Hyderabad: BJP members aspiring to posts in the district units of the party are irked that the state leadership is dragging its feet over the appointments.

Nominations for district president posts fell due in November last year. The candidates have to be selected after gathering opinions from the district units, and then appointments are made after consultations with RSS leaders, who wield influence over the BJP’s affairs in Telangana.


In private talks, some of the senior leaders admit that there is a lack of coordination between the state observers of the RSS and the BJP leadership in the state.

Every day, scores of leaders from the 33 districts visit the state party HQ to enquire about the appointments.

Sources in the party revealed that some district leaders raised the issue with the state leadership when they were approached for mobilization of cadres for the public meeting of Union home minister Amit Shah (scheduled for March 15 but now deferred).

The district cadres are irked with the state leadership as it is focused more on the appointment of a state president of the party rather than make appointments to the district units.

They reiterate that as per the party’s constitution, 70 per cent of the district units ought to have a party president in place before the election of a state president can take place.
