Decks have been cleared for election of Swatantra Dev Singh as president of Bharatiya Janata Party’s UP unit as he has filed his nomination papers for the post and national council on Thursday
The papers were filed in front of party’s central election observer Mangal Pandey here.
As only Singh has filed the nomination papers for the post, his election as BJP UP unit president is almost confirmed.
Pandey told reporters that the election procedure was almost complete. “As no other worker has filed nomination for the post of state president within the allotted time, the election of Singh is almost confirmed,” he said.
The observer said that BJP was the only political party which gave emphasis to organisational elections and the leaders were elected democratically.
For election of presidents from booth to state level, polls are held and dedicated leaders are given an opportunity to lead the party at different levels,” he said.
Pandey said the name of the new UP unit president would be announced on Friday by BJP national general secretary Bhupendra Yadav at 11 am.
