BJP heavyweights stall RSS move on Ravinder Raina
New state BJP chief
5/8/2018 11:19:40 PM

Early Times Report
Jammu, May 8: Several BJP heavyweights in J&K have stalled the move by RSS for installing MLA Nowshera Ravinder Raina as new president of the saffron brigade in the state.
Notwithstanding the all powerful RSS managing the consent of the party high command, sources said that all the former state presidents of BJP as well as several senior leaders of the party have strongly opposed nomination of Raina as the state chief.
Even as the name of Raina was finalized last week, stiff opposition by senior BJP leaders has forced the RSS to review its decision as the saffron brigade cannot afford to annoy the state unit leaders at the time when Lok Sabha elections are approaching nearer, sources told Early Times.
According to the sources, the incumbent state president Sat Sharma as well as all his predecessors, including Jugal Kishore, Shamsher Singh Manhas and Ashok Khajuria have conveyed their reservation to the RSS top brass against the undue elevation of Raina.
Besides listing Raina far junior for the top position, sources said that these leaders are learnt to have also raise doubts over the competence and intelligence of the young MLA, who is known for his provocative statements.
Besides these former BJP presidents, several other BJP leaders and aspirants for the post, have reservations over the name of Raina even as the RSS has not felt it necessary to consult them over the issue.
RSS, which is known for its unilateral decision and does not believe in evolving consensus, is finding it difficult to go ahead with its decision on Raina as the top BJP leadership in the high command does not want annoyance of senior leaders in the State unit at the time when Lok Sabha polls are going to be held within an year.
