Tomar heading back to MP, BJP in need of new UP in-charge

The UP unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will soon get a new state in-charge as the incumbent in-charge and party national general secretary Narendra Singh Tomar is shifting to his home state Madhya Pradesh as the new state president.

It is the second major development in BJP's UP unit after re-election of Laxmikant Bajpai as the state president for next three years.

Narendra Singh Tomar is not new to the job of party chief in MP. He has previously held the post from 2006 to 2010. Tomar is Lok Sabha member from Morena constituency in Madhya Pradesh. Sources said that after a poor performance of BJP in UP Assembly elections, Tomar had shifted his focus to his home state Madhya Pradesh ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. BJP is already in power in Madhya Pradesh and Assembly elections are likely there next year.

A party leader said that the change of state in-charge could delay the announcement of the new UP team, state executive and the state election committee, which is due after Bajpai's election as the state president.

Functioning like a link between the national and the state team, a state in-charge attends all important meetings at state as well as national headquarters regarding the state affairs.
