The state unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is likely to elect its president, for next three years, in the last week of this month. The party has completed elections of members of state council and district presidents in more than 50 per cent districts, which is the mandatory condition for election of the state president. These elected members of party's state council will elect the new state president.
The state election in-charge and vice-president Swatantra Dev Singh said that he had sent the list of the elected district presidents and members of the state council to national election in-charge Thawar Chand Gehlot.
Gehlot told The Indian Express: "Organisation elections have been completed in 51 districts of UP and I will declare the date for election of the state president very soon. It may be held in November last week in Lucknow." If there are more than one candidate in the fray, voting would be held.
