For the efficient management and timely contact with the party workers, BJP is mulling to experiment with smaller units in large districts like Kangra, Mandi and Shimla.
At Dharamshala meeting, which was headed by state party chief Satpal Singh Satti and attended by Suresh Bhardwaj, Rajiv Bindal, Ram Swaroop, Vipin Parmar and Pawan Rana, committee was constituted and Shimla legislature Suresh Bhardwaj was appointed its head. Rajiv Bindal, Ram Swaroop, Vipin Parmar and Pawan Rana were appointed its members. State co-incharge Shayam Jaju was also present at the meeting.
The committee after holding discussions with all the 68 constituency level BJP mandals and district chiefs will finalise its report by January 30. The report will then be placed before the core group meeting.
If this plan goes through, the bigger Assembly segments could have two mandal chiefs and the bigger districts like Kangra, Mandi and Shimla could have two or three district chiefs. Many party leaders believe that it can help party with better management of its affairs and will enable top leader to contact directly with workers.
