Manoj Tiwari Replaced By Adesh Kumar Gupta As Delhi BJP President
New Delhi: BJP national president Jagat Prakash Nadda on Tuesday appointed Adesh Kumar as new Delhi BJP president by replacing North East Delhi MP Manoj Tiwari who had assumed office in November 2016. "BJP president has appointed Adesh Gupta as new state unit president with immediate effect," said a leeter issued by Arun Singh, national general secretary of the party.
Gupta, a sitting councilor from West Patel Nagar and member of Standing Committee, was Mayor of North Delhi Municipal Corporation from April 2018 to April 2019. He is also a member of Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Bord (DUSIB) of Delhi government.
Manoj Tiwari, who holded the position for almost 3.5 years was facing criticism for poll debacle as the BJP got only eight seats in Delhi Assembly elections held in February this year. Party sources were claiming that the central leadership was also not happy with state unit's role during COVID crisis and this might be a reason of his removal.
