Kollam: BJP is gearing up to bring changes in the party hierarchy in Kerala from booth-level to state level. Though BJP state president K Surendran is likely to continue in his position, new faces will replace the majority of state general secretaries. The details are revealed in reports submitted by union ministers and Kerala Prabhari Prakash Javadekar.
According to reports, the union ministers cited that several party leaders in the state are acting like 'general managers' and fail to take decisions on their own. It is reported that all general secretaries, excluding MT Ramesh, will be removed.
Further, Thiruvananthapuram district president VV Rajesh and former district president S Suresh are some names rumoured to be recommended for the general secretary position. Meanwhile, some RSS leaders in the state are likely to be recommended for the position.
Those who completed two terms as district presidents will be removed and will be reinstated in a different role.
Meanwhile, those opposing Surendran in state leadership demanded his removal from office ahead of the crucial Lok Sabha polls in 2024. However, it is unlikely that central leadership will oust him from his office.
