Jammu, December 19: The tenure of current State BJP president and the Lok Sabha member from the Jammu-Poonch seat Jugal Kishore Sharma is going to end by this month. The Jammu West MLA Sat Sharma is most likely to take his position as the new president of the state BJP.
However, a group of party members which also comprises of two Cabinet ministers was in favour of appointing non-controversial Narindra Singh as the state president. Their argument was, ” Singh was an organisation man, who was at the forefront during the 2008 Amarnath land agitation. ”
Also, another faction of party member demands that the current president Jugal Kishore Sharma should be given another term as a president. According to these members, During Jugal Kishore Sharma’s tenure, BJP had created history by winning three Lok Sabha seats and 25 Assembly seats in the state and providing him another term can prove beneficial for the party.
