THE NEW State BJP executive committee could be formed only after a lot intrigue, moves and counter-moves. This was evident the very moment when the State BJP distributed two different sets of press releases to presspersons — one of the press releases did not carry the names of Anil Dave and Arvind Bhadoria.
However, Dave was promoted as vice-president. He held the post of general secretary in the previous body. Bhadoria was retained as secretary. Interestingly, the two leaders do not see eye to eye.
The sources said Anil Dave, whose inclusion in the new body was vehemently opposed by a section of party, had almost been dropped.
However, he was inducted in the team only after intervention from the RSS. Likewise, outgoing organising general secretary Kaptan Singh Solanki used his influence to shield Arvind Bhadoria.
