Kozhikode: BJP is all set for a major reshuffle aiming at assembly elections to be held after two years. The reorganisation will happen in the months of June-July. Leaders say that a total change will happen and more RSS leaders will be brought at the helm of the party.
General Secretary M. Ganeshan and others will have change in their roles. M. Jayakumar -former general secretary of Vinjan Bharati and who led the campaign for Kummanam Rajasekharan at Thiruvananthapuram-, or Sudarshan, who was in charge of campaigns in Alappuzha or Hari who was in charge of campaign in Kottayam, is assumed to replace Ganeshan.
RSS is not comfortable with the present leadership of BJP. RSS leaders approve ofsome in the party leadership who say that party erred in the way it dealt with issues at Sabarimala. PS Sreedharan Pillai was appointed as BJP state president to end the group fight inside BJP. However, the RSS has intimated BJP national leadership that the situation inside the party has become worse after Pillai's entry. If the leadership considers the situation in this perspective, the president also will be replaced.
The leaders have already started moves though the party claims that the reshuffle will happen irrespective of groups. A section fears that V. Muraleedharan's faction, who were ignored in the last reshuffle, will get preference. Muraleedharan, who is in charge of Andhra Pradesh wing, is not active in Kerala. K. Surendran is handling Kerala. Surendran has turned the favourite of RSS after he was jailed during Sabarimala protests. Leaders supporting PK Krishnadas believe that a reshuffle in this situation will not benefit them.
