Amid rising dissent within the West Bengal BJP, state unit president Sukanta Majumdar took the daring resolution of dissolving all departments and cells fashioned in 2018 beneath former president Dilip Ghosh. The transfer is being seen as an try to accommodate rising variety of so-called rebels.
Late on Thursday, the state BJP’s media cell issued an announcement, “As per instruction of Dr Sukanta Majumdar, MP, state president of West Bengal BJP, all departments and cells stand dissolved till the time they are reconstituted and new appointments made.”
The announcement induced a flurry of interpretations by the media and leaders within the TMC as Majumdar’s resolution covers all appointments/committees reformed just lately and prior to now by Ghosh.

After the BJP’s meeting election debacle in West Bengal, the state unit on September 20 introduced a recent record of 72 committee members, together with morcha presidents, incharges and co-incharges for various departments within the occasion.
After the appointment of Majumdar as the brand new state president, an organisational change was required because the occasion was witnessing numerous switchovers to the ruling TMC.
To carry the fort in Bengal amid chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s rising recognition, BJP nationwide president JP Nadda gave duty to 10 MLAs and 6 MPs to strengthen the occasion throughout the state.
Probably the most important organisational change seen within the record was the induction of two new MLAs as normal secretary and 6 new MLAs as secretary. This was most likely the primary time when the state BJP gave the duty to new faces.
Following the organisational modifications, the state BJP just lately confronted a setback after union minister Shantanu Thakur left the ‘West Bengal BJP WhatsApp Group’ on January 3.
Presently, Thakur holds the portfolio of minister of state for ports, transport and waterways. He’s the BJP MP from Bongaon in North 24 Parganas district. He had expressed his discontent after Matua neighborhood leaders weren’t given prominence within the revised state committee record introduced on December 23.
5 BJP MLAs had additionally stop the official WhatsApp group of the occasion’s legislature.
Therefore, the state unit swung into motion to deal with the disaster and dissolved all departments and cells until they’re reconstituted and new appointments made.
“The move comes two days after rebel BJP leaders decided to sit for a meeting on January 15 to discuss differences between the old timers and new members in the party,” stated a state BJP vice-president.
