Poonam Mahajan, the daughter of late Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pramod Mahajan, has been appointed a vice president of the party's youth wing.


Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha president Anurag Thakur on Thursday appointed Mahajan as one of its vice president.

Kamlesh Paswan, a party MP from Bansgaon in Uttar Pradesh and Raghav Lakhanpal, an MLA from the state, have also been made vice presidents.

Poonam Mahajan had lost the last assembly polls in Maharashtra.

The team of office-bearers announced by Thakur, an MP from Himachal Pradesh, includes five vice presidents, two general secretaries, six secretaries and a treasurer.

There are 34 executive members and 16 special invitees, including some MLAs.

The largest number of office-bearers are from Uttar Pradesh, where the fortunes of the party have declined over the past few years.
