The Delhi BJP is likely to announce its new team on Saturday. After getting it approved by RSS leaders, the state unit chief kept discussing the names on the final list till late night. Efforts were made to finalise the list and seek approval from the top leadership too.
Earlier, the plan was to release the list on Friday night, a senior BJP leader said. Sources said the list may upset a few Delhi leaders as councillors are likely dominate it. Sources said there was contention on the names of general secretaries as various groups were lobbying to see their candidate in the post.
Earlier, the RSS and central leadership had suggested that MLAs be kept out of the team as they would need to run for elections if fresh polls are held. In all likelihood, it would be the councillors who would lead the Delhi unit and assisting the chief.
If sources are to be believed, the top posts are going to the councillors who then will have to give away their existing post in the corporations. There also seems to be a fight over posts of district presidents as the current leadership is of the view that state unit should be overhauled.
