BJP national president J P Nadda has appointed Ratnakar as the new general secretary (organisation) of the party’s Gujarat unit. Ratnakar has replaced Bhikhubhai Dalsaniya who had been holding the post for long.
An official communication in this regard was issued by the party on Saturday which was made public Sunday. Ratnakar’s appointment has been ordered to be in force with immediate effect. A native of Devariya in Uttar Pradesh, Ratnakar is also holding the regular charge as joint secretary (organisation) for BJP’s Bihar unit.
A senior party leader said that Dalsaniya has worked a lot for the state party unit and is among the top RSS leaders in the country. “So, the party authorities must be having some bigger plans for him (Dalsaniya). He (Dalsaniya) will probably stay for one month to acquaint Ratnakar with the state party unit and the issues. After that, he may get some bigger responsibility,” the leader said.
After appointment of C R Paatil as the new president of Gujarat BJP, he has made some significant changes in the party’s organisation in Gujarat. Appointment of Ratnakar, replacing Dalsaniya, has come amid these changes in the party’s state organisation.
Paatil welcomed Ratnakar’s appointment and added that due to his efforts RSS got stronger in Uttar Pradesh.
