Among the leaders who have been added to the BJP’s parliamentary board are B.S. Yediyurappa, Sarbananda Sonowal, and Iqbal Singh Lalpura. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the organization’s highest decision-making body, expelled Union Minister Nitin Gadkari and Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shivraj Singh Chouhan from its parliamentary board on Wednesday.
The parliamentary board of the party now includes former Karnataka chief minister B S Yediyurappa, Union minister Sarbananda Sonowal, former IPS officer Iqbal Singh Lalpura, and former Lok Sabha member Satyanarayan Jatiya, president of the BJP National OBC Morcha K Lakshman, and national secretary Sudha Yadav.
The board also includes the Prime Minister of India, J P Nadda, the head of the BJP, and Union Ministers Amit Shah and Rajnath Singh.
The BJP is making an effort to make its parliamentary board more socially and regionally representative, according to news agency PTI. Lalpura is the first member of a minority group from the Sikh community to be elected to the party’s parliamentary board. Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra, Bhupender Yadav, Om Mathur, and the head of the party’s women’s wing, Vanathi Srinivasan, have all been appointed to the party’s Central Election Committee (CEC). Jual Oran and former Union minister Shahnawaz Hussain have been removed from the list. The CEC includes every member of the parliamentary board.
