Khimi to continue as state BJP chief

The Tribune
Dharamsala, December 13: Present acting state president of the BJP Khimi Ram would continue till at least February next year. He can even be considered for being the permanent president of the party after organisational elections are completed in the state.
This was stated by Satpal Jain, in charge of the party affairs for Himachal, while talking to The Tribune, when contacted on phone.
Setting at rest all speculations regarding the decision for the next state party president that was fuelled by the meeting of the core group of the BJP that was held at Dharamsala last night, Satpal Jain said the issue of state president of the party was not discussed at the meeting. There was no question regarding the consideration of names of two Cabinet ministers, including JP Nadda and Rajiv Bindal, for the state presidentship of the party.
He said the core group meeting, that was also attended by Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal and national party vice-president Shanta Kumar, was a routine meeting. It was to discuss the party election that was being held at booth and mandal-levels in the state.
... Satpal Jain said the main decision that was taken at the meeting was to draw a strategy for organising a function to commemorate completion of two years of the state government in December end.
... When asked about the decision regarding electing the state president unanimously, Jain said all office-bearers at the district and state-level were likely to be appointed unanimously.
He said present state president Khimi Ram was also doing a good job and could be considered for the top party post.
