With a view to keep away the organisational secretaries from the cesspool of power politics, BJP on Tuesday laid down a code of conduct for them providing for their exclusion from elections.
On the second day of the BJP National Executives in New Delhi on Tuesday, senior leader M Venkaiah Naidu proposed the dos and don'ts which directs the organisational secretaries to shun any kind of publicity, party sources said.
The guidelines also provided that in the event of the secretaries wanting to enter electoral politics, they would have to resign from their posts and remain in an incubation period of two years.
In a move seen as RSS' tightening its grip over the BJP, the saffron party had on Monday amended its constitution to give sweeping powers to its president Rajnath Singh to appoint and remove Sangh nominees as party Organising Secretaries from the district level upwards.
