Lakshmikant Bajpai was on Sunday elected unopposed to the post of president of state unit of BJP, party sources said in Lucknow.


In the elections which were held after a gap of 12 years, where state executive members of the party were set to vote for BJP's state unit president, Bajpai was elected unopposed as no one else had staked claim for the post, they said.

During the 12 years, state unit presidents were nominated by the central leadership, they said, adding, Bajpai was nominated to the post in April.

His tenure was set to end in December, and in the elections to the post, he won unopposed, they said.
