of a new president, a new team will also be formed from the state to the districts. The most important of these is that a new person can be brought in even on the basis of the State General Secretary. Behind this, there is a discussion in the organization itself that Sunil Bansal came as a co-organization general minister in Uttar Pradesh before the Lok Sabha elections in 2014. Worked with a better strategy. BJP got a historic victory. Soon after, he was made the General Secretary of the Organization, after which he set new standards of discipline and strategy in the organization.
As a result, the BJP went on to win elections in the municipal, panchayat and legislative council elections, including the 2017 assembly elections, the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and the 2022 assembly elections. In such a situation, Bansal can now be promoted and given important responsibility in the national organization. However, it is being said that to take advantage of his experience in the Lok Sabha elections, he can also be given the charge of the state organization by making him a national office bearer.
