Indore, Feb 18 (Calcutta Tube) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has amended its constitution to increase the number of posts of central office-bearers and simplify the process of organisational elections.
The resolution to amend the constitution was moved by party vice-president Balasaheb Apte at the meeting of the party’s national council here Thursday, party sources said.
The move to increase the number of its office-bearers follows the party’s decision to keep one-third posts at all levels for women.
Party sources said that following the amendment, the strength of central office-bearers will go up from 29 to 37.
The party will now have nine general secretaries (seven earlier), 12 vice-presidents (nine earlier), and 15 secretaries (twelve earlier), apart from a treasurer.
The national executive will now have 120 members, the sources said.
