Pushpinder Singhal, who was appointed as the district president of Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) Ludhiana unit two days ago, was welcomed by the workers at the party office on Friday.
The occasion was kept a low key affair and only a few party workers were present to welcome the newly appointed district president.
On Wednesday, Punjab BJP president Ashwani Sharma had handed over the command of the Ludhiana BJP president’s post to Singhal, who has replaced Jatinder Mittal.
Kamal Chatly and Gurdev Sharma Debi were being considered as the frontrunners for the post. In February, intense lobbying was witnessed from both the leaders during Ashwani Sharma’s visit to Guru Nanak Bhawan.
40-YEAR ASSOCIATION WITH PARTY
Singhal has been associated with the BJP for nearly 40 years. District media in-charge Satish Kumar said Singhal had started his political career in 1980 from BJP Yuva Morcha. He remained district secretary for two consecutive terms -- once he was nominated as general secretary and served as the district vice-president for six terms.
Addressing the party workers, Singhal said he would try his best to strengthen the organisational setup of the party and raise the issues “to expose the misrule of the ruling Congress government in the state.”
